What is artificial intelligence—and why do I need to know?
Artificial intelligence (AI) is the ability of machines to perform tasks that would normally require human intelligence. These new machine capabilities both inspire and unnerve: trucks that drive themselves, computer programs that develop drug therapies, software that writes news articles and composes music. But before you can imagine the possibilities, you need to know the basics.
You can start here. This Artificial Intelligence Primer will give you a foundational understanding of complex concepts. In it, we discuss where AI came from, how it got to where it is today, and where it’s likely going.
We are honored to accompany you in your effort to understand and harness AI. We hope that you will share the ideas, aspirations, and worries the information in the Primer evoke for you.
