Half a century of research has resulted in machines capable of beating the best human chess players and humanoid robots that can interact. But can machines really think? Is the mind just a complicated computer program? "Introducing Artificial Intelligence" focuses on the issues behind one of science's most difficult problems.
An introductory examination of artificial intelligence that discusses the latest developments in a field that links computer science, psychology, commerce, industry, and other social fields. Provides a broad historical perspective of AI, acquaints readers with principal topics such as cognition, knowledge engineering, problem inference, speech understanding, and perception, and highlights important AI products, such as expert systems, LISP, and smart robots. Provides a list of references and a select bibliography for readers requiring more detailed information.
Step into the future with AI The term "Artificial Intelligence" has been around since the 1950s, but a lot has changed since then. Today, AI is referenced in the news, books, movies, and TV shows, and the exact definition is often misinterpreted. Artificial Intelligence For Dummies provides a clear introduction to AI and how it’s being used today. Inside, you’ll get a clear overview of the technology, the common misconceptions surrounding it, and a fascinating look at its applications in everything from self-driving cars and drones to its contributions in the medical field. Learn about what AI has contributed to society Explore uses for AI in computer applications Discover the limits of what AI can do Find out about the history of AI The world of AI is fascinating—and this hands-on guide makes it more accessible than ever!
