Interest and research into Artificial Intelligence (AI) are rising, with significant breakthroughs such as new categories happening all the time. We are yet to see the point when AI transforms to superintelligence though. In this context, here is a look at the four main types of AI.

1. Limited memory machines

AI scientists develop algorithms to imitate the way our brain neurons connect. Deep learning improved various AI capabilities that were much better at absorbing the characteristics of their training data, but more importantly, improving over time. We see the applications in self-driving cars, games, etc.

2. Reactive AI

Early AI algorithms lacked memory and were reactional. The input and output could be similar. But newer models were able to yield great results. They are known as “reactional” or “reactive AI” and can even perform beyond human capacity in specific domains. 

3. Theory of mind

Theory of mind capability indicates the AI’s ability to attribute mental states to objects. Such AI infers the motives and intents of entities. Emotion AI aims to recognize, simulate, monitor, and respond appropriately to human emotion by analyzing data such as voice, image, etc. However, this capability is still not advanced enough to be an AI possessing theory of mind. The latter can vary its treatment of human beings based on the ability to detect their emotions and understand them.

4. Self-aware AI

Self-aware AI is on par with human intelligence and can mimic our emotions, desires, or needs. This is still a long way into completely self-aware AI. We still haven’t figured out our brain fully to create something fully aware of itself. 

Cloud Solutions with VEXXHOST

AI is evolving, and VEXXHOST’s cloud services are fully equipped to support Artificial Intelligence categories and mechanisms. Our clouds are based on OpenStack, making the environments free from licensing fees or vendor lock-ins. Private clouds are the preferred choice for many of our clients because of their highly scalable and secure nature.  

Take advantage of our limited-time deal just to set up a one-time, OpenStack-based private cloud deployment – at 50% off! The cloud will be running on the latest OpenStack release, Wallaby, which allows you to run Kubernetes and VMs in the same environment, and can be deployed in your own data centers with your hardware. Furthermore, all these will be deployed and tested in under a month!
