Artificial intelligence (AI) is
|“||a branch of computer science that studies how to develop computers that equal or exceed human performance on complex intellectual tasks.||”|
|“||[t]he capability of a device to perform functions that are normally associated with human intelligence such as reasoning, learning, and self-improvement.||”|
|“|| the collection of computations that at any time make it possible to assist users to perceive, reason, and act. Since it is computations that make up AI, the functions of perceiving, reasoning, and acting can be accomplished under the control of the computational device (e.g., computers or robotics) in question.
AI at a minimum includes
AI attempts to emulate the results of human reasoning by organizing and manipulating factual and heuristic knowledge. Areas of AI activity include expert systems, natural language understanding, speech recognition, vision, and robotics.
