Dear FOI,

Thank you for your email to me. I do apologize for the lack of clarity on that case. To define artifical intelligence I use the definition:

"Any infomation system which processes data, which is given by an external source, in such a way in which it can suggest and implement improvements upon the system in which it is operating with and learn from mistakes that are made"

Hope this clarifys my postion

Yours sincerely,

Jonathan Mantle

It's interesting to note that the experts with Network Rail who have been consulted on this have returned two definitions that are straight from Wikipedia! Have a look - they are word for word the first two sentences of Wikipedia's entry on artificial intelligence.
