"This is trespassing on nature, but scientists do that all the time." Did you know that artificial intelligence uses computer programs to mimic the human brains? That there are robots being developed that eat and digest food to power themselves just like we do? So, how far can science go in the quest to create truly intelligent technology? Science at the Edge: Artificial Intelligence looks at how advances in robotics, myoelectronics, and miniaturization have increased the ways in which artificial intelligence can be used. It explains the growth of expert systems that help human professionals do their jobs more quickly and efficiently. It also explains electroactive polymers, fuzzy logic, artificial life, and the ethical problems raised by artificial intelligence research. The Science at the Edge series is about development and theories in science that are both interesting and sometimes cause for concern. Each book in the series explains how the science was discovered, how it works, how it can help people, and why it may not be completely accepted by everyone.
