Artificial intelligence research is the research work carried out in the branch of science that deals with designing intelligent agents. Intelligent agents refer to those agents who perceive the environment and take such actions which aim at maximizing the probability of success. Hence, artificial agent research is a vital field of science as it deals with application of human intelligence in the field of robotics. The three main pillars of artificial intelligence are deduction, reasoning and problem solving. Most of the artificial intelligence problems are designed using these approaches.
A lot of different game types can also be solved using this approach as AI techniques provide optimum and probabilistic solutions to various games. Research work in this field has helped boost the knowledge base significantly with a lot of intelligent agents working in tandem with the environment. This is one of the most modern branches of science and is likely to benefit the human race in future.
