What is artificial intelligence (AI)? Artificial intelligence is the simulation of human intelligence processes by machines, especially computer systems. Specific applications of AI include expert systems, natural language processing, speech recognition and machine vision.
At its core, AI reads human behavior to develop intelligent machines. Simply put, the foundational goal of AI is to design a technology that enables computer systems to work intelligently yet independently.
Simply put, AI allows organizations to make better decisions, improving core business processes by increasing both the speed and accuracy of strategic decision-making processes.
John McCarthy, a professor emeritus of computer science at Stanford, the man who coined the term “artificial intelligence” and subsequently went on to define the field for more than five decades.
