They include tasks such as driving trucks, translating languages, writing high school essays, creating art, analyzing forensic evidence, and even work as a surgeon.  Although some of these goals are predicted to happen over several decades, AI is concerned with  principles and algorithms that allow researchers to make such bold predictions.  Current methods focus on variants of deep learningsuch as convolutional nets, recurrent nets, autoencoders and adversarial networksas well as on the methods of probabilistic graphical models.
