Artificial Intelligence is also called Machine Learning. We have a concept that machines just do what they are programmed or made to do. We don’t consider that they can learn from their mistakes like humans do or at least you would hope so.
Computers have been seen as very fast adding machines able to crunch numbers and large amounts of data at great speed. Machines generally have a very fixed purpose, a car does one thing very well you don’t expect your car to go off and do your shopping for you, or at least not yet.
However before we dive into the nitty-gritty of AI we have to accept that machines are not inherently intelligent it is more that we use them intelligently. They are no match for the human brain, not even close but they can do things, repetitive things much better than us.
