Artificial Intelligence Methods and Techniques

  • Andrzej Wodecki


Artificial intelligence (AI) is a fascinating concept whose origins can be found in the mid-twentieth century. It is an interdisciplinary field, integrating the efforts of logicians, mathematicians, computer scientists, psychologists and, more recently, managers and ethicists. Developing dynamically in the dimension of methods as well as technology, on the one hand, raises many hopes; on the other hand, it raises many fears and controversies (compare e.g. Bostrom 2014), particularly among investors who are interested in ventures with high development potential, yet they are afraid to invest in projects they simply do not understand.
