Why AI?

Why AI?

AI has landed!! At SmartMaker, we believe that AI represents the next technology tsunami frontier that is so interesting and exciting that it is perhaps the best tool to instigate the young mind and create passion not only for coding but STEAM in general. We have designed camps for students of all age groups and stages. Apart from the love of technology, we are practical by addressing how can our camps galvanize students to take AP computer science courses, help secure high school level internships, or receive one of the highest paid college internships at the best of the corporations and research labs.

Here are some of the practical and probably more realistic possibilities of AI that defines the spirit of SmartMaker programs. 
The pace of progress in artificial intelligence is incredibly fast. Unless you have direct exposure to groups like Deep mind, you have no idea how fast—it is growing at a pace close to exponential.

Artificial intelligence will reach human levels by around 2029. Follow that out further to, say, 2045, we will have multiplied the intelligence, the human biological machine intelligence of our civilization a billion-fold.

Artificial intelligence may seem like something out of science fiction, but most of us already use tools and services every day that rely on AI…More sophisticated AI systems can already diagnose diseases, drive cars and search the skies for planets better than people. This is why AI is such an exciting field — it opens up so many new possibilities for enhancing humanity’s capabilities.

Much of what we do with machine learning happens beneath the surface. Machine learning drives our algorithms for demand forecasting, product search ranking, product and deals recommendations, merchandising placements, fraud detection, translations, and much more. Though less visible, much of the impact of machine learning will be of this type — quietly but meaningfully improving core operations.

Some people call this artificial intelligence, but the reality is this technology will enhance us. So instead of artificial intelligence, I think we'll augment our intelligence ... Potential $2 trillion dollar market for cognitive computing.
