Exact search for "AI" that excludes words that include the string "ai"?

Does anyone have any search tips for uncovering tasks that include the acronym AI without capturing all the words that include the string "ai"?

Hi transpolawyer,
Thanks for getting in touch.

It's only possible for a fuzzy match of words that would include "ai" even in the middle. You could make your search more specific like "ai " OR " ai" but I understand that may not catch everything.

Another option, maybe more practical if you have a Smart List search that finds these tasks, would be to remove other words that you'd want to exclude, for example:

name:AI AND NOT (name:mail OR name:aim)

I hope this helps a bit! Let me know if I can help with anything else along the way.
