Artificial Intelligence by Neil Gordon, Ph.D.
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the field of computer science that attempts to imitate human cognitive
behavior in computers. In problem solving, AI reflects the approach, knowledge, viewpoints and biases
of the human. Previously, computers have been used to solve only algorithmic problemsówrite a
formula, give the computer complete data and the computer calculates the answer.
But all problems do not lend themselves to algorithmic solutions. AI programs differ from more
conventional computer applications because they deal with non-numeric (qualitative) data and can
function with uncertain or incomplete information.
