Artificial intelligence (AI) is a branch of computer science that deals with intelligent behavior, learning, and adaptation in machines.
In many strong AI supporters’ opinion, artificial consciousness is considered as the holy grail of artificial intelligence.
Many practical applications are dependent on artificial neural networks — networks that pattern their organization in mimicry of a brain's neurons, which have been found to excel in pattern recognition.

The philosophy of AI As is often the case with a nascent science, Artificial Intelligence ('AI') has enough confusing questions at the fundamental, conceptual level to warrant philosophical as well as scientific work.
An artificial neural network (ANN), also called a simulated neural network (SNN) (but the term neural network (NN) is grounded in biology and refers to very real, highly complex plexus), is an interconnected group of artificial neurons that uses a mathematical or computational model for information processing based on a connectionist approach to computation.

 Artificial Intelligence: Encyclopedia of Management
The term "intelligence" is difficult to define, and has been the subject of heated debate by philosophers, educators, and psychologists for ages.
Intelligence includes the capacity to learn, maintain a large storehouse of knowledge, utilize commonsense reasoning, apply analytical abilities, discern relationships between facts, communicate ideas to others and understand communications from others, and perceive and make sense of the world around us.
Thus, artificial intelligence systems are computer programs that exhibit one or more of these behaviors.

 Thoughts on Artificial Intelligence
Although there is no clear definition of AI (not even of intelligence), it can be described as the attempt to build machines that think and act like humans, that are able to learn and to use their knowledge to solve problems on their own.
Thus, an artificial mind would also need the 'ability' to die, as well as that to mate and replicate, otherwise the resulting being would be beyond any recognition by a human mind.
This naturally leads to the idea of a higher principle of Intelligence, that human intelligence is only one manifestation of (in order to distinguish between the traditional human intelligence and this new idea of a more general concept, I want to spell the latter with a capital I: Intelligence).
