Artificial Intelligence is all around us – in the news, in our homes, in our phones, in our cars – everywhere. While AI is becoming more ubiquitous in our daily lives, many people don’t have a fair understanding of what AI is and how it works. This book aims to address this gap in knowledge by giving readers a pocket guide to the world of AI.


·         Provides an accessible and easy-to-understand guide to AI for non-technical readers

·         Covers basic concepts in AI, their history, and the inspirations that helped them to materialize

·         Describes what AI is, where to find it, how scientists try to evaluate it, and the main limitations for AI

·         Explores the most popular AI techniques in a very readable and comprehensible way, using anecdotes and simple examples

This book is accessible for all. It will be valuable to teachers who wish to enrich their classes with some interesting and popular topics; sales managers and business analysts who wish to better understand the IT world; and finally, politicians and journalists who take part in debates on latest technologies.

Jędrzej Osiński earned a PhD in Artificial Intelligence and has published 14 scientific papers to date as well as co-authoring two books. He has over ten years of experience working in IT companies of different sizes, domains (web, telecom, banking, e-learning), organisation structure and locations (Poland, Ireland, UK).
