Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think and learn like humans. AI involves the development of algorithms and computer programs that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and language translation. AI technology is used in various […]

Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems

Lethal Autonomous Weapon Systems (LAWS) refer to weapons that can operate on their own without human intervention. These weapons are designed to identify, target, and attack a specific target without requiring human input. The concern with LAWS is that they could potentially malfunction or make incorrect decisions, leading to unintended harm or casualties. There is […]

Machine Learning

Machine Learning is a subset of artificial intelligence that involves the use of statistical algorithms and computer programs to enable machines to improve their performance on a specific task by learning from data, without being explicitly programmed. The machine learning algorithms are designed to automatically identify patterns and insights in data, and use these insights […]

Natural Language Processing

Natural Language Processing (NLP) is a subfield of computer science and artificial intelligence that focuses on the interaction between computers and human language. It involves programming computers to process, analyze, and understand natural language data in order to perform tasks such as language translation, sentiment analysis, speech recognition, and text summarization. NLP is used in […]
