What Does Narrow Artificial Intelligence (Narrow AI) Mean?
Narrow artificial intelligence (narrow AI) is a specific type of artificial intelligence in which a learning algorithm is designed to perform a single task, and any knowledge gained from performing that task will not automatically be applied to other tasks.
Unlike general artificial intelligence, which seeks to mimic complex thought processes, narrow AI is designed to successfully complete a single task without human assistance. Popular applications for narrow AI include language translation and image recognition.
Most AI applications in use today can be categorized as being narrow AI. Narrow AI may also be referred to as weak AI.
