What is AI?
AI (Artificial Intelligence) refers to the simulation of human intelligence in machines that are designed to think and act like humans. It involves creating algorithms and computer systems that can perform tasks that typically require human intelligence, such as visual perception, speech recognition, decision-making, and language translation.
