AI is basically about a computing system being smart or sentient like a human being, being able to learn and consider moral and ethical dilemmas.
AI is far more complex and difficult to achieve with today’s state of technology.
Teaching computers to think and understand the world the same way a human brain does is a nearly impossible endeavour.
Perhaps the best way to illustrate the delicate and furious challenges that AI must meet is to use the Clint Eastwood film Sully: Miracle on the Hudson, which is about the actual heroic efforts of US Airways pilots Captain Chesley “Sully” Sullenberger and First Officer Jeff Skiles to safely land in New York’s Hudson River after its engines were struck by birds.
Aside from landing and take-off, where pilots are generally in full control of the plane, the rest of the journey is characterised as “automation management” where computers control the flight.
While that is not machine learning or AI, it is certainly advanced automation at the highest levels.
