Artificial Intelligence (AI) fascinates, challenges and disturbs us. There are many voices in society that predict radical modifications which will come as a consequence of AI — a possible apocalypse or Eden in the world. But, just a few people truly understand what AI is, what it can do and what its limits are.
Understanding Artificial Intelligence explains, through a simple narrative and amusing illustrations, how AI works. It’s composed for a non-specialist reader, adolescent or adult, who’s interested in AI but is missing the key to knowing how it works. The author demystifies the production of this so-called”intelligent” machine and clarifies the different methods that are used in AI. It presents new possibilities offered by algorithms and the difficulties that researchers, users and engineers face when building and using such algorithms. Each chapter allows the reader to discover a new aspect of AI and to become fully aware of the possibilities provided by this rich field.
