Artificial intelligence (AI) is the intelligence exhibited by machines or software. It is an academic field of study which studies the goal of creating intelligence. Major AI researchers and textbooks define this field as "the study and design of intelligent agents", where an intelligent agent is a system that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chances of success. John McCarthy, who coined the term in 1955, defines it as "the science and engineering of making intelligent machines". (Poole, Mackworth & Goebel 1998, 1).
"Millennials consist, depending on whom you ask, of people born from 1980 to 2000. To put it
more simply for them, since they grew up not having to do a lot of math in their heads, thanks to
computers, the group is made up mostly of teens and 20-somethings. At 80 million strong, they
are the biggest age grouping in American history" (Time Magazine, The Me Me Me Generation).
