artificial intelligence
Jump to user comments
artificial intelligence (AI) The subfield of computer
science concerned with the concepts and methods of symbolicinference by computer and symbolic knowledge representation
for use in making inferences. AI can be seen as an attempt to
model aspects of human thought on computers. It is also
sometimes defined as trying to solve by computer any problem
that a human can solve faster. The term was coined by
Stanford Professor John McCarthy, a leading AI researcher.
Examples of AI problems are computer vision (building a
system that can understand images as well as a human) and
natural language processing (building a system that can
understand and speak a human language as well as a human).
These may appear to be modular, but all attempts so far (1993)
to solve them have foundered on the amount of context
information and "intelligence" they seem to require.
