[USPRwire, Sat Feb 06 2010] Artificial Intelligence is already here, according to Artificial Intelligence Around Us (ISBN 978-1-58909-666-4), an intriguing and insightful new book just released by Bookstand Publishing.
"Artificial intelligence is already upon us," says author and researcher Dr. Yuri Iserlis. "It not just something coming in the distant future. Every day, we enjoy the fruits of the work being done in this field, yet we are hardly aware of it. In fact, AI systems are everywhere around us, and many of these we encounter on a routine basis in our daily lives. This book is intended to give the reader a better understanding what is currently going on around us, and why."
Artificial Intelligence Around Us will be of interest to scientists and engineers as well as the lay reader and reviews not only the roots and principles of AI theory, but also presents various modern AI applications.
The book covers what kinds of Artificial Intelligent Systems exist now, how and where to use computer-generated imagery, why some Internet shoppers can find themselves in the position of Buridan’s donkey, and why the Internet, as a “global brain”, has transformed this huge planet Earth into a very small world. It also includes definitions for many industry terms and phrases, including “intelligent house”, “intelligent SCADA and control system”, “robot and intelligent agent”, “expert or TRIZ system”, “implanted people and pets”, “indigo children”, “artificial sensory organs”, “perception and communication systems”, “virtual and augmented realities”, “wiki”, and “six degrees of separation”, to name just a few.
Artificial Intelligence Around Us is based on the System Approach, which enables classification of existing Artificial Intelligence Systems from different points of view.
The author of the book, Yuri Iserlis, is an expert in artificial intelligence. He graduated from St-Petersburg Polytechnic State University (Russia) as mechanical engineer in 1961, and completed his postgraduate studies at St-Petersburg Marine Technical University in 1972. He has worked as designer, researcher, analyst and scientist in various industries, education and medicine. Dr. Iserlis founded and operated the company, Intellectual System, Inc., in St-Petersburg, Russia, from 1992 to 1996, where he developed some real-time industrial intellectual systems. In 1996, Dr. Iserlis immigrated in the USA, and in 2002 founded his latest company, Clever Ace, in San Jose, California. He has written and published more than seventy articles and books, which have been translated into many languages.
