What Does AI Mean in a Text?

homeAI termsAI
AI means "Artificial Intelligence."

Artificial Intelligence (AI), refers to the development of computer systems able to perform tasks that usually require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and translation between languages.

There are several different types of AI:
  • Narrow AI: This type of AI is designed to perform a narrow task (e.g., facial recognition or internet searches) and can only operate under a limited set of constraints. It's the only AI in widespread use today.
  • General AI: More commonly referred to as "Artificial General Intelligence" (AGI), this refers to a type of AI that can understand, learn, adapt, and implement knowledge in a wide variety of tasks at the level of a human being. AGI is still largely theoretical.
  • Superintelligent AI: This refers to an AI that surpasses human intelligence in practically every field. Like AGI, this type of AI is still purely theoretical.
