For example, AI stands for Artificial Intelligence. AI is a branch of computer science/informatics which deals with the automation of intelligent procedures. The term AI is yet to be clearly defined, as there already is a lack of a precise definition of intelligence. Nevertheless, AI is often used in research and development (R&D). In general, AI describes the attempt to emulate human-like intelligence. In other words, to program a computer in order to solve problems independently.
