Basics Of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) means different things to different people. Some believe that AI is synonymous with any form of intelligence achieved by nonliving systems; they maintain that it is not important if this intelligent behavior is not arrived at via the same mechanisms on which humans rely. For others, AI systems must be able to mimic human intelligence. 

No one would argue with the premise that to study AI or to implement AI systems, it is helpful if we first understand how humans accomplish intelligent behavior; that is, we must understand activities that are deemed intelligent in an intellectual, scientific, psychological, and technical sense. 

For example, if we want to build a robot capable of walking like a human, then we must first understand the process of walking from each of those perspectives; people, however, do not accomplish locomotion by constantly stating and following a prescribed set of formal rules that explain how to take steps. In fact, the more human experts are asked to explain how they achieve their level of performance in any discipline or endeavor, the more they are likely to fail. For example, when Israeli fighter pilots were asked to explain their prowess for flying, their performance actually declined.

Expert performance stems not from constant, conscious analysis but from the subconscious levels of the mind. Imagine trying to drive on an expressway during rush hour and needing to consciously weigh each vehicle-control decision.

Consider the story of the professor of mechanics and the unicyclist. If the professor is asked to cite principles of mechanics as he attempts to ride the unicycle and bases his success on the unicycle on knowing those principles, he is doomed to failure. Likewise, if the unicyclist attempts to learn the laws of mechanics and apply them while he performs his craft, he, too, is destined for failure and perhaps a tragic accident. 

Root of Artificial Intelligence
The point is, human skill and expertise in many disciplines seems to be developed and stored in the subconscious, rather than being available upon explicit request from memory or first principles.
What is AI?

AI is not natural but is man-made. the term artificial means synthetic (i.e., man-made) and generally has a negative connotation as being a lesser form of a real thing. Artificial objects are often superior to real or natural objects, however. Consider, for example, an artificial flower, an object made of silk and wire and arranged to resemble a bud or blossom.

Top 20 ultimate ETL Questions really good for interviews

How to print/display the first line of a file?  there are many ways to do this. However the easiest way to display the first line of a file is using the [head] command.  $> head -1 file. Txt no prize in guessing that if you specify [head -2] then it would print first 2 records of the file.  another way can be by using [sed] command. [sed] is a very powerful text editor which can be used for various text manipulation purposes like this.  $> sed '2,$ d' file. Txt how does the above command work?  The 'd' parameter basically tells [sed] to delete all the records from display from line 2 to last line of the file (last line is represented by $ symbol). Of course it does not actually delete those lines from the file, it just does not display those lines in standard output screen. So you only see the remaining line which is the 1st line.  how to print/display the last line of a file?  the easiest way is to use the [tail] command.  $> tail -1 file. Txt if you want to do it using…

The unique helpful SAN architecture simplified one

Storage Area Networks (SANs)

A SAN is connected behind the servers. SANs provide block-level access to shared data storage. Block level access refers to the specific blocks of data on a storage device as opposed to file level access. One file will contain several blocks. 

SANs provide high availability and robust business continuity for critical data environments. SANs are typically switched fabric architectures using Fibre Channel (FC) for connectivity. The term switched fabric refers to each storage unit being connected to each server via multiple SAN switches also called SAN directors which provide redundancy within the paths to the storage units. This provides additional paths for communications and eliminates one central switch as a single point of failure.Ethernet has many advantages similar to Fibre Channel for supporting SANs. Some of these include high speed, support of a switched fabric topology, widespread interoperability, and a large set of management tools. In a storage ne…
