I started to answer this question by thinking about how I would test an artificial intelligence to see if it was sentient.

I used the internet to research how scientists are currently trying to test artificial intelligence. I found a lot of interesting information about the research which is being carried out into artificial intelligence.

Non-biological artificial intelligence is a computer program which has been specifically written to do a specific task.

Biological artificial intelligence is a computer program which was created using biological material such as DNA.

Hybrid artificial intelligence is a combination of both non-biological and biological artificial intelligence.

I also found out that scientists are trying to create either computer programs or biological computer programs which are as good as the human brain.

I found out that there are many different types of artificial intelligence. I found out that there are three different approaches to artificial intelligence: symbolic, connectionist and hybrid. I found out that there are many different types of artificial intelligence programs. I found out that there are many different[end]
