Artificial Intelligence

by P. Andrew Karam
 

Since the time of the ancient Greeks and Chinese, humans have dreamed of machines that could imitate intelligent human behavior. No longer relegated to the realm of science fiction, the dream of artificial intelligence (Al) is a growing reality, in our world through software avatars and factory assembly lines, as well as in voice and facial recognition systems.

Overview

Since the time of the ancient Greeks and Chinese, humans have dreamed of machines that could imitate intelligent human behavior. No longer relegated to the realm of science fiction, the dream of artificial intelligence (Al) is a growing reality, in our world through software avatars and factory assembly lines, as well as in voice and facial recognition systems. Artificial Intelligence looks at the history of the human development of another form of intelligence on Earth, at some of the problems Al researchers face, and at some of the ethical issues facing Al advancements. Readers will learn about what is one of the most exciting and, potentially, most dangerous areas of research, one in which science, technology, and philosophy merge.

Science Foundations explores topics that are essential to the study of Earth and the physical, chemical, and biological sciences in an accessible and easy-to-read, yet detailed format. Each title thoroughly covers basic science concepts and then looks beyond them to teach readers about our world and the universe. From the tiniest quantum particle to the expansion of the universe, the volumes in this series provide excellent supplements to an extensive science curriculum.
