What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial intelligence is the design, implementation, and use of programs, machines, and systems that show human intelligence, with its major activities being knowledge representation, reasoning, and learning. Although it is important to note there is no one agreed upon definition of artificial intelligence and it can vary according to the disciplines it works within. Artificial intelligence includes a number of important sub-fields:

  • Voice recognition
  • Image identification
  • Natural language processing
  • Expert systems
  • Neural networks
  • Planning
  • Robotics
  • Intelligent agents.
