What is AI?

Simply put, AI is the creation of software that imitates human behaviors and capabilities. Key elements include:

  • Machine learning - This is often the foundation for an AI system, and is the way we "teach" a computer model to make prediction and draw conclusions from data.
  • Anomaly detection - The capability to automatically detect errors or unusual activity in a system.
  • Computer vision - The capability of software to interpret the world visually through cameras, video, and images.
  • Natural language processing - The capability for a computer to interpret written or spoken language, and respond in kind.
  • Conversational AI - The capability of a software "agent" to participate in a conversation.
