Introduction to AI
The question of whether computers are capable of thought has long been a subject of controversy.
The notion that intelligence can be possessed by a man-made machine seems far-fetched.
Today, the branch of computer science known as artificial intelligence
is an area of much research. Breakthroughs in artificial intelligence have consistently revolutionized
the entire computer industry and the understanding of our own thinking processes. However, there
is still much to overcome. While one studies artificial intelligence, one must ponder these
questions at some time: "If a computer can think, then is it alive? And if a machine possesses
intelligence, am I truly any greater than a machine?"
