This book explores the philosophical and mathematical foundations of artificial intelligence as well as intriguing hints of robots with greater intelligence and genuinely enormous speed and memory in the twenty-first century.
This book provides the background necessary for a thorough understanding of the enormous scientific potential represented by intelligent machines as well as their equally profound philosophical, economic, and social implications. It is generously illustrated and simple to understand for non-specialists.
With 23 pieces covering current topics in artificial intelligence, the structure is a hybrid of a monograph and an anthology. Experts in the field include Daniel Dennett, Douglas Hofstadter, and Marvin Minsky.
