Chapter 1. Introduction to Artificial Intelligence

In this chapter, we are going to discuss the concept of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and how it's applied in the real world. We spend a significant portion of our everyday life interacting with smart systems. It can be in the form of searching for something on the internet, Biometric face recognition, or converting spoken words to text. Artificial Intelligence is at the heart of all this and it's becoming an important part of our modern lifestyle. All these system are complex real-world applications and Artificial Intelligence solves these problems with mathematics and algorithms. During the course of this book, we will learn the fundamental principles that are used to build such applications and then implement them as well. Our overarching goal is to enable you to take up new and challenging Artificial Intelligence problems that you might encounter in your everyday life.

By the end of this chapter, you will know:

  • What is AI and why do we need to study it?

  • Applications of AI

  • Branches of AI

  • Turing test

  • Rational agents

  • General Problem Solvers

  • Building an intelligent agent

  • Installing Python 3 on various operating systems

  • Installing the necessary Python packages
