In 2015, Google developed a program based on Deep learning method using artificial neural networks and the task was to beat world champion in the board game Go. It is known as that more than chess, Go is a substantially more complex where 361 opening is possible in Go, however, it was believed that humans were not able to beaten by the computers in such game whereas AlphaGo outshine such remarks and delivered a high performance by using artificial neural network called as Deep Learning.
The basis of most applications in Artificial Intelligence was on artificial neural networks and Deep Learning method. Some technical application can be seen in usage are by Facebook based on image recognition algorithms, speech recognition algorithm in smart speakers and self-driving cars, “Siri” or even “Alexa” are some example of such technology.
In my opinion, the research once goes into more depth and improving the machine to enact like human cannot be underestimated. The intelligence embedded in such machine cannot be underestimated that how fast they can perform and reacting in numerous ways by analysing your every move is beyond comprehend.
