Boolean Data Type
This is a computer science term for a data type that has one of two possible values, usually true or false. Because computers operate in binary, this data type is often used to define computer logic. It is commonly seen to define search engine queries, and also supports a great deal of algorithmic programming and computing functionality that supports artificial intelligence (AI). The term is named after George Boole, a mid-19th century mathematician.
