Artificial intelligence is the study of how to make computers do things that people are better at or would be better at if they could extend what they do to a World Wide Web-sized amount of data and not make mistakes.
AI can have two purposes. One is to use the power of computers to augment human thinking, just as we use motors to augment human or horse power. Robotics and expert systems are major branches of that. The other is to use a computer's artificial intelligence to understand how humans think. In a humanoid way. If you test your programs not merely by what they can accomplish, but how they accomplish it, they you're really doing cognitive science; you're using AI to understand the human mind."
