"What is It?"


First Things First—What Exactly is AI?

While there are a lot of different ways to think about AI and a lot of different techniques to approach it, the key to machine intelligence is that it must be able to sense, reason, and act, then adapt based on experience.​​ 

Intelligent machines can...

Sense and recognize objects and concepts, reason and make a plan, recommend or initiate action, and adapt based on experience.

What would you do with AI?

We want your best idea!
