Scope of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence has a very wide scope. Some of its applications are given below:

Theorem Proving:

It is formal system wherein logic lends itself to automation. A large variety of problems can be solved by using logical axioms and treating the problem instances as theorems to be proved. Theorem proving has devised a powerful solution heuristics and reduced the complexity of the search space.

Natural Language Processing (NLP):

It is a subfield of artificial intelligence which deals with the methods of communicating with a computer in one’s natural language.

Expert Systems:

An expert system is a computer system that emulates the decision-making ability of a human expert. Expert Systems are used in professional areas like Diagnosis (Medicine), construction and simulation.
Example: MYCIN


According to Newell and Simon, the essential basis for human problem solving is to systematically explore a space of problem states. This space is called State Space. So, games can generate an extremely large search space. So, we need powerful techniques to search for our solution in this space. These techniques are called heuristics. So, Artificial Intelligence helps in Gaming.


According to the Robot Institute of America (RIA), a robot is a reprogrammable, multifunctional, manipulator that is designed to move materials, parts, tools or specialized devices through various programmed motions for the performance of a variety of tasks.
