Though we spend our time discussing how to implement AI to improve businesses, we still get asked “What is AI?”. The quick answer is: a machine demonstrating intelligence. Then what’s intelligence? According to Wikipedia, it is the ability to convert data to information and to apply it. That is a pretty broad definition so this is not a very helpful answer. That definition makes pretty much any software intelligent which is wrong. AI is a sub-field of computer science not another name of it.
