Boolean Operators and AI? I Am Confused

I may be totally off base on this, so jump in and straighten me out. These days, you don’t see any news, portals, or periodicals that don’t push how wonderful artificial intelligence (AI) is. But I am not going to get into a debate on the benefits and drawbacks of AI right now.
