      In this post I am going to talk about three books about AI and Machine Learning that I find a must read for every lover of these topics. The experiences obtained from reading these books vary widely: one of them will talk about where artificial intelligence is heading, the different paths towards it, the possible dangers, and the ways to handle these dangers. I’ve read a couple of your books now, and what I want to know is this: Do you really think that artificial intelligence is a threat to the human race and could lead to our extinction? Yes, I do, but it also has the potential for enormous benefit.

      Uncovering the neural networks involved in intelligence has proved difficult because, unlike, say, memory or emotions, there isn't even a consensus as to what constitutes intelligence in the first.   Artificial intelligence (AI), the ability of a digital computer or computer-controlled robot to perform tasks commonly associated with intelligent beings. The term is frequently applied to the project of developing systems endowed with the intellectual processes characteristic of humans, such as the ability to reason, discover meaning, generalize, or learn from past .
