Can Artificial Intelligence (AI) Learn?

Is artificial intelligence (AI) capable of flexible learning? Humans have the ability to learn from their situations and environments. In order for AI to do the same, it must first completely understand the learning process. Unlike humans, AI has computational power that allows it to process copious amounts of data. As AI’s tasks continue to […]
