All your questions and worries about Al today - the who, what, where, when and WHY - answered by a computer scientist. It's here and it's not going away - AI is on everyone's mind, but many of us don't know what it is never mind what to think about it!

She introduces us to the history of the concept of machine learning, the pioneers in the field of AI and the amazing AI doing good in the world today.

The book includes case studies on fascinating topics, such as search-engine AI and exciting robotics, and answers questions, such as: What did AI start?; Why do we need AI?; What can AI DO?; What should AI do?; What is the future of AI?
