ar·ti·fi·cial in·tel·li·gence

1. a branch of computer science in which attempts are made to replicate human intellectual functions. One application is the development of computer programs for diagnosis. Such programs are often based on epidemiologic analysis of data in large numbers of medical records;
2. a machine that replicates human intellectual functions, although no machine (that is, computer) can do this yet.

artificial intelligence (AI)

a system that makes it possible for a machine to perform functions similar to those performed by human intelligence, such as learning, reasoning, self-correcting, and adapting. Computer technology produces many instruments and systems that mimic and surpass some human capabilities, such as speed of calculations, correlating, sensing, and deducing.

artificial intelligence

Informatics The study of intelligence using ideas and methods of computation whose central goal is to understand the principles that make intelligence possible; a format of computer programming that attempts to simulate human 'intelligence.' See Bayesian network, Expert system, Machine learning, Neural networking, Symbolic reasoning.

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.

artificial intelligence (A-I),

n a system that makes it possible for a machine to perform functions similar to human intelligence. Computer technology produces many systems and functions that mimic and surpass some human capabilities, such as the ability to play chess.
