Are you smarter than you were at age 5?
How do you know?
Well, for one thing, you have gained experience over time.
And hopefully that experience has turned into some sort of insight.
Allowed you to learn from your past.
In order to not repeat the same mistakes.
And you have built up an arsenal of knowledge.
From a variety of input sources.
So yes, you brain is more developed now.
So is your pool of knowledge.
And hopefully you have learned to reason.
Why is one choice better than another?
Well I can remember a similar occurrence in the past where I did this which resulted in that.
That result was not the best so perhaps I should deviate from this particular action.
An example, when I was young I wondered what it would be like to touch the hot stove burner. It resulted in my finger being burned. That caused pain. Based on that memory I will choose not to repeat that by checking if the oven knob is turned on, sense if the burner is glowing or generating heat, if not I can touch it.
You have learned to alter a specific behavior based on a results of a past experience.
I believe you can do the same with a computer.
A system which can tap an enormous database, to view linear actions, see their outcomes, base current decisions on those metrics, to alter current behavior and iterate the process over time.
To fine tune the process, build more knowledge base and better predict future outcomes, automatically in real time.
And that's what I think of when people say the word Artificial Intelligence.
