About Artificial Intelligence
In an expanding field of research called "artificial intelligence," computers can be programmed to learn, to ask questions, to manipulate objects, and to comment on the answers they receive. However, the question of whether such machines are actually thinking and understanding, or merely simulating thinking and understanding, is debatable. This guide focuses more on current research in the field rather than the moral or ethical implications of artificial intelligence.
