Summary

In this chapter, we discussed:

  • What AI is all about and why we need to study it
  • Various applications and branches of AI
  • What the Turing test is and how it's conducted
  • How to make machines think like humans
  • The concept of rational agents and how they should be designed
  • General Problem Solver (GPS) and how to solve a problem using GPS
  • How to develop an intelligent agent using machine learning
  • Different types of machine learning models

We also went through how to install Python 3 on various operating systems, and how to install the necessary packages required to build AI applications. We discussed how to use these packages to load data that's available in scikit-learn.

In the next chapter, we will learn about supervised learning and how to build models for classification and regression.
