Techpedia defines AI as
Artificial intelligence (AI) is an area of computer science that emphasizes the creation of intelligent machines that work and react like humans. Some of the activities computers with artificial intelligence are designed for include:
This 10 minute video, is a good guide to what AI is, and what it is not.
A career in AI is the next big thing, and it is less about learning programming languages (though those are important too) and more about being able to ‘teach’ computer systems to ‘think’ and make decisions. According to the computer science degree hub, this is what you need for a career in AI
Basic computer technology and math backgrounds form the backbone of most artificial intelligence programs. Entry level positions require at least a bachelor’s degree while positions entailing supervision, leadership or administrative roles frequently require master’s or doctoral degrees. Typical coursework involves study of:
Various level of math, including probability, statistics, algebra, calculus, logic and algorithms.
Bayesian networking or graphical modeling, including neural nets.
Physics, engineering and robotics.
Computer science, programming languages and coding.
Cognitive science theory.
