What is Artificial Intelligence (AI) ?
Artificial Intelligence (AI) is the area of computer science focusing on creating machines that can engage in behaviors that humans consider intelligent..

About Artificial Intelligence
The ability to create intelligent machines has

intrigued humans since ancient times, and today with computers and 50 years of research into AI programming techniques, the dream of smart machines is becoming a reality. Researchers are creating systems which can mimic human thought, understand speech, beat the best human chess player, and countless other feats never before possible

Purposes of Artificial Intelligence
Methods of artificial intelligence used as a

means in gaining greater insight into the basic mechanisms of perception, memory and thought. To make machines become intelligent. AI has spawned many great successes such as advances in problem solving algorithms, search algorithms, knowledge representation, machine learning, object oriented programming, natural language understanding and expert systems.

Advantages Of A.I.
It is more easier to use AI to do required

detailed instructions for users. AI is used for military benefits In turn, there will be less injuries and stress to human beings. AI can execute certain tasks faster than a human can. AI can perform certain tasks better than many or even most people.

Disadvantages Of A.I.
There is a lot of controversy about the

ultimate similarity between human cognitive functioning and computer functioning. It can be very expensive

Future Implications A.I.
 AI began as an attempt to answer some of the most fundamental

questions about human existence by understanding the nature of intelligence, but it has grown into a scientific and technological field affecting many aspects of commerce and society.  Even as AI technology becomes integrated into the fabric of everyday life, AI researchers remain focused on the grand challenges of automating intelligence. Work is progressing on developing systems that converse in natural language, that perceive and respond to their surroundings, and that encode and provide useful access to all of human knowledge and expertise. The pursuit of the ultimate goals of AI -- the design of intelligent artifacts; understanding of human intelligence; abstract understanding of intelligence (possibly superhuman) -- continues to have practical consequences in the form of new industries, enhanced functionality for existing systems, increased productivity in general, and improvements in the quality of life. But the ultimate promises of AI are still decades away, and the necessary advances in knowledge and technology will require a sustained fundamental research effort.

Examples of The Use of A.I.
Credit card providers, telephone companies,

mortgage lenders, banks, and the U.S. Government employ AI systems to detect fraud and expedite financial transactions, with daily transaction volumes in the billions. These systems first use learning algorithms to construct profiles of customer usage patterns, and then use the resulting profiles to detect unusual patterns and take the appropriate action (e.g., disable the credit card). Such automated oversight of financial transactions is an important component in achieving a viable basis for electronic commerce.

A True Work Of A.I
Over the past couple decades much work, and

progress, has been made in the pursuit of creating artificial minds and lifelike humanoid movement. Researchers from many different nations have experimented with recreating realistic human characteristics - with some success. Honda's humanoid robot ASIMO leads the way in mobility, the 120 cm high robot has already mastered the complicated balancing act required when walking, running and jumping and it can safely navigate around random objects. ASIMO is also capable of recognising people and faces and greets people accordingly, he can also move where indicated and recognise his name. A remarkable machine no doubt, but ASIMO is not truly intelligent.
