Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field within computer science that is attempting to build enhanced intelligence into computer systems.
This book traces the history of the subject, from the early dreams of eighteenth-century (and earlier) pioneers to the more successful work of today's AI engineers. AI is becoming more and more a part of everyone's life. The technology is already embedded in face-recognizing cameras, speech-recognition software, Internet search engines, and health-care robots, among other applications. The book's many diagrams and easy-to-understand descriptions of AI programs will help the casual reader gain an understanding of how these and other AI systems actually work. Its thorough (but unobtrusive) end-of-chapter notes containing citations to important source materials will be of great use to AI scholars and researchers.
This book promises to be the definitive history of a field that has captivated the imaginations of scientists, philosophers, and writers for centuries.About the Authors
