Episode 3 is here, and we cover some of the basics - what is an artificial intelligence, and what are the current areas being researched. We talked about differing approaches to A.I. Whether the goal should be creating a human-like intelligence, or a ration intelligence, for instance, or whether the thought process is important, or only the result (action). We also discuss some of the major fields of research inside artificial intelligence: natural language processing, computer vision, knowledge representation, knowledge processing, machine learning and robotics.
I hope you enjoy the episode! I
