What Is Artificial Intelligence? 

Artificial intelligence or commonly known as AI is a term that blankets an entire branch of computer science focused on the thinking and learning capabilities of machines. Depending on the kind of data and information they are fed, the kind of training that they are put through, AI learns to make better decisions. This kind of ability to both learn and apply that learning to practical usage, is similar to the way human beings learn and apply that knowledge in the real world.
