This glossary explains the meaning of key words and phrases that information technology (IT) and business professionals use when discussing artificial intelligence and related software products. You can find additional definitions by visiting WhatIs.com or using the search box below.

  • N

    narrow AI (weak AI)

    Narrow AI is an application of artificial intelligence technologies to enable a high-functioning system that replicates – and perhaps surpasses -- human intelligence for a dedicated purpose.

  • natural language generation (NLG)

    Natural language generation (NLG) is the use of artificial intelligence (AI) programming to produce written or spoken narrative from a dataset.

  • natural language understanding (NLU)

    Natural language understanding (NLU) is a branch of artificial intelligence (AI) that works to use computers to understand input made in the form of sentences in text or speech format.

  • neural net processor

    A neural net processor is a CPU that takes the modeled workings of how a human brain operates onto a single chip. Neural net processors reduce the requirements for brain-like computer processing from whole networks of computers that excel in complex applications such as AI, machine learning or computer vision down to one multi-cored chip.

  • neurosynaptic chip (cognitive chip)

    A neurosynaptic chip, also known as a cognitive chip, is a computer processor that functions more like a biological brain than a typical CPU does.

  • O

    OpenAI

    OpenAI is a non-profit research company that aims to develop and direct artificial intelligence (AI) in ways that benefit humanity as a whole.

  • P

    predictive modeling

    Predictive modeling is a process that uses data mining and probability to forecast outcomes.

  • probabilistic robotics

    Probabilistic robotics, also called statistical robotics, is a field of robotics that involves the control and behavior of robots in environments subject to unforeseeable events. Because reality always involves uncertainty, probabilistic robotics may help robots to more effectively contend with real-world scenarios.

  • reinforcement learning

    Reinforcement learning is a training method based on rewarding desired behaviors and/or punishing undesired ones.

  • R

    recurrent neural networks

    Recurrent neural networks are a type of advanced neural network that uses directed cycles in memory in order to perform recurrent tasks on a body of data.

  • robo-advisor

    A robo-advisor is an artificial intelligence (AI) driven virtual financial advisor. Robo-advisors are a type of expert system optimized for financial services.

  • robot

    A robot is a machine designed to execute one or more tasks automatically with speed and precision. There are as many different types of robots as there are tasks for them to perform.

  • robot economy

    The robot economy is a scenario in which most of the labor required to sustain human life is automated.

  • Robot Land

    Robot Land is a proposed city for robotics research, development, testing and production in South Korea.

  • robotic surgery (robot-assisted surgery)

    Robotic surgery is the use of computer technologies working in conjunction with robot systems to perform medical procedures.
