What is Intelligence? Intelligence is the computational part of the ability to achieve goals in some world. There are many other definitions of intelligence, here we adopt the computational viewpoint.

Side Note – Turing Test Alan Turing defined artificial intelligence through the Turing Test If a human communicates with an entity over an opaque channel (that is, the human cannot see the entity) and the human cannot distinguish the entity from another human, then the entity is considered intelligent. This is a restrictive definition of AI, since it does not admit other goal-oriented behavior such as insect behavior as intelligence.

Observations Various degrees of intelligence occur in people, many animals, and some machines. AI does not have to confine itself to biologically observable methods – we can invent new, artificial techniques to make machines intelligent.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
