Artificial Narrow Intelligence (ANI) refers to artificial intelligence that is designed to perform a single specific task or a set of related tasks, such as recognizing images or translating languages. ANI is also known as weak AI because it can only perform a narrow range of tasks and cannot exhibit general intelligence or adapt to new situations.

ANI systems are based on specific algorithms and are trained on large amounts of data related to their task. Examples of ANI systems include speech recognition, facial recognition, and recommendation algorithms used by online retailers.

ANI is widely used today and has significant implications for many fields, but it is important to note that ANI is not capable of general intelligence or human-level reasoning.
