The Quest for Artificial Intelligence: A History of Ideas and Achievements PDF Free

Book Description

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a field of computer science that attempts to integrate advanced intelligence into computer systems.
This book traces the history of the subject, from the early dreams of pioneers in the 18th century (and before) to the most successful works of today’s artificial intelligence engineers. . AI is becoming more and more part of everyone’s life. The technology is already embedded in facial recognition cameras, speech recognition software, internet search engines, and healthcare robots, among other applications. The book contains many diagrams and easy-to-understand descriptions of AI programs that will help the casual reader understand how these and other AI systems work. Its detailed (but unobtrusive) footnotes contain important source citations that will be very useful to academics and AI researchers.
This book promises to be the ultimate history of a field that has captivated the imaginations of scientists, philosophers, and writers for centuries.
