Undergraduate and graduate programs, degrees, and admission information.
Artificial intelligence is a broad term used to describe a field of study in computing science where intelligence is demonstrated by non-sentient machines or computers. Typically this kind of intelligence is created through processes like machine learning, which uses models, algorithms, and various other forms of programming to allow machines and computers to mimic cognitive functions like learning or problem solving. Such tools, programs, and interfaces are some of the essential tools at the disposal of computing scientists to solve some of today’s most complex problems.
