What is AI?

The phrase “artificial intelligence” refers to a specific branch of computer science that is concerned with replicating the thinking and decision-making abilities of the human brain. These programs do tasks that were previously considered too complex for a machine to handle, such as data categorisation, machine assembly or even playing games against humans. The field of AI is ever-evolving, as is the definition.

Many organisations have small data science teams focused on specific mission-critical and highly scalable problems. But there are a large number of business decisions that rely on experience and knowledge in addition to data.
