From The Free On-line Dictionary of Computing (30 December 2018) :

  artificial intelligence
  AI
  
      (AI) The subfield of computer
     science concerned with the concepts and methods of symbolic
     inference by computer and symbolic knowledge representation
     for use in making inferences.  AI can be seen as an attempt to
     model aspects of human thought on computers.  It is also
     sometimes defined as trying to solve by computer any problem
     that a human can solve faster.  The term was coined by
     Stanford Professor John McCarthy, a leading AI researcher.
  
     Examples of AI problems are computer vision (building a
     system that can understand images as well as a human) and
     natural language processing (building a system that can
     understand and speak a human language as well as a human).
     These may appear to be modular, but all attempts so far (1993)
     to solve them have foundered on the amount of context
     information and "intelligence" they seem to require.
  
     The term is often used as a selling point, e.g. to describe
     programming that drives the behaviour of computer characters
     in a game.  This is often no more intelligent than "Kill any
     humans you see; keep walking; avoid solid objects; duck if a
     human with a gun can see you".
  
     See also AI-complete, neats vs. scruffies, neural
     network, genetic programming, fuzzy computing,
     artificial life.

  ai
  
      The country code for Anguilla.
  
     (1999-01-27)
  

From Easton's 1897 Bible Dictionary :

  Ai
     ruins. (1.) One of the royal cities of the Canaanites (Josh.
     10:1; Gen. 12:8; 13:3). It was the scene of Joshua's defeat, and
     afterwards of his victory. It was the second Canaanite city
     taken by Israel (Josh. 7:2-5; 8:1-29). It lay rebuilt and
     inhibited by the Benjamites (Ezra 2:28; Neh. 7:32; 11:31). It
     lay to the east of Bethel, "beside Beth-aven." The spot which is
     most probably the site of this ancient city is Haiyan, 2 miles
     east from Bethel. It lay up the Wady Suweinit, a steep, rugged
     valley, extending from the Jordan valley to Bethel.
     
       (2.) A city in the Ammonite territory (Jer. 49:3). Some have
     thought that the proper reading of the word is Ar (Isa. 15:1).
     

From Hitchcock's Bible Names Dictionary (late 1800's) :

  Ai, or Hai, mass; heap
  

From Bouvier's Law Dictionary, Revised 6th Ed (1856) :

  AIR. That fluid transparent substance which surrounds our globe.
       2. No property can be had in the air it belongs equally to all men,
  being indispensable to their existence. To poison or materially to change
  the air, to the annoyance of the public, is a nuisance. Cro. Cr. 610; 2 Ld.
  Raym 1163; I Burr. 333; 1 Str. 686 Hawk. B. 1, c. 75, s. 10; Dane's Ab.
  Index h.t. But this must be understood with this qualification, that no one
  has a right to use the air over another man's land, in such a manner as to
  be injurious to him. See 4 Campb. 219; Bowy. Mod. Civ. Law, 62; 4 Bouv.
  Inst. n. 36 1; Grot. Droit de la Guerre et de la Paix, liv. 2, c. 2, Sec. 3,
  note, 3 et 4.
       3. It is the right of the proprietor of an estate to enjoy the light
  and air that will come to him, and, in general, no one has a right to
  deprive him of them; but sometimes in building, a man opens windows over his
  neighbor's ground, and the latter, desirous of building on his own ground,
  necessarily stops the windows already built, and deprives the first builder
  of light and air; this he has the right to do, unless the windows are
  ancient lights, (q.v.) or the proprietor has acquired a right by grant or
  prescription to have such windows open. See Crabb on R. P. Sec. 444 to 479
  and Plan. Vide Nuisance.
