1. What is artificial intelligence?
AI can be described as an area of computer science that simulates human intelligence in machines. It’s about smart algorithms making decisions based on the available data.
Whether it’s Amazon’s Alexa or a self-driving car, the goal is to mimic human intelligence at lightning speed (and with a reduced rate of error).
2. What are intelligent agents?
An intelligent agent is an autonomous entity that leverages sensors to understand a situation and make decisions. It can also use actuators to perform both simple and complex tasks.
In the beginning, it might not be so great at performing a task, but it will improve over time. The Roomba vacuum cleaner is an excellent example of this.
