Strong AI vs. Weak AI
Definition of Weak AI
This type of intelligence has been used in different machines for a long time and therefore is a tested field, and many developments are being made in it to further improve it. It has applications in the area of computer games in which a person plays with a computer without knowing that it is not the computer which is playing the game with them, but actually, another person has added those moves with the help of an algorithm. It is based on the theory that instead of expecting machines to turn into humans, we should ask them to perform complicated tasks with the help of information and see the results. This is more used by engineers and different companies who require robots to perform a particular task. Such as collecting and placing of items on the belt. Similarly, other duties which are necessary to be completed, all the data and information related to them is entered into the machine with the help of programming, and it ends up finishing the job.
Definition of Strong AI
This is the newest type of artificial intelligence which makes use of the human mind and tries to perform activities on its own without any external help. The main aim of this technology is to develop machines so much that they stop depending on human beings to perform different tasks and can take decisions on the spot. This is just in the initial stage, and there is a long way to go before such machines can be used, but research is being carried out on it. Currently, there are no specific examples of Strong Artificial Intelligence, but one area which makes use of this technology is the chat robots which talk to humans. Different applications provide this facility, and bots talk to humans depending on the message sent and reply back without any pre-entered algorithm to reply something specific. This field is being ignored because of Applied Artificial Intelligence, which gives instant results for the activities that are needed to be performed at that time but has a lot of scopes.
