From recognizing faces to passing as human, the goal of artificial intelligence is to enable systems and devices to think, talk, act—and maybe feel—just like we do.
In a rush? Here are the 5 biggest artificial intelligence takeaways.
It’s a term that carries a lot of weight, but but many of us might not know what AI really is. See the main points from this section as well as relevant reading here.

5 Biggest Takeaways
The goal of AI development is to create machines that can do what people do.
Scientists are trying to develop computers that can learn and remember with even more ease and agility than the human brain.
Big data has makes great AI possible.
Gains in processing power have made it possible for computers to perceive patterns and connections within huge datasets that are essentially invisible to humans.
Today’s AIs don’t think—they are merely powerful predictors.
Today’s AIs are not able to reason outside the scope of their designated problem. They analyze data and make impressive inferences—if they are told to do so.
Past AIs failed because the systems weren’t constrained enough.
Past researchers have overpromised and underdelivered on capability. A lack of focus in the AIs' tasks played a role in their failure.
AI is so new that much of the work is theoretical.
Experts speculate on what the capabilities of AI could be if the right technological breakthroughs take place.
