What is Artificial Intelligence

AI started in 1950 with totally different meaning as we think right now. To understand AI of 1950 first one needs to get some traction of Turing Test by Alan Turing.

The Turing test, developed by Alan Turing in 1950, is a test of a machine’s ability to exhibit intelligent behavior equivalent to, or indistinguishable from, that of a human.If a machine has enough intelligence such that the human interacting with it is not able to recognise whether the interaction is with a human or a machine then that machine has AI (Artificial intelligence).

1950’s Conclusion (which may not be true today) — Artificial Intelligence is replicating or copying human (more specifically natural ) intelligence to a machine (or a software).

When researches started on understanding verbal communication and written human languages and words, then the branch of these studies named as Natural Language Processing (NLP) in Artificial Intelligence.

Commuter generated voice, chat bots, Google Assistant, Apple Siri, Alexa and Google maps use NLP to understand human language and respond back to human.

Researches started on learning from Data (old data) and predicting based on data, then this field of study categorised as Predictive Analytics. Later it became part of data analytics, data science and machine learning

When research started on movement of humans while interacting with each other, this field of study categorised as Robotics.
