The applications of ArtificialIntelligence lie all around us and affect all aspects of our lives. The results of ArtificialIntelligence have been invaluable to biologists, psychologists, and linguists in helping to understand the processes of memory, learning, and language from a fresh angle. As a concept, ArtificialIntelligence has fuelled and sharpened the philosophical debates concerning the nature of the mind, intelligence, and the uniqueness of human beings. ArtificialIntelligence: A VeryShort Introduction considers the history of ArtificialIntelligence, its successes, its limitations, and its future goals. It also reviews the philosophical and technological challenges raised by ArtificialIntelligence, considering whether programs could ever be really intelligent, creative, or even conscious.
