Deary - An insight into AI


“Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans.”

If you are not a technology wiz, the notions of artificial intelligence can seem a somewhat alien concept - aiding the negative stigma AI receives. Controversially, if you are more aware of the ideas behind AI, you may have a more structured judgment on how AI technology can be used to improve our futures or, cause a hindrance to our lives – either way, this article will aim to answer many common questions people experience within the realm of AI technology.

Artificial intelligence today is formally known as narrow AI (or weak AI), in that it has been designed to perform a narrow task. Tasks such as facial recognition, driving a car or as Deary does, retrieving your most meaningful messages from your chat conversations. Nevertheless, the long-term goal of many researchers is to create general AI which can outperform humans at almost every cognitive task!


Top myths about AI

  1. AI will create evil robots which will take over the world – actual worry: AI turning competent with goals misaligned by us. AI/the robots created with this technology cannot turn ‘evil’. AI will turn smarter than it is at this moment, however, smarter does not equal evil.

  2. Only Luddites worry about the consequences of AI – Many top AI researchers also share equal concerns. However, the point is not to be worried, to avoid, or even to stop AI developments. The main point is to re-define our society in order to increase people’s quality of life, instead of turning AI into a problem. Yes, certain jobs will be replaced by AI, but many new jobs and opportunities will arise as well.

  3. Super intelligence is just years away – This will take a bit longer than just a few years. Nobody knows how fast certain developments can happen, however, it will take longer than just a few years. (Superintelligence is a hypothetical agent that possesses intelligence far surpassing that of the most gifted human minds).

How Deary uses AI technology

AI makes it possible for Deary to recognize which messages in your conversations are truly meaningful. Deary will understand your emotions and feelings, which makes it possible to select your best messages. The more you will use Deary, the better Deary understands your personal emotions and messages. Thanks to AI, Deary makes it possible to re-live those funny and loving messages.

So, don’t be scared of a big word such as AI, but embrace the positives it brings to our everyday lives.
