|Artificial intelligence: is the ability to recognize artificial systems, patterns and redundancies, to complete incomplete sequences, to re-formulate and solve problems, and to estimate probabilities. This is not an automation of human behavior, since such an automation could be a mechanical imitation. Rather, artificial systems are only used by humans to make decisions, when these systems have already made autonomous decisions._____________Annotation: The above characterizations of concepts are neither definitions nor exhausting presentations of problems related to them.

Brockman I 148
Artificial intelligence/Chris Anderson: Traditional software (…) follows deterministic trees of hard logic: lf this, do that.” But software that interacts with the physical world tends to work more like the physical world. That means dealing with noisy inputs (sensors or human behavior) and providing probabilistic, not deterministic, results. And that, in turn, means more gradient descent. >Universe/Anderson, >Local minimum/Anderson, >Neural networks/Anderson.
