What is Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science wherein machines perform tasks like a human mind, such as learning and reasoning.

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, and so forth. The AI field has a long history, with many earlier breakthroughs, such as optical character recognition, now considered routine.

Why Artificial Intelligence?

AI is an attractive concept for many stakeholders in business, the sciences and government. On an economic basis, there is much appeal in having machines perform tasks that used to require human beings. An effective AI solution can "think" faster and process more information than any human brain. AI also has the potential to extend human abilities to places where people have trouble going, e.g. outer space or remote locations on earth where human expertise like medical knowledge might be useful.

HPE Artificial Intelligence

Success with AI invariably means bringing enough computing power to bear on a machine thinking task, but doing so within realistic resource constraints. HPE has a long, proven track record in providing solutions for AI that are at once high-performing and economically viable. HPE, in collaboration with partners like Intel, have devised High Performance Computing (HPC) solutions that deliver significant AI capabilities.
