    good introduction to begin understanding AI although I would think that it is slightly outdated

    This reads like a map of the meanings of and approaches to AI As someone with a pretty rookie, enthusiast only contact with the field, AI to me was sometimes simple enemies on video games, sometimes digital agents or assistants, sometimes another name for search algorythms and sometimes the big future singularity that could either save us all or go Skynet on us There s the famous divide between weak and strong AI, or AI vs the so called ASI , but, as this book shows, that s not actually that helpful Artificial Intelligence is a very real part of our world, and this book which introduces different fields of study that sprung from or gained a lot from AI research tries to explain it all, clearing up the distinctions between the multiple definitions of intelligence, conscience, robot and , surprisingly keeping itself short in the process Oh, but it also recommends additional reading in every one of the subjects it mentions The author doesn t shy away from expressing his enthusiasm for the field, as much as his disappointment with the academic infighting and lack of integration, but makes an effort to keep things facual, instead of speculative, until near the very end I loved it It IS from 2003, though, so I m sure a lot already happened, but now I feel I know what to look for.

    Very well written Clear language, excellent metaphors.Gives a good overview of the filed of AI as it was when the author wrote it.

    Interesting discussion not of AI theory, but of recent applications of AI software NASA used constraint based reasoning algorithms to schedule 10,000 engineering operations needed to ready the space shuttle for launch, saving almost a year of human work per launch The most distant man made object, the Voyager I spacecraft, is running the DEVISER AI scheduling program.The book also reviews expert systems, neural nets, and genetic algorithms AI tries to use the 007 principle , where programs know only what they need to know The biggest problem facing modern AI is known as the Frame problem figuring out what has changed in an image full of millions of pixels representing a scene from which humans make many decisions every day The Turing machine and Chinese Room scenario are discussed in the essay on how to define intelligence, whether artificial or not The essay on Cognitive Science has some interesting revelations about the similarities and differences between the human brain and the activities of software running on super computers.

    A good summary of artificial intelligence topics This book contains information detailing the inception of the field, and how each branch has developed, forked, and crossed disciplines Ideas such as problem solving machines, systems that obtain and store knowledge, simulated logic and decision making, robotic navigation and world domination, process evolution, and visual object identification are covered The source of the ideas are also explained, as most are functions found in nature and life The boundaries of artificial intelligence at consciousness are also described Yet even ideas from art and philosophy are considered with the science of simulating intellect with machines In summary, I found this book a great description of all the ways humans have sought to utilize humanities best features when inventing and creating technology.

    A decent overview of AI for a beginner Author notes the complexity of building an object with intelligence and shows that AI is not just about coding, but also psychology and biology This is particularly true when we try to emulate biological systems, even modelling the intelligence of an insect is complex Author explains that we should not try to recreate human intelligence and AI may take the form of an intelligence that is different from our preconceptions Author is optimistic that AI will be a partner to make our lives better and not a master where humans will be enslaved.

    Well written book to introduce the novice to the topic of artificial inteligence Written in a way that even the beginner can understand what is being said and is given the different ways of looking at artificial inteligence Good book even though the topic is complex and it is in audio format Very well read by the narrator who is able to read anything at all and make it sound fascinating and interesting.

    What it says on the tin a decent, basic introduction to the subject the state of play in the science at the point the book was published There s some potentially intriguing, if predictable, ideas about where the technology might lead Sometimes, the authorial presence is a little overbearing are readers really interested in his opinions

    It took me a while to get through this short book, but I appreciated doing so There are great references and topics, and the author really does a great job discussing large complicated ideas simply and conciselydefinitely a great read to delve into artificial intelligence.
