What do the following tasks have in common–playing checkers, diagnosing bacterial infections, analyzing mass spectrograms of large organic molecules, and controlling factory automation machinery? The answer is that all these tasks have been successfully tacked by Artificial Intelligence, a computer discipline aimed at the problem of making computers smarter. We shall examine this important new field to try to understand its motivations, its methods, its accomplishments, and perhaps its future.
