What does AI represent today? 

Artificial intelligence, or AI, is the ability of a machine to imitate the intelligence of a human being.
Especilally on the collection and interpretation of data and statistics, the creation of mind maps stored on servers and machine learning.
GPS systems, driver-assistance systems and ABS systems, for example, all use AI.
To reproduce human cognition, AI-powered devices draw
