What exactly is Artificial Intelligence and how does it work?

Artificial Intelligence makes use of deep learning and machine learning, while trying to resolve an issue logically in its own programming language. It is essentially teaching a machine to complete tasks that are usually completed by a human. The concept was developed in the 1950's when scientists began to understand further the functions of the human brain.
