Section I: What is Artificial Intelligence? (Annotated)
This section describes how researchers and practitioners define “Artificial Intelligence,” and the areas of AI research and application that are currently thriving. It proffers definitions of what AI is and is not, and describes some of the currently “hot” areas of AI Research. This section lays the groundwork for Section II, which elaborates on AI’s impacts and future in eight domains and Section III, which describes issues related to AI design and public policy and makes recommendations for encouraging AI innovation while protecting democratic values.
