Artificial Intelligence For Dummies 1st Edition Pdf Book Description:
You can hardly avoid encountering mentions of AI today. You see AI in the movies, in books, in the news, and online. AI is part of robots, self-driving cars, drones, medical systems, online shopping sites, and all sorts of other technologies that affect your daily life in so many ways. Many pundits are burying you in information (and disinformation) about AI, too. Some see AI as cute and fuzzy; others see it as a potential mass murderer of the human race. The problem with being so loaded down with information in so many ways is that you struggle to separate what’s real from what is simply the product of an overactive imagination. Much of the hype about AI originates from the excessive and unrealistic expectations of scientists, entrepreneurs, and businesspersons. Artificial Intelligence For Dummies is the book you need if you feel as if you really don’t know anything about a technology that purports to be an essential element of your life.
Using various media as a starting point, you might notice that most of the useful technologies are almost boring. Certainly, no one gushes over them. AI is like that: so ubiquitous as to be humdrum. You’re even using AI in some way today; in fact, you probably rely on AI in many different ways you just don’t notice it because it’s so mundane. Artificial Intelligence For Dummies makes you aware of these very real and essential uses of AI. A smart thermostat for your home may not sound very exciting, but it’s an incredibly practical use for a technology that has some people running for the hills in terror. Of course, Artificial Intelligence For Dummies also covers the really cool uses for AI. For example, you may not know there is a medical monitoring device that can actually predict when you might have a heart problem, but such a device exists. AI powers drones, drives cars, and makes all sorts of robots possible. You see AI used today in all sorts of space applications, and AI figures prominently in all the space adventures humans will have tomorrow. In contrast to many books on the topic, Artificial Intelligence For Dummies also tells you the truth about where and how AI can’t work. In fact, AI will never be able to engage in certain essential activities and tasks, and won’t be able to do other ones until far into the future. Some people try to tell you that these activities are possible for AI, but Artificial Intelligence For Dummies tells you why they can’t work, clearing away all the hype that has kept you in the dark about AI. One takeaway. from this book is that humans will always be important. In fact, if anything, AI makes humans even more important because AI helps humans excel in ways that you frankly might not be able to imagine.
