Artificial Intelligence or AI is the science and engineering of making intelligent machines. The term was first coined in 1956 by John McCarthy at a Dartmouth conference. Today, AI enabled machines are used in decision making, solving complex problems, making precise predictions, and much more.
Domains of Artificial Intelligence
Following are the key domains that contributes to AI’s accuracy of task performance:
NLP (Natural Language Processing)
Skills required to start learning AI
Here’s a check down list for those who are new to AI learning and want to explore more on this subject:
One should have hunger to learn and explore new topics
Basic concepts of linear algebra, calculus, probability, and statistics to optimize data and models, make assumptions/hypotheses, and data analysis and interpretation skills.
Knowledge of Programming Language like Python, C++, JAVA, LISP, R, etc.
What is the right age to start leaning AI?
Well, anyone can lean AI at any age. However, as several studies suggest young minds are quick learners than any other age of life, it’s better to start early. Many schools nowadays are including AI Learning as a part of the school curriculum. In fact, children as young as 2-3 years of age can also start exploring AI. Pre middle school is the best time for kids to lean Artificial Intelligence as at this age kids are free to use their imaginations and enjoy discovering new things with less resistance from parents and peers.
