Artificial Intelligence Fundamentals

The Foundations & History of Intelligent Machines

About the Book

This book is right for you if you're looking to learn the fundamentals of Artificial Intelligence (AI). The book assumes you know next to nothing about AI so it delves into the foundations and the history of artificial intelligence.

The book also touches the applications of AI, and at the end tells you how to continue your journey to building your own intelligent machines. Inside the book, a clear overview of the technology is also provided, the similarities and differences between machines and humans, and a fascinating look at AI applications like self-driving cars.

I'm someone who builds intelligent machines. Although I'm a computer scientist my focus is building artificial intelligence, that is building machines that think the way we do.

Finally it's important for you to understand that ever since I was a tiny child I’ve loved the idea of intelligent machines, robots, computers and other things that would help us or even try to kill us. I love them even in those moments when people said they were trying to kill us.

Now let me start teaching you with this book all you need to know about artificial intelligence.

I am multi-talented. As a computer engineer and a computer scientist, I have over 15 years of teaching experience in software development and computer hardware architecture. I am the CEO of Ojula Technology Innovations, a book publishing company. I co-publish my books with Charles H. Johnson who also offers technical assistance to my company. In the last few years I have helped the IT industry develop various useful programs on Windows, MacOS and PLCs (programmable logic controllers).

I always build solutions from scratch and go as far as modifying open source software to meet my client’s needs. As an embedded systems expert, I design embedded Systems that optimize performance and cost against complex requirements. I leverage Stratify OS (a POSIX like RTOS for micro-controllers) to quickly and cost-effectively develop complex firmware applications in Python and C/C++ languages. I work with a dedicated team of Python programmers who look into specific automation problems and proffer solutions to them.
