1The Basics of Generative Artificial Intelligence

Understanding AI, Machine Learning, and Deep Learning

What Is AI

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that aims to create machines capable of mimicking human intelligence. Unlike traditional systems that follow explicit instructions, AI systems are designed to process information and make decisions or predictions based on the data they're given. The overarching goal of AI is to develop algorithms and models that allow machines to perform tasks—ranging from recognizing patterns to decision-making—that would usually require human cognition. AI's scope spans various technologies, including robotics, natural language processing (NLP), and expert systems. Its applications ...
