artificial intelligence

Artificial Intelligence or AI as the name suggests refers to machines capable of thinking or demonstrating human-like intelligence as opposed to natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals. The scientific community refers to AI as any system that can account for its environment before taking any action, to maximise its chances of achieving its goals, whatever they may be. AI is a blanket term that is also used for describing artificial machines that can mimic learning capabilities found in humans, aka cognitive functions. AI is used in a variety of fields like web-search engines, recommendation systems that recommend content based on your interests, voice assistants that can react to and understand human language, self-driving cars or even automated decision-making in strategic games like chess. The academic study of artificial intelligence began in 1956 and has evolved over the years as the technology advanced. The traditional goals of any research in the field consider reasoning capabilities, the use of knowledge in making decisions, the ability to plan and execute an action, natural language processing, perception, and the ability to manipulate physical objects. The end goal is to create machines that can simulate general intelligence to solve a variety of problems, in the same capacity as humans. More
