What is Artificial Intelligence (AI)?
5/8/2017 9:29:26 PM
The definition of AI is as follows:

Definition of artificial intelligence. 1 : a branch of computer science dealing with the simulation of intelligent behavior in computers. 2 : the capability of a machine to imitate intelligent human behavior. (Merriam-Webster).

Another way it has been defined (translated from an article in French on MBAMCI is, "At the origin of research work, artificial intelligence is based only on: mathematics, algorithms (i.e. programs that a computer executes via programming languages), and semantics (i.e. the study of language and the meaning of words).”

Note that in both definitions, human input is required. To date, autonomous thought by a computer is not possible. While much effort has been made, it is still very unlikely for it to ever happen, since science still is not even close to understanding consciousness.
