artificial intelligence

The characteristics of a machine designed to perform some of the perceptive or logical functions of the human organism in a manner appearing to be beyond the merely mechanical. AI is largely a matter of computer programming, in which stored records of past experience are made to modify future responses, but it also encompasses research into humanoid methods of data acquisition, the use of fuzzy logic and of artificial neural networks.
