What is Artificial Intelligence ?

Artificial intelligence (AI) is the field of computer science focused on creating systems that can mimic human intelligence and perform tasks like learning, problem-solving, language understanding, and decision-making. AI encompasses approaches like machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, computer vision, and robotics. Machine learning involves algorithms that enable computers to learn from data, while deep learning uses neural networks with multiple layers to process vast amounts of data. AI can be categorized into narrow AI, which performs specific tasks, and hypothetical general AI, which would possess human-like intelligence across a wide range of tasks. AI continues to evolve, with ongoing research aiming to improve capabilities and address ethical concerns.
