Abstract

The domain of artificial intelligence (AI) progresses with extraordinary vicissitude. Whereas prior authors have divided AI into the two categories of analysis and synthesis, Raine and op den Akker [1] distinguish between four types of AI: that of appearance, function, simulation and interpretation. These subdomains of AI are differentiated by user goals, creator methodologies, and environmental constraints. In this paper, we focus on how analysis and synthesis could improve the subdomain of Functional-AI.
