AI or not AI?¶
Artificial Intelligence refers to the ability of machines to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making and language translation.
AI systems can be divided into two main categories: 'weak' AI and 'strong' AI.
Weak AI is designed to perform certain tasks such as image or speech recognition without understanding the underlying meaning. These AI systems are trained to perform specific tasks using large amounts of data, such as recognizing a face in an image or transcribing spoken words into text.
Strong AI, on the other hand, refers to AI systems that have human-like general intelligence and are able to understand or learn any intellectual task that a human can. This type of AI is not yet fully developed and is still the subject of much research and development in the field.
We do not want to go into detail about the technical aspects of AI in this White Paper, because for most people the only thing that matters is this: Artificial Intelligence has the potential to revolutionise numerous industries and aspects of daily life, from healthcare to transport, entertainment, education and project management.
For this reason, all project stakeholders should be aware of the topic of AI in project management and why AI in project management makes sense.
