Artificial Intelligence (AI)

AI, or Artificial Intelligence, refers to the capability of machines or computer programs to perform tasks that typically require human intelligence. These tasks include things like learning, reasoning, problem-solving, understanding natural language, and even perceiving the environment.

In simpler terms, AI allows machines to mimic or simulate human-like thinking processes, enabling them to perform tasks that traditionally require human intelligence.
