Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence is the branch of computer science that deals with using computers to simulate human thinking. It s concerned with building computer programs that can solve problems creatively, rather than simply working through the steps of a solution designed by the programmer.

One of the main problems of artificial intelligence (AI) is how to represent knowledge in the computer in a form such that it can be used rather than merely reproduced. A computer that tells you the call number of a library book is not displaying artificial intelligence; it is merely echoing back what was put into it. Artificial intelligence would come into play if the computer used its knowledge base to make generalizations about the library’s holdings or construct bibliographies on selected subjects.
