Artificial Intelligence  

 "Cannot we let people be themselves, and enjoy life in their own way.  You are trying to make another you.  One's enough." – Ralph Waldo Emerson

                                                          






Defining AI and more:
The definition of Artificial Intelligence (in many dictionaries) is - The ability of a computer or other machine to perform those activities that are normally thought to require intelligence.  To understand Artificial Intelligence you need to understand what is meant by intelligence.

Machines Are Smarter

"The machines will convince us that they are conscious, that they have their own agenda worthy of our respect. We will come to believe that they are conscious much as we believe that of each other. More so than with our animal friends, we will empathize with their professed feelings and struggles because their minds will be based on the design of human thinking. They will embody human qualities and will claim to be human. And we’ll believe them." -Ray Kurzweil, The Age of Spiritual Machines
