Artificial Intelligence is “The science and engineering of making intelligent machines, especially intelligent computer programs”.
Artificial Intelligence is a way of making a computer, a computer-controlled robot, or a software think intelligently, in the similar manner the intelligent humans think.
AI is accomplished by studying how human brain thinks, and how humans learn, decide, and work while trying to solve a problem, and then using the outcomes of this study as a basis of developing intelligent software and systems.
Artificial intelligence is based on disciplines such as Computer Science, Biology, Psychology, Linguistics, Mathematics, and Engineering. Majorly the development of AI has been due to computer functions associated with human intelligence, such as reasoning, learning, and problem solving.
