Data: The pulse of Artificial intelligence
The data is becoming more meaningful and contextually relevant, breaks new ground for machine learning and artificial intelligence (AI), even moves them from research labs to production.
Data is any set of character that has been gathered from different sources and translated or twisted to fulfill some purpose, usually for analysis.
It can be anything text, number, picture, sound or video.
how data and artificial intelligence are closely related?
The artificial intelligence revolution is clearly happening. And it’s super exciting. Today Ai transform each and every sector.
But there’s a glitch with AI. In order for A.I. to work its miracles, it’s going to need data. Massive amounts of data.
How AI get its Data?
Today we are living in a world which is interconnected through various devices and the internet has made it possible for all of us to connect whenever we consider it necessary. These digital devices generate a huge amount of data on daily basis.
A/c to IBM :
“Every day we Create 2.5QuinTrillion Bytes of data. And it’s continuously increasing by the time I writing this blog and you are reading this blog.”
Math(One exabyte is one quintillion bytes (short scale).. 1 EB = 10006bytes = 1018bytes = 1000000000000000000B = 1000 petabytes = 1millionterabytes = 1billiongigabytes.) Source : wikipedia
Hopefully, you get the math.
- Next fact might surprise you, 90% of the world’s data today has been created in the last 2 years alone.
How this huge data is created
Do you use any of them Siri, Google assistant, Cortana, or Alexa? And do you know how they Work?
They work by recording your voice, uploading the recording to the cloud, and then processing it using the natural language processing(kind of AI for textual data) and sending back the answer.
After you’ve got your answer, you forget about the query. But your recorded voice, the text extracted from it, and the entire context of the back-and-forth conversations you had are still doing work in the service of the A.I. that makes virtual assistants work. Everything you say to your virtual assistant is funneled into the data-crunching A.I. engines and retained for analysis.

(1) Data through the Internet:
Over the internet, everything is at a fingertip distance, every time we turn to our search engines for answers we’re adding to the data stockpile.
- In 2015 More than 3.2 billion humans use the internet. Now I think it crossed 4 billion marks.
- Google now processes more than 40,000 searches every second (3.5 billion searches per day)!

(2) Social Media:
Nowadays most of the humans have a love affair with social media, I too among them.
- And many more
That certainly fuels the data creation rapidly.
(3) Communication data & Services data :
Data in the form of video and photo, audio and stockpiles of handwritten textual data. More or less All those sources produce the abundant amount of data which full fills the demand of AI.
Possibly Massive amounts of data are the main reason, AI is hot today.
You almost spend 3 minutes while reading this post. Though you spend time over here, you read this post, you too became a source to generate data through your device. And somehow someone utilizing this data to understand you better and this is how AI work.
Thanks to lots of data and AI, Companies now know exactly what you want, when you want and how you want it.
