Artificial Intelligence: Architect of the Future and Engine of Change

Part 1

Today, the rapid advancement of technology places the concept of artificial intelligence at the center of our lives. At this point, it is an "Anaconda" that needs to be talked about. Because these intelligent systems are about to become a part of our daily lives, not just in science fiction movies. In this fluid article, we will take a journey from our introduction to artificial intelligence (AI) to how this technology can change our world.

Artificial Intelligence: Emergence and Evolution

Artificial Intelligence (AI) conceptually dates back to the mid-20th century when computers were first invented. However, the birth of AI in real terms came with the increase in the processing capacity of computers and the development of learning algorithms. In the second half of the 20th century, scientists and engineers began to embrace the idea that machines could mimic human-like thought processes. During this period, computers were able to perform simple tasks, but they took the first steps towards potentially becoming truly intelligent and learning systems.

This evolutionary process, especially towards the beginning of the 21st century, includes important turning points that laid the foundations for AI. Advances in disciplines such as data science, deep learning and machine learning have increased AI's ability to perform complex tasks and solve complex problems. This, of course, has helped give rise to specialized AIs such as "Chat GPT".

Advances in learning algorithms have also enabled AI to perform human-like on a variety of tasks. In this process, the analysis of large data sets and model training played a critical role in the evolution of AI. Algorithms that learn from data sets have become customizable for use in various sectors. Today, waitressing, package delivery on Amazon, revolutionary work in vehicles have been a natural result of this process.

The evolution of AI is notable for constantly improving its learning capabilities and increasing its ability to solve real-world problems. This evolution will continue, enabling even more complex and deep applications of AI in the future. Advances in areas such as data science, object recognition, language processing and autonomous systems are expanding the boundaries of AI and opening up application areas that were not possible before. (Like writing a PhD thesis on AI models :) )

The evolution of AI is moving in parallel with the rapid development of technology. This evolution allows AI to move from being just a science fiction concept to becoming an integral part of our daily lives. In the future, AI is expected to become even more sophisticated and effective, which will bring further innovation and transformation across many industries.

Artificial Intelligence and Education: Key to the Next Generation

The use of artificial intelligence (AI) in education is not only transforming the way students acquire knowledge, but it also offers great advantages to teachers, schools and education systems. In this context, let us elaborate on the role of AI in education:

  • Student-Centered Learning Experiences: AI can use advanced analytical capabilities to understand the individual learning style and needs of each student. In this way, it can take an approach to maximize each student's potential by providing them with customized learning content and strategies. By continuously monitoring student performance, they can provide students with tasks and activities at appropriate levels of difficulty, thus optimizing the learning process.

  • Educational Material Recommendations: AI can be effective in recommending appropriate learning materials to students. Based on the learner's interests and strengths/weaknesses, it can provide personalized recommendations. This can help students learn in a more effective and motivating way.

  • Support for Teachers: AI can help teachers understand student performance in the classroom, better guide students and optimize lesson planning. Data analysis and learning algorithms allow teachers to better track student progress and intervene according to their needs.

  • Adaptive Education Platforms: AI has a significant impact on adaptive learning platforms. These platforms deliver content based on the student's current level of knowledge and learning speed. If the learner is progressing faster, they can offer challenging tasks, and if they are struggling, they can offer supportive content to better understand the concepts.

  • Data Analytics in Education: AI can provide an overview of education systems by analyzing large data sets. This can help schools and educational institutions assess their overall performance, monitor student achievement and optimize educational policies.

  • AI could fundamentally change the educational experience of future generations by introducing teaching and learning methods that were not previously possible in education. However, it is important that this technology is managed in a way that is sensitive to ethical and privacy issues, and that teachers still value human interaction. In this way, while AI opens new horizons in education, the value of the human factor is not ignored.

Artificial Intelligence and Health: Your Doctor Could Be an Algorithm

Artificial intelligence (AI) is driving a major transformation in the healthcare sector and could fundamentally change the doctor-patient relationship in the future. Let's elaborate on the role of AI in healthcare in more detail:

  • Fast and Accurate Diagnoses: AI has extraordinary potential to detect diseases using medical image analysis and large data sets. For example, by analyzing radiological images, early diagnosis of diseases such as cancer can be realized quickly. This can make treatment processes more effective and save lives.

  • Patient Tracking and Recommendations: By monitoring patients' health data, AI can play an important role in the management and treatment processes of chronic diseases. Patient tracking systems can help optimize patients' health status by providing personalized recommendations. This allows for more proactive management of healthcare services.

  • Robot Surgeons: AI can also play an important role in surgical interventions. Robotic surgical systems can help surgeons perform more precise and effective operations. This could shorten recovery processes and reduce the risks of surgical interventions.

  • Drug Development Processes: AI can accelerate and optimize drug development processes. By analyzing big data, genetic information and molecular structures, potential drug candidates can be identified more quickly. This contributes to the faster emergence of new treatment methods.

  • Analyzing Health Data: By analyzing health data, AI can provide important information about general health trends. Through epidemiological analysis, patterns of disease spread can be determined and health policies can be formulated more effectively.

  • Support to Doctors: AI can support doctors in diagnosis and treatment planning. Learning algorithms can provide up-to-date information to doctors by continuously following the current medical literature. This can help doctors make more informed decisions.

This interactive and participatory role of AI in healthcare could make healthcare more accessible, effective and personalized in the future. This is already being experimented with today. Especially in surgeries, the absence of human problems such as tremors will expand the use of AI in the field of health in the future.

In our next article; we will talk about how Artificial Intelligence will shape professions and how those who are not shaped will be excluded by the system. Until then, "Stay with Science
