Come and meet the smartest artificial intelligences of the past, present, and future. This cutting-edge book introduces pioneering AI machines such as Watson and Sophia, and lifts the lid on how they work. Meet machines that look like humans, pit your wits against AlphaGo and Dee...p Blue, and seek advice from Recommendation Engine. With The Code Room, there is even achance to imagine what it is like to be an AI yourself. There's nothing smarter than that! Basher Science Mini: Artificial Intelligence explains what AI is and how computers are aiding humans in everyday tasks. AI is already shaping the world and computers will be taking on more and more human-type tasks in the future. But there's no need to be afraid of AI. It is here to help, not takeover, despite what you might see in sci fi films. Perfect for home or school, Basher's highly original books make difficult concepts tangible, understandable, and even lovable. Chatty first-person text and stylish, contemporary character illustrations give a voice, personality, and story to each topic--a brilliant way to communicate science.
