7) Mention the difference between statistical AI and Classical AI? 

Statistical AI is more concerned with “inductive” thought like given a set of pattern, induce the trend etc.  While, classical AI, on the other hand, is more concerned with “ deductive” thought given as a set of constraints, deduce a conclusion etc.

8) What is alternate, artificial, compound and natural key? 

Alternate Key:  Excluding primary keys all candidate keys are known as Alternate Keys.

Artificial Key: If no obvious key either stands alone or compound is available, then the last resort is to, simply create a key, by assigning a number to each record or occurrence.  This is known as artificial key.

Compound Key:  When there is no single data element that uniquely defines the occurrence within a construct, then integrating multiple elements to create a unique identifier for the construct is known as Compound Key.

Natural Key:  Natural key is one of the data element that is stored within a construct, and which is utilized as the primary key.

9) What does a production rule consist of? 

The production rule comprises of a set of rule and a sequence of steps.

10) Which search method takes less memory? 

The “depth first search” method takes less memory.

Anything perceives its environment by sensors and acts upon an environment by effectors are known as Agent. Agent includes Robots, Programs, and Humans etc.

15)   What does Partial order or planning involve? 

In partial order planning , rather than searching over possible situation it involves searching over the space of possible plans.  The idea is to construct a plan piece by piece.

16)   What are the two different kinds of steps that we can take in constructing a plan? 

a)      Add an operator (action)

b)      Add an ordering constraint between operators 

17)   Which property is considered as not a desirable property of a logical rule-based system?

“Attachment” is considered as not a desirable property of a logical rule based system.

18)   What is Neural Network in Artificial Intelligence? 

In artificial intelligence, neural network is an emulation of a biological neural system, which receives the data, process the data and gives the output based on the algorithm and empirical data.

19)    When an algorithm is considered completed? 

An algorithm is said completed when it terminates with a solution when one exists.

In a planning system, the function of the third component is to detect when a solution to problem has been found.

22)   What is “Generality” in AI? 

Generality is the measure of ease with which the method can be adapted to different domains of application.

23)   What is a top-down parser? 

A top-down parser begins by hypothesizing a sentence and successively predicting lower level constituents until individual pre-terminal symbols are written.

24)   Mention the difference between breadth first search and best first search in artificial intelligence? 

These are the two strategies which are quite similar. In best first search, we expand the nodes in accordance with the evaluation function. While, in breadth first search a node is expanded in accordance to the cost function of the parent node.

25)   What are frames and scripts in “Artificial Intelligence”? 

Frames are a variant of semantic networks which is one of the popular ways of presenting non-procedural knowledge in an expert system. A frame which is an artificial data structure is used to divide knowledge into substructure by representing “stereotyped situations’. Scripts are similar to frames, except the values that fill the slots must be ordered.  Scripts are used in natural language understanding systems to organize a knowledge base in terms of the situation that the system should understand.

26) What are the different types of AI? 

  • Reactive Machines AI: Based on present actions, it cannot use previous experiences to form current decisions and simultaneously update their memory.
    Example: Deep Blue
  • Limited Memory AI: Used in self-driving cars. They detect the movement of vehicles around them constantly and add it to their memory.
  • Theory of Mind AI: Advanced AI that has the ability to understand emotions, people and other things in the real world.
  • Self Aware AI: AIs that posses human-like consciousness and reactions. Such machines have the ability to form self-driven actions.
  • Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI): General purpose AI, used in building virtual assistants like Siri.
  • Artificial General Intelligence (AGI): Also known as strong AI. An example is the Pillo robot that answers questions related to health.
  • Artificial Superhuman Intelligence (ASI): AI that possesses the ability to do everything that a human can do and more. An example is the Alpha 2 which is the first humanoid ASI robot. 

27) How is Machine Learning related to Artificial Intelligence?

Artificial Intelligence is a technique that enables machines to mimic human behavior. Whereas, Machine Learning is a subset of Artificial Intelligence. It is the science of getting computers to act by feeding them data and letting them learn a few tricks on their own, without being explicitly programmed to do so.

28) Explain the commonly used Artificial Neural Networks. 

Feedforward Neural Network

  • The simplest form of ANN, where the data or the input travels in one direction.
  • The data passes through the input nodes and exit on the output nodes. This neural network may or may not have the hidden layers.

Convolutional Neural Network

  • Here, input features are taken in batch wise like a filter. This will help the network to remember the images in parts and can compute the operations.
  • Mainly used for signal and image processing

Recurrent Neural Network(RNN) – Long Short Term Memory

  • Works on the principle of saving the output of a layer and feeding this back to the input to help in predicting the outcome of the layer.
  • Here, you let the neural network to work on the front propagation and remember what information it needs for later use
  • This way each neuron will remember some information it had in the previous time-step.


  • These are unsupervised learning models with an input layer, an output layer and one or more hidden layers connecting them.
  • The output layer has the same number of units as the input layer. Its purpose is to reconstruct its own inputs.
  • Typically for the purpose of dimensionality reduction and for learning generative models of data. 

29) Where To Find Specific Information On Search Bots?

30) What Is A Chatterbot?

chatterbot is a game.

31) What Is Relational Knowledge? 

It is a knowledge representation scheme in which facts are represented as a set of relations. For example knowledge about players can be represented using a relation called “player” having three fields: player name, height and weight. This form of knowledge representation provides weak inferential capabilities when used as standalone but are useful as an input for sophisticated inferential procedures.

32) What Is Inheritable Knowledge? 

It is a knowledge representation scheme in which knowledge is represented using objects, their attributes and corresponding value of the attributes. The relation between different objects is defined using a “isa” property. For example if two entities “Adult male” and “Person” are represented as objects then the relation between the two is that Adult male “isa” person.

For building a Bayes model in AI, three terms are required; they are one conditional probability and two unconditional probability.

39) While creating Bayesian Network what is the consequence between a node and its predecessors? 

While creating Bayesian Network, the consequence between a node and its predecessors is that a node can be conditionally independent of its predecessors.

40) To answer any query how the Bayesian network can be used? 

If a Bayesian Network is a representative of the joint distribution, then by summing all the relevant joint entries, it can solve any query.
