About The Book

“Artificial intelligence” requires teaching a computer how to approach different types of problems in a systematic way. The core of AI is the algorithms that the system uses to do things like identifying objects in an image, interpreting the meaning of text, or looking for patterns in data to spot fraud and other anomalies.  Mastering the core algorithms for search, image recognition, and other common tasks is essential to building good AI applications

Grokking Artificial Intelligence Algorithms uses illustrations, exercises, and jargon-free explanations to teach fundamental AI concepts.You’ll explore coding challenges like detect­ing bank fraud, creating artistic masterpieces, and setting a self-driving car in motion. All you need is the algebra you remember from high school math class and beginning programming skills. 

What You Will Learn
