What Artificial Intelligence Is Not
Artificial intelligence is not one thing.
Artificial intelligence is not an algorithm. An algorithm is a set method for completing a task. Typically, we talk about algorithms that are implemented by a computer and written in computer code. But algorithms can also be written in math, like the quadratic formula or the equation to calculate area of a circle; or they can be written in natural language, like a chocolate chip cookie recipe or instructions for assembling a desk.
