If human intelligence is the learned ability to gain from experience and the capacity to handle unfamiliar situations and manipulate abstract concepts while using experience and knowledge to change the world, then the concept of artificial intelligence (AI)—a huge advance in data processing and computing—would not easily compare with true human intelligence. In this Viewpoint, AI broadly encompasses machine learning, natural language processing, expert systems that emulate the decision making and reasoning of human experts, and other related applications.
