Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence of machines and the branch of computer science that aims to create it. AI research deals with the question of how to create computers that are capable of intelligent behaviour.

In practical terms, AI applications can be deployed in a number of situations. From marketing automation to writing articles, AI systems can be used to reduce the amount of work needed to complete a task.

How Can You Use Artificial Intelligence Today?

In case you are wondering, we are still a long way from the scenarios depicted in science-fiction movies. However, researchers keep making interesting advances with each passing year.

Let’s take a look at a web application, which has been making headlines lately. I’m talking about ChatGPT, from OpenAI.

If this is the first time you are hearing about ChatGPT, then I strongly suggest you visit the application’s page because that’s where the future of AI development is heading.

In OpenAI’s own words, the usefulness of ChatGPT is nothing short of amazing:

“The OpenAI API can be applied to virtually any task that involves understanding or generating natural language or code. We offer a spectrum of models with different levels of power suitable for different tasks, as well as the ability to fine-tune your own custom models. These models can be used for everything from content generation to semantic search and classification.”

In its current state, ChatGPT is a perfect example of machine learning and deep learning. For example, the first two paragraphs of this article were generated by it, as shown in the screen shot below:

What Does This Mean For The Future Of Web Development?

The implications of artificial intelligence for web development are hard to quantify at the moment. In other words, we don’t know how far we are from having an application like ChatGPT integrate with a no-code web development platform.

It is not lost on me that my skill set might be rendered obsolete in just a few years. However, as impressive as the ChatGPT’s AI algorithm is, it still needs a lot of human input (specially when it comes to code) to generate a script or a snippet of code. In fact, machine learning and deep learning systems rely on human input to improve on its understanding of our instructions.

In conclusion, the future of artificial intelligence looks bright. I look forward to the days when marketing automation can take advantage of AI problem solving.

What Are The Implications For The Business World At Large?

Artificial intelligence is not limited to the realm of web applications. Any knowledge-based field such as law, medicine, engineering, etc, could be severely impacted by this technology.
