Artificial intelligence is often wrongfully assumed to be a dystopian perception of robots who yearn to take control of the world. But, in reality, it’s a lot less harrowing. Artificial intelligence is essentially what Alan Turing called ‘thinking machines’.
Part of the confusion surrounding the term stems from the difficulty of classifying thinking, or intelligence, with regards to technological implementation. However, it’s enough to say that artificial intelligence is a machine or computer that has the power of human reasoning in some capacity.
