What is Artificial Intelligence ( AI ) ? Big Picture …

Traditionally, AI (Artificial Intelligence) was developed as a simulation of intelligent human thought and thinking. I’ve taken your actions. This definition suffers from the fact that “intelligent human thinking” and “acting” are not defined. Furthermore man has become the yardstick of intelligence, although evolution has made many organisms with varying degrees of “intelligence that has brought forth this. In addition, we have long been surrounded in technology by “intelligent” systems, which are independent and efficient, but often differently than humans control our civilization.
When asked what “time” is, Einstein answered briefly: “Time is time, what a watch measures.” which is independent of humans and depends on measurable quantities of systems. For this purpose, we consider systems that more or less solve problems independently. Examples of such systems may include organisms, brains, robots, automobiles, smartphones or Accessories that we wear on our bodies (wearables).

Systems with However, different degrees of intelligence can also be found in factories (industry 4.0), traffic systems or energy systems (smart grids), who control themselves more or less independently and solve central supply problems. The degree of intelligence of such systems depends on the from the degree of independence, from the complexity of the problem to be solved problem and the efficiency of the problem solving process. There is therefore not “the” intelligence, but degrees of intelligence. Complexity and efficiency are measurable variables in computer science and engineering. An autonomous vehicle has then a degree of intelligence that depends on its ability to reach a specified destination independently and efficiently. There are already more or less autonomous vehicles. The degree of their independence is technically precisely defined. The ability of our smartphones to communicate with us is also changing.
