The first thing to do in order to understand the meaning of the artificial
term is to discover its etymological origin. In this case, we have to emphasize
that it is a word that derives from Latin, specifically, “artificialis”, which
is the result of the sum of three clearly defined components:
-The noun “ars, artis”, which can be translated as "art".
-The verb "facere", which is synonymous with "do".
-The suffix "-alis", which is indicated to indicate relationship or belonging.
artificial is an adjective that refers to what is manufactured by man:
that is, it does not come from nature. Artificial is also what is false, illusory or simulated.
For example: "The new private neighborhood has an artificial lagoon
suitable for practicing water sports", "The game will be played on an
artificial grass court", "I did not like the cake, it had too many
Many times the artificial works as a replacement for the natural from
a similarity or an imitation. An artificial lagoon, taking up
the first of the previous examples, is created by the human being,
who carries out an excavation and fills it with water. Instead, a natural lagoon
emerges spontaneously. The artificial turf, on the other hand,
is a product made with plastic or other material. The artificial
ingredients of a cake, meanwhile, imitate in flavor, color, aroma and
texture to others that come from nature.
It is known as artificial intelligence to the system that
created from the contributions of different sciences and disciplines, can
achieve problem solving through the paradigm of human intelligence. Artificial
intelligence assumes that a machine can "reason" logically and "interpret" the
context in which it operates, providing a specific and consistent response.
Precisely on that term we have to highlight the existence of a movie titled
"AI Artificial Intelligence". It was released in 2001 and is directed by Steven
Spielberg. It is framed within the science fiction genre and it tells how in the
future the human being coexists with robots called mecca. These, of course, have
a big difference with men: they have no feelings.
However, the conflict will occur when one of those robots is programmed to
love. At that moment, absolutely unexpected situations will take place.
We cannot forget that the aforementioned artificial intelligence has sparked
the interest of many film directors. Therefore, there are numerous films that
have revolved around it, in addition to the one already mentioned. Examples are
- “Her” (2013), directed by Spike Jonze.
-The "Matrix" saga, by the Wachowski brothers.
- "The bicentennial man" (1999), by Chris Columbus and starring Robbie Williams.
An artificial satellite, finally, is a device that has the
ability to orbit a planet, a star, an asteroid or another star for some
purpose. In maintaining an orbit, they resemble natural satellites, such as the moon.
