When choosing the best artificial intelligence books, you should consider what it is you are trying to find out about artificial intelligence (AI) and any particular aspect of AI that interests you. You should begin by considering if you want a book with a general overview of AI or a more specific book that focuses on a particular type of AI programming such as neural networks. If you are trying to learn to program AI, then you should also consider a book with digital media that can help you learn. There are a number of artificial intelligence books available about specific applications of AI, such as robotics or game design.

Artificial intelligence books are books about the field of computer science and software programming known as AI. This is a field that seeks to design software programs and hardware configurations that can emulate or surpass human intelligence and its capacity to observe, identify, and react to the world around it. If you are interested in the best artificial intelligence books, you should consider what level of knowledge you already have about AI. For example, if you are just starting to learn about AI, then you should invest in a beginning book with a general overview of the technology involved.

On the other hand, if you already have some knowledge of AI, then you might look for more specific artificial intelligence books. These books are likely to focus on particular forms of AI being developed and used in the software industry today. You might consider looking for artificial intelligence books about neural networks, logic systems, or algorithms used in programming AI software.

If you are interested in learning to program AI, then you should consider artificial intelligence books that can provide you with lessons and tutorials on programming. These books often include digital media, either on a disc that comes with the book or through a download, which can provide you with additional information and computer files to help you with your programming. There are also numerous free tutorials and guides on the Internet that can help you learn about AI programming and computer science.

Some of the best artificial intelligence books for someone interested in the field, though not necessarily looking to get into it him or herself, are books on particular applications of AI. Robotics, for example, is a field that has often incorporated various principles and methodologies from AI programming. You can also find books about how AI has influenced various types of software development, such as voice recognition programs and game design. There are numerous textbooks and tutorials available to help you learn to program video game AI, and there are several AI game engines commercially available that are easy to use and quite powerful.

@MrsPramm - That's generally known as the Turing test and it's one of the goals that any intelligence would have to reach to be considered intelligence. The Turing test is basically that the computer program should be able to converse with a human in such a way that the human wouldn't be able to tell whether they were talking to a machine or a person.

I've never really thought about it, but I suppose that really is just cosmetic though. The average person might not know what kinds of things to talk about to really probe whether or not a computer is able to keep up the deception. And there is the question of what sentience actually is in the end. Just because something seems sentient doesn't actually mean that it is.

@clintflint - There was a movie brought out recently, that I thought was pretty good, about artificial intelligence, called "Her." It explored what it would be like to have an intelligent computer assistant who eventually developed a personality and wants and needs of her own.

I do think it was slightly unrealistic, in that it was set in what seemed to be the relatively near future and I don't think we are close to that kind of A.I. development yet.

I do think that we will eventually come up with something that at least simulates human intelligence so that the average person is fooled at some point though.

You might also be looking for novels that are written around the theme of A.I. I would have a look at some of the classics, like many of the works of Asimov. I'd also read some of the fantastic short science fiction based around A.I. The most memorable, in my opinion, is "I have No Mouth And I Must Scream" by Harlan Ellison. But I wouldn't read that one unless you don't mind horror, because it is very disturbing.
