Artificial intelligence definition

The term "artificial intelligence" represents a collection of software, logic, computing and philosophical disciplines that aim to make computers perform functions once thought to be exclusively human, e.g., perceiving meaning in written or spoken language, learning, recognising facial expressions, etc. The AI field has a long history, with many earlier breakthroughs such as optical character recognition now considered routine.
