No recent scientific enterprise has proved as alluring, terrifying, and filled with extravagant promise and frustrating setbacks as artificial intelligence. The award-winning author Melanie Mitchell, a leading computer scientist, now reveals its turbulent history and the recent surge of apparent successes, grand hopes, and emerging fears that surround AI. In Artificial Intelligence, Mitchell turns to the most urgent questions concerning AI today: How intelligent—really—are the best AI programs? How do they work? What can they actually do, and when do they fail? How humanlike do we expect them to become, and how soon do we need to worry about them surpassing us? Along the way, she introduces the dominant methods of modern AI and machine learning, describing cutting-edge AI programs, their human inventors, and the historical lines of thought that led to recent achievements. She meets with fellow experts like Douglas Hofstadter, the cognitive scientist and Pulitzer Prize–winning author of the modern classic Gödel, Escher, Bach, who explains why he is “terrified” about the future of AI. She explores the profound disconnect between the hype and the actual achievements in AI, providing a clear sense of what the field has accomplished and how much farther it has to go. Interweaving stories about the science and the people behind it, Artificial Intelligence brims with clear-sighted, captivating, and approachable accounts of the most interesting and provocative modern work in AI, flavored with Mitchell’s humor and personal observations. This frank, lively book will prove an indispensable guide to understanding today’s AI, its quest for “human-level” intelligence, and its impacts on all of our futures.

Aimed at the computer-literate person wishing to find out about the reality of exploiting the promise of artificial intelligence (AI) in practical, maintainable software systems, this text tries to avoid the hype usually associated with the subject. Instead, it presents the realities, the problems, the current state of the art, and future directions.
In this book Dr. Amit Ray describes the principles, algorithms and frameworks for incorporating compassion, kindness and empathy in machine. This is a milestone book on Artificial Intelligence. Compassionate AI address the issues for creating solutions for some of the challenges the humanity is facing today, like the need for compassionate care-giving, helping physically and mentally challenged people, reducing human pain and diseases, stopping nuclear warfare, preventing mass destruction weapons, tackling terrorism and stopping the exploitation of innocent citizens by monster governments through digital surveillance. The book also talks about compassionate AI for precision medicine, new drug discovery, education, and legal system. Dr. Ray explained the DeepCompassion algorithms, five design principles and eleven key behavioral principle of compassionate AI systems. The book also explained several compassionate AI projects. Compassionate AI is the best practical guide for AI students, researchers, entrepreneurs, business leaders looking to get true value from the adoption of compassion in machine learning technology.
The development of Artificial Intelligence has brought with it many new questions, not least the legal, moral and ethical implications of the technology. This book not only looks at present-day answers to questions but offers much original material. Some of the material may seem controversial at present. Nevertheless, as the questions posed are tested in real life, the author believes many of the ideas may soon become the accepted wisdom. This book will interest those studying Information Technology, Artificial Intelligence, Cognitive Science, as well as Philosophy and Jurisprudence. In addition, the ideas are highly relevant to legal professionals who are likely to be involved in the implications of computer technology, now and in the future.
This volume is the first in a series which deals with the challenge of AI issues, gives updates of AI methods and applications, and promotes high quality new ideas, techniques and methodologies in AI. This volume contains articles by 38 specialists in various AI subfields covering theoretical and application issues.
This book constitutes the refereed proceedings of the 10th Australian Joint Conference on Artificial Intelligence, AI'97, held in Perth, Australia, in November/December 1997. The volume presents 48 revised full papers selected from a total of 143 submissions. Also included are three keynote talks and one invited paper. The book is divided into topical sections on constraint satisfaction and scheduling, computer vision, distributed AI, evolutionary computing, knowledge-based systems, knowledge representation and reasoning, learning and machine vision, machine learning, NLP and user modeling, neural networks, robotics and machine recognition, and temporal qualitative reasoning.
Paradigms of AI Programming is the first text to teach advanced Common Lisp techniques in the context of building major AI systems. By reconstructing authentic, complex AI programs using state-of-the-art Common Lisp, the book teaches students and professionals how to build and debug robust practical programs, while demonstrating superior programming style and important AI concepts. The author strongly emphasizes the practical performance issues involved in writing real working programs of significant size. Chapters on troubleshooting and efficiency are included, along with a discussion of the fundamentals of object-oriented programming and a description of the main CLOS functions. This volume is an excellent text for a course on AI programming, a useful supplement for general AI courses and an indispensable reference for the professional programmer.
