Artificial Intelligence: A New Phase to Teaching and Learning
But, what is this AI? We need to know about it – AI is the ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot (any automatically operated machine that replaces human effort) to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term is frequently applied to the project of developing systems (robot) endowed with the intellectual processes or characteristics of humans (though it may not resemble human beings in appearance or perform functions in a humanlike manner), such as the ability to reason, discover meaning, generalize, or learn from past experience.
Since the development of the digital computer in the 1940s, it has been demonstrated that computers can be programmed to carry out very complex tasks – such as discovering proofs for mathematical theorems or playing chess among others – with great proficiency. Still, despite continuing advances in computer processing speed and memory capacity, there are no programs that can match human flexibility over wider domains or in tasks requiring much everyday knowledge. On the other hand, some programs
