Uncover the different types of AI

When it comes to scientific developments, artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most advanced and mind-boggling creations to have ever existed. 

However, as artificial intelligence’s abilities and advancements continue to grow, many people are threatened about the potential of an AI takeover. As a result, business leaders and members of the general public in South Africa feel that AI research is on the verge of being completely realised in the near future. 

Understanding the numerous artificial intelligence systems that are now in use, as well as those that are theoretically possible, may help to provide a more accurate picture of the present and future capabilities of artificial intelligence. If you want to learn more about this, keep reading here in Vula Telematix!

Artificial Superintelligence (ASI)

The development of ASI, the most sophisticated sort of artificial intelligence presently feasible, will almost certainly be the apex of AI research in the future of South Africa. Apart from that, ASI will outperform humans in every element of their profession owing to their significantly greater memory, quicker data processing and analytical capabilities, and capacity to make judgments. 

When describing the outcome of AGI and ASI research, the word ‘singularity’ is often employed. Such powerful technologies, on the other hand, have the potential to endanger human life or, at the very least, our way of life if misused. 

Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)

Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is the ability of an AI agent to learn, observe, understand, and act like a human. A significant reduction in the amount of time necessary for training will be realised as a result of these systems’ capacity to gain multiple skills on their own, as well as to form connections and generalisations across domains.

Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI)

An “artificial narrow intelligence” (ANI) is a kind of AI complicated and capable system yet produced. It refers to AI systems that are capable of doing a single task on their own, with human-like abilities. Since they can only execute the tasks for which they were created, these robots have a somewhat limited range of skills. They have systems that are classed as reactive and limited memory artificial intelligence.


Self-aware AI is a kind of artificial intelligence that has evolved to be so comparable to the human brain that it has gained the capacity to recognise its existence. In the end, the ultimate objective of all artificial intelligence research has always been and will continue to be the creation of this kind of artificial intelligence, which is still many decades away from becoming a reality. 

We, in Vula Telematix, believe that AI of this kind will not only be able to recognise and elicit emotional responses from those with whom it interacts, but it will also have its own set of emotions as well as its desires, beliefs, and, potentially, objectives.

Theory of Mind

Theory of mind AI is being developed by researchers presently. This type of artificial intelligence can understand the needs, feelings, beliefs, and cognitive processes of those it interacts with.
