In computer science, artificial intelligence (AI) is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans. So far, computers have no intelligence: they can't learn (we'll get into machine learning in a minute), intuit, and process information that they haven't been programmed to process. They can mimic some cognitive function that humans associate with the human mind, but it's still mostly looking up data that's already been fed to it, which isn't the same being able to understand what something might be, that it's never seen/learned before. In other words, I can teach a child about basic genetics, and a little about dog breeds, and if they see a new breed that looks half way between two others, they can guess how that happened. No computer can. They can do tricks that make people think they can, but it isn't the same thing.
