Artificial or Augmented Intelligence?
Computer algorithms have advanced to the point where machines are able to “learn” as they analyze data. In machine learning, otherwise known as deep learning, systems are able to identify predictive patterns and then output results. Learning also takes place through natural language processing (NLP) — in which machines “read” diverse types of written information — and via robot process automation (“bots”). However, there is some debate about whether these examples can be considered pure artificial intelligence, as these algorithms cannot function without human inputs.1 Instead, the term augmented intelligence is preferred to describe the technology currently in place.
