Artificial Intelligence (AI) has come a long way since its origins in the 1950s, with exponential growth in recent decades transforming various aspects of our lives. As AI continues to evolve, it promises to revolutionize automation, data analysis, and intelligent decision-making. In a recent roundtable discussion organized by the Faculty of Engineering (FI) at UNAM, experts highlighted the diverse applications of AI, including medicine, the automotive industry, customer service, and data management. This article explores the evolution of AI, its current applications, and the potential impact it may have on various industries.

The Evolution of AI

AI has its roots in the quest to create machines capable of thinking and making decisions like humans. The 1980s witnessed a significant breakthrough with the development of artificial neural networks inspired by the human brain. These networks could learn and recognize complex patterns in vast datasets, laying the groundwork for machine learning as a core discipline within AI.
