After mechanization, electrification, industrialization and digitalization, the next industrial revolution appears on the horizon. I call this next step intellification.
By digitalization, more and more activities and processes of the physical world are mapped into a virtual digital domain with increasing granularity. Due to this trend, more and more data about the physical world is stored and available for software. This allows machine learning algorithms to learn intelligent behavior based on the availability of this vast amount of real world data. This will lead to intelligent algorithms, which could even surpass the intelligence of humans. Programs and Processes will not only run automatically, but with intelligence. They will be able to observe their environment and to make intelligent decisions based on their learning history. Like the digitalization, also intellification will have a major impact on the way we work and live.
My name is Christoph Windheuser. I am passionate about Artificial Intelligence and Machine Learning. This site is my personal notebook which I make available for others diving into this fascinating topic! I have just started the page and I hope it will grow fast. So stay tuned. In the mean time, please visit my twitter page @Intellification. I will be happy if you leave me our thoughts via the comment button on the top of this page.
