With the rise of Artificial Intelligence (AI), there is a new and the most controversial debate going on. People are predicting that it will soon replace the human workforce and affect employment negatively. While some people are against the use of AI, a good majority is in favour of it. Those who are against it, are probably thinking that it will replace humans in the longer run, and thus do not support the use of it. However, those who are in favour of AI, are already using it in their work and study tasks.
Let us first discuss what exactly Artificial Intelligence is.
What is Artificial Intelligence?
Artificial Intelligence is the theory and development of computer systems and other intelligent machines to allow them to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence. AI, in simple words, is intelligence based on perceiving, recognizing, identifying and making decisions on the basis of inferred information. The new and latest AI systems are programmed to learn from experience, adapt to new situations, and make decisions based on the collected data.
AI has been there for decades. We have heard of it in movies and novels in the form of robots that are designed to help humans. These robots are mostly friendly, but sometimes not.
However, it wasn’t until recently that AI started to gain popularity. The recent AI tools are basically bots but behind our computer screens. They are engineered to have machine-learning algorithms that make them a valuable tool for businesses, organizations, students, and other individuals.
The Most Popular AI Tools
According to Forbes, it is one of the most popular AI tools that is being used today. It has a conversational interface based on GPT-3 large language models by OpenAI. It is like a conversation between the user and the Chat Bot where it answers your queries and gives you whatever information you have asked for. The recent version of it is made free for the public to use, and is becoming viral. It gives you information in the form of text, prose, poetry and even coding.
NVIDIA is most popularly known for their sensational graphics cards, particularly NVIDIA GeForce RTX 3000 and the more recent NVIDIA GeForce RTX 4000. The graphics cards make use of NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 and 3.0 that allows them to have machine-learning capabilities. This helps in making the overall graphical experience better over time. The RTX 3000 series features NVIDIA DLSS 2.0 while the RTX 4000 series features NVIDIA DLSS 3.0.
Another popular AI tool that is universally accepted and used is Grammarly. It is a cloud-based typing assistant designed for American English. Grammarly reviews and identifies spelling, punctuation, grammar, clarity, tone, engagement and plagiarism, while giving you suggestions to improve your text, prose and emails.
This one is for the image editors and graphic designers. It is an AI tool that lets you edit and retouch the pictures by removing unwanted objects, people, signs and logos, by using a procedure called ‘inpainting’. It gives you the perfect image smartly and efficiently.
Designed by Google, it is a free, end-to-end, open-source software library for machine learning. It allows efficient computation of large-scale data and creation of complex neural networks. It is designed to be flexible so it can be used for a wide range of tasks including, image and speech recognition, natural language processing (NLP), and time-series analysis.
This unique AI tool helps the engineers and developers in creating complex machine-learning models.
How to use these tools?
Now that you have a brief idea of what AI is, let’s dive into how you can use it. In order to make the most out of these AI tools, you should first have one of the latest laptops or a computer with a good processor and good graphics. Yep, that’s the first step to it! The old and outdated computers and laptops might freeze while using the AI tools, and might not support it. They’ll be slow and you won’t really enjoy using AI on them. The software engineers, developers, designers and anyone who has to deal with large-scale data would agree to this.
Second, you need to have a good internet connection since most of them are available online. Some of them can be downloaded and have extensions that will also let you work offline, such as Grammarly. It lets you write and edit offline as well. However, these extensions work better when you are working online as they are constantly updated by the online server.
Third, you are not supposed to rely on it completely. It is, after all, an artificially designed machine bot that is designed to help you, not do your job for you. There are some loopholes that people have pointed out in these AI tools. Thus, it is always suggested to check the end-product for shortcomings and correct it before finalizing anything.
Artifical Intelligence helps increase productivity
Majority of the students and professionals are taking help from these AI tools to save their time and increase productivity. It helps them learn and get better at what they are doing, be it a school assignment or a task at work.
There is a “hot debate” regarding whether or not AI tools will replace humans. To which we’d say that these tools are designed to help you get better at school and at work, not to replace you. Entrepreneurs who are on a tight budget are using it to make some profit without having to invest a huge capital into hiring a huge workforce. Students are using it to get better grades. Professionals are using it to save some time and increase productivity. Organisations are using it to reach their goals in real-time. It is basically a WIN-WIN situation for all.
