WEAK VS. NARROW AI
ARTIFICIAL NARROW INTELLIGENCE (ANI)
Weak Artificial Intelligence, also known as narrow AI, is AI that is focused on one narrow task or problem. All currently existing systems that are considered as Artificial Intelligence of any sort are weak AI at most.
Siri is a good example of narrow or weak AI. Siri operates within a limited predefined range, there is no genuine intelligence, no self-awareness. If you ask questions outside the limits of the application, don’t expect Siri to respond hastily.
Strong Artificial Intelligence is a machine that has consciousness, sentience, and mind. An Artificial General Intelligence is a hypothetical machine that is capable of applying intelligence to any problem, rather than just one specific problem. Such a machine is assumed to manifest behavior at least as skillful and flexible as humans do. The machine can actually think and perform tasks on its own just like a human being.
