At its core, artificial intelligence it is about equipping machines with cognitive abilities so that they can perform certain tasks better than humans. This is precisely the essence of the innovation – and it represents a revolution, because in the course of history, the ability to analyze and plan, as well as draw logical conclusions, has been something reserved solely for humankind up to this point.
Several industrial revolutions didn’t change anything about that. From the steam engine to the modern industrial robot, they were always about mechanization or automation. The machines surpassed human muscle power or precision and concentration, but only today, thanks to AI, can computers handle the most complex problems better than humans.
