What is Artificial Intelligence?

AI is intelligence demonstrated by machines, unlike natural intelligence displayed by humans and animals, which involves consciousness and emotionality. (Wikipedia)

AI makes it possible for machines to learn from experience, adjust to new inputs and perform human-like tasks. (SAS)

AI refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are programmed to think like humans and mimic their actions. (Investopedia)

AI is the ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term is frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, discover meaning, generalize, or learn from past experience. (Britannica)

Interesting Questions

Studying AI raises many interesting questions:

"Can computers think like humans?"

"Can computers be smarter than humans?"

"Can computers take over the world?"

Machines can understand verbal commands, recognize faces, drive cars, and play games better than us.

How long will it take before they walk among us?

Human Intelligence

About 70 000 years ago, something happened to the human brain.

The human brain started to develop Cognitive Intelligence:

  • Being able to understand a language
  • Being able to understand numbers
  • Being able to understand abstract thinking

To understand AI, it is important to also understand Human Intelligence.

Cognitive intelligence also created A Need for Numbers.

To understand AI, it is important to understand numbers and calculations.

Read More »


AI is a result of the human need for doing Complex Calculations.

Today, this can only be achieved by high speed calculations of numbers stored in a computer.

Robotic Bartenders on Quantum of the Seas - Royal Caribbean:

The Human Brain is Superior?

Can animals, birds, insects, or plants think?

Humans have bigger brains than animals.

Big dogs have bigger brains than small dogs. Are big dogs smarter?

Birds have very small brains, but they know they should not make children in the autumn, and they know when to fly to the south.

Bees have even smaller brains, but they know how to communicate about where to find honey.

Plants have no brain, but they know how to reproduce, and how to prepare for the winter.
