We definitely can and do call a bunch of if-else statements an AI, the specific field is called "Expert Systems". Whole programming languages dedicated to doing if-else more efficiently, e.g. prolog.

We also call a bunch of artificial neurons an AI, the subfield being "Deep Neural Networks".

AI is a scientific quality, not a religious belief.

Keyvan you are absolutely right.

Seems like you didn't get what I meant to say. Here is an example.

if status == "stupid":
    print("I am stupid")
    print("I am still stupid")

Will you call this an AI?🙄 In that sense EVERY SINGLE PROGRAM EVER WRITTEN WITH IF ELSE IS AN ai. 😑

Does that sounds right? I don't think so. 😖

I definitely understand your point but still when it does tasks, that a human would also do and seems in some sense human-like while doing so then it is a form of weak-AI, even if the code is as simpel as some if-else statements. See the code for ELIZA it is super simpel and still a form of AI.
