Artificial intelligence (AI) is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems.
In Nigeria, AI has the power to reduce election fraud, improve infrastructure design and provide greater government security for intelligence, military and foreign relations.
It would create jobs and expand job growth as it is expected to become more deeply embedded in science, healthcare, global business and trade.
AI will evolve with greater transparency to resolve trust issues and lack of understanding. It will interface with custom software development such as Google Assistant, Alexa and Siri.
AI has the ability to “learn” when information is acquired. Like the human brain, it relies on reasoning to reach definite conclusions, approximations of conclusions, follow rules and directions for use of information acquired. A self-correction feature is another capability of AI.
These features have the potential to revolutionize how businesses perform many daily tasks.
It could obtain vital Information about terrorists, analyze their attacking patterns, weapons and location so as to make effective innovations as to how they can be caught and which mode of contact is feasible enough to deter others. In this sense, a rational fear would be developed. AI could provide tactics and strategies to use in key locations from data that has been previously collected and evaluated. By Careful use and security terrorism might be halted.
Google already analyzes email for spam by analyzing email content that appears suspicious or has been identified as originating from a known spam web address.
Search, sort, retrieval and updating or deletion of data through the use of AI would be timely and cost-effective.
In Healthcare, AI could gather data on various drugs and make a determination on side effects before drugs are marketed. For drug researchers relying on AI as an assistant, it would replace hundreds of hours of drug tests and would help drugs be released to market more expediently.
It could be used as an assistant to compile medical history and information from hierarchical sources such as physicians or hospital medical data.
The auto industry has already begun to design innovative safety features such as self driving vehicles, cruise control that automatically maintains a vehicle’s speed and lane detection systems that would aid drivers and avoid traffic accidents on crowded roadways. AI would assist in quantifying advancements of these features.
