The field of AI focuses on getting computers to do things that would be considered intelligent if done by a human, like solve problems and complete tasks. But it’s a complicated subject, and it takes a lot of work to learn how to create intelligent machines. The good news is, there are plenty of free resources that can help you understand the fundamentals. From primers to cutting-edge research, these Free AI books cover everything from the basics of machine learning to how to build complex AI systems.
A great introduction to the theory behind machine learning, this book explains basic concepts through real-world examples, and introduces important learning algorithms that will make you more effective when working with data. It’s designed for readers with little or no prior experience in artificial intelligence, making it a great resource for anyone looking to start learning the fundamentals of this exciting technology.
This book offers a comprehensive and thorough exploration of deep neural networks, covering all of the major algorithms in this area of artificial intelligence. It starts with a discussion of the mathematical ideas that underlie deep neural networks, and then moves to practical applications, showing readers how to write Python code to implement these models. In addition, the book is continuously extended, meaning that the content will always be up-to-date.
Written as a marketing feature from the software maker Peltarion, this book aims to give business leaders a better understanding of what AI is and how they can use it to change their business for the better. While the e-book’s development was a marketing effort, its message is one that many organizations need to hear.
While the debate on whether AI is good or bad rages on, it’s important to learn more about the technology in order to develop an informed perspective. This short book is a great place to start, as it presents the technical challenges of creating ethical AI and makes a case for various strategies for solving them. The author also makes the topic easy to understand, with the option of more mathematical explanations available for those who want them.
With its illustrative example of Sammy the squirrel and his quest to become richer than all his forest friends, this charming book is a fun way to learn the principles of AI. The crudely rendered illustrations — which were created using AI — are simple enough to allow readers of all ages to grasp the main points without getting lost in the details. It’s a valuable lesson that will help readers to avoid the trap of over-complicated technology and to instead see AI as a tool for positive social change.
