Artificial Intelligence Books to Read in 2019
Artificial Intelligence can be defined as the ability of machines to imitate human behavior and has come a long way – from nightmares and mad dreams to self-driving cars and automated factories. We bring you a list of artificial intelligence books that showcase rabid speculations, rich history, and intriguing (yet bizarre) theories from the world of artificial intelligence.
Here’s a list of seven artificial intelligence books you must read in 2019:
Introduction to Artificial Intelligence
This one’s a gem for those of you who are interested in A.I space and want to gain a deeper understanding of the same. This tops the list of artificial intelligence books because this book allows you to explore new spheres and develop a deeper understanding of the whole concept so that you know what’s coming next.
This classic provides a perfect introduction to the science of reasoning processes in computers based on more than twenty years of research. Machine learning, industrial automation, software techniques, automatic programming, psychological stimulation, predicate-calculus theorem are just some of the subjects that have been made easier to understand because of clear illustrations and diagrams.
