Definition of Artificial intelligence
1. AI is the study of how to make computers do things which at the moment people do better. This is ephemeral as it refers to the current state of computer science and it excludes a major area ; problems that cannot be solved well either by computers or by people at the moment.
2. AI is a field of study that encompasses computational techniques for performing tasks that apparently require intelligence when performed by humans.
3. AI is the branch of computer science that is concerned with the automation of intelligent behaviour. A I is based upon the principles of computer science namely data structures used in knowledge representation, the algorithms needed to apply that knowledge and the languages and programming techniques used in their implementation.
4. AI is the field of study that seeks to explain and emulate intelligent behaviour in terms of computational processes.
5. AI is about generating representations and procedures that automatically or autonomously solve problems heretofore solved by humans.
6. A I is the part of computer science concerned with designing intelligent computer systems, that is, computer systems that exhibit the characteristics we associate with intelligence in human behaviour such as understanding language, learning, reasoning and solving problems.
7. A I is the study of mental faculties through the use of computational models.
8. A I is the study of the computations that make it possible to perceive, reason, and act.
9. A I is the exciting new effort to make computers think machines with minds, in the full and literal sense.
10. AI is concerned with developing computer systems that can store knowledge and effectively use the knowledge to help solve problems and accomplish tasks. This brief statement sounds a lot like one of the commonly accepted goals in the education of humans. We want students to learn (gain knowledge) and to learn to use this knowledge to help solve problems and accomplish tasks.
