Introducing Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence is no longer the stuff of science fiction.
Half a century of research has resulted in machines capable of beating the best human chess players, and humanoid robots which are able to walk and interact with us. But how similar is this 'intelligence' to our own? Can machines really think? Is the mind just a complicated computer program?
Addressing major issues in the design of intelligent machines, such as consciousness and environment, and covering everything from the influential groundwork of Alan Turing to the cutting-edge robots of today, Introducing Artificial Intelligence is a uniquely accessible illustrated introduction to this fascinating area of science.

    The big questions of “mental processes” tackled by AI are bound to a number of disciplines – psychology, philosophy linguistics and neuroscience. AI’s goal of constructing machinery is underpinned by logic, mathematics and computer science. A significant discovery in any one of these disciplines could impact on the development of AI.

    The AI problem is one of the hardest science has ever undertaken.” AI has one foot in science and one in engineering.
  • Daria Zaytsevahas quoted5 years ago
    What sets AI apart from other attempts to understand the mechanisms behind human and animal cognition is that AI aims to gain understanding by building working models. Through the synthetic construction of working models, AI can test and develop theories of intelligent action
