Forget far-away dreams of the future. Artificial intelligence is here now! 

Every time you use a smart device or some sort of slick technology—be it a smartwatch, smart speaker, security alarm, or even customer service chat box—you’re engaging with artificial intelligence (AI). If you’re curious about how AI is developed—or question whether AI is real—Artificial Intelligence For Dummies holds the answers you’re looking for. Starting with a basic definition of AI and explanations of data use, algorithms, special hardware, and more, this reference simplifies this complex topic for anyone who wants to understand what operates the devices we can’t live without.  

This book will help you: 

  • Separate the reality of artificial intelligence from the hype 
  • Know what artificial intelligence can accomplish and what its limits are 
  • Understand how AI speeds up data gathering and analysis to help you make informed decisions more quickly 
  • See how AI is being used in hardware applications like drones, robots, and vehicles 
  • Know where AI could be used in space, medicine, and communication fields sooner than you think 

Almost 80 percent of the devices you interact with every day depend on some sort of AI. And although you don’t need to understand AI to operate your smart speaker or interact with a bot, you’ll feel a little smarter—dare we say more intelligent—when you know what’s going on behind the scenes.  So don’t wait. Pick up this popular guide to unlock the secrets of AI today!

    AI For Dummies Cheat Sheet

    Artificial Intelligence (AI) is a technology that has grabbed a lot of attention in movies, books, products, and in a slew of other places. Often, vendors equate AI with smartness: You buy a smart device to obtain a device with an AI, even though smart devices sometimes are smart only in that they offer connectivity, not AI. Many products are hyped to contain AI that sometimes doesn’t even work. Some people, of course, want to grab headlines by telling mistruths or offering misconceptions about. This cheat sheet doesn't up all the misconceptions, mistruths, and hype for you, but it does offer you some interesting insights into why the mundane uses of AI are actually the places where you see AI most often. Yes, AI is being put to some amazing uses as well, but vendors often misrepresent these uses to the point that no one really knows how much is real and how much is the result of someone’s vivid imagination.
