Commonsense Reasoning Wikipedia entry

I started a Wikipedia entry on Commonsense reasoning. I started it with the line:

"Commonsense reasoning is the branch of Artificial intelligence concerned with replicating human thinking."

I'm not sure everyone would agree with this definition--some might argue that it is the branch of AI concerned with particular techniques such as default reasoning with logic, in which case it is applicable to a wide range of problems beyond those people solve.

Or, one might choose to regard Commonsense Reasoning as concerned with solving the kinds of problems people solve--e.g. understanding sentences, recognizing scenes, interacting socially, etc.--but not necessarily in the same ways people solve them. I tend to fall more into this camp.
