I went to the library and picked up a book on Artificial Intelligence. This book was written with the general reader in mind. It made no assumptions that you knew about AI, or that you were a technical person.
Some people in the AI field have made a lot of money in the commercial sector. If you really want to learn AI, you should first learn programming.
I have heard about the Turing Test before. You put a computer up against a human, and see whether a third observer can detect which one is the computer. However this book helped provide a lot more insight into the history and current attempts at winning the Turing Test.
More on this delicious book later.
