It is now a basic skill for a computer or machine to extract the body of human knowledge and interact with humans in a natural way. This has been achieved using new hierarchical mathematical models, large volumes of data for the training of these models, and different ways of incorporating prior knowledge into the models. Artificial intelligence is key to the smart analytics of larger volumes of data that cannot be processed by humans. Using artificial intelligence, Norway now has the opportunity to gain a competitive advantage by utilising the high-quality data and knowledge that we already possess.
Artificial intelligence and machine learning have resulted in some important breakthroughs. Algorithms based on artificial intelligence can now recognise text, speech, sounds, images, faces and much more with increasingly higher levels of accuracy.
