Artificial intelligence, or AI, is a cross-disciplinary approach to understanding, modeling, and creating intelligence of various forms. It is a critical branch of cognitive science, and its influence is increasingly being felt in other areas, including the humanities. AI applications are transforming the way we interact with each other and with our environment, and work in artificially modeling intelligence is offering new insights into the human mind and revealing new forms mentality can take. This volume of original essays presents the state of the art in AI, surveying the foundations of the discipline, major theories of mental architecture, the principal areas of research, and extensions of AI such as artificial life. With a focus on theory rather than technical and applied issues, the volume will be valuable not only to people working in AI, but also to those in other disciplines wanting an authoritative and up-to-date introduction to the field.When was the last time you saw a movie about humankind suddenly going extinct (without warning and without being replaced by some other civilization)? ... cited as a model for ethical AI development, the Three Laws are as much a plot device as Asimova#39;s apositronic brain. ... its own intelligence, it has unhindered access to its own source code a it can rewrite itself to anything it wants itself to be.
