あらすじ・解説

This program includes an introduction read by the author.

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.

Start understanding AI right here!

As a high school computer science teacher, I have found that this book is doing what no other resource could do for me... make AI comprehendible in a way I can share and discuss with high school students. Mixed with some AI activities that I am getting from a secondary source, I am now on my way to creating an introductory AI unit that will help students understand better the world of AI and what is really happening as all of our appliances, cars, and the general world appear to get smarter around us.

clear, informative, reasonable, excellent

The reader gets a good overview (although I would assume at a pretty basic level), of where artificial intelligence and machine learning are positioned at present. The book is neither too easy not too hard. On the whole, hers is a sensible and somewhat deflationary (compared to many popular accounts) account of the powers of artificial intelligence and machine learning now and in the foreseeable future.

Clear, informative and entertaining

this is a wise book. it explains the major endeavours in AI in a clear and accessible way for non experts and non native speakers of English. At the same time the author gives an in depth view of the achievements, challenges and methods used in AI research, warning the reader about the risks involved. As a linguist I personally found this book amazing. The author has a realistic and well grounded view on AI, which is highly appreciated among too many sensational books on this topic.

An excellent analysis of modern AI

Mitchell does a fantastic job explaining where AI is and why. The examples on the book illustrate the problems researchers are facing and why these problems are so challenging.

I would strongly recommend this to anyone who is interested in AI and would like to understand how it works. After reading this I am both more optimistic and more concerned about what affects future AI may have on humanity.

Thanks to Sean Carroll for recommending this in his Mindscape podcast.

Brilliant book that goes to just the right depth

This book covers a very wide set of topics within AI, with some of the best examples and explanations of how machine learning and AI work that I have ever heard. The author explains the challenges and issues faced in AI and does so without sounding superior or dismissive.

This is truely the best overview of the current state of AI for people with an interest in the field that I have read.

I highly recommend it if you have some background in AI/ML or if you want more than a newspaper article depth on the topic.

Brilliant.
