Unpacking the AI suitcase
AI is not a single technology. Marvin Minsky, a pioneer in this field, describes AI as a “suitcase term.” It’s a concept that appears simple enough but is actually endlessly complex and packed with lots of other ideas, concepts, processes and problems.
AI is a branch of computer science and is defined as a system that makes autonomous decisions. As AI moves from Sci-Fi to everyday reality we will look at the terms and evolution involved in AI, and also discuss the moral and ethical concerns within this field.
