  AI artificial intelligence
AI is different from other areas of computer science in that there isn't any clear set of technologies which you need to learn.
AI is still a fairly small industry, and so far no clear standards have emerged in the sense that they have in programming, databases, Web design, etc. This may change in the future but at present it's a fairly accurate view of the world.
AI should be part of your "bag of tricks", but should never be used if it isn't in the best interests of your client.

Mental capabilities involving intelligence and reasoning, they postulate, will be induced to emerge from the interactions of these simple functions, highly mediated by the physical systems that are related to them, by a process of evolutionary machine learning or human engineered trial and error.
Seed AI is the concept of a computer program with artificial general intelligence examining its own design and making improvements to it, thereby making itself more intelligent and able to make further design upgrades in a recursively self improving process.
Some experts on seed AI such as Verner Vinge and Eliezer Yudkowsky believe that the recursive self-improvement process is powerful enough to produce what is known as "a hard take-off" or very rapid acceleration from human level intelligence to super human level intelligence.

 ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE (AI)   (Site not responding. Last check: 2007-10-10)
There are several reasons for making intelligent items, but two common goals are (1) to allow the item to cast spells to aid its user when he is otherwise occupied or incapacitated, and (2) to allow the item to cast spells which the user cannot.
Intelligent items differ from living creatures mainly because their primal drives (food, water, oxygen, safety, reproduction, etc.) are vastly changed: they (usually) do not need normal nourishment, do not need to breathe, and cannot reproduce.
In general, such AI's are incapable of learning or adapting to new situations except in the most rudimentary ways; nevertheless, this type of item is by far the most common intelligent item, because it is the easiest to construct and control.

 Introduction to artificial intelligence AI. Links999.
The next logical question is "Where do we want to go with artificial intelligence and for which purposes?" Putting aside the philosophical and social implications artificially intelligent machines might cause, we can look at the practical side of building machines with designed intelligence.
One practical use of artificial intelligence is space exploration.
Endowing these machines with a designed intelligence able to recognize, analyze and make decisions to a certain extent and geared to a specific purpose is simply a practical application of artificial intelligence and has little to do with moral or ethical issues.
