A gentle introduction to the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) using the Raspberry Pi as the computing platform. Most of the major AI topics will be explored, including expert systems, machine learning both shallow and deep, fuzzy logic control, and more!AI in action will be demonstrated using the Python language on the Raspberry Pi. The Prolog language will also be introduced and used to demonstrate fundamental AI concepts. In addition, the Wolfram language will be used as part of the deep machine learning demonstrations.A series of projects will walk readers through how to implement AI concepts with the Raspberry Pi. Minimal expense is needed for the projects as only a few sensors and actuators will be required. Beginners and hobbyists can jump right in to creating AI projects with the Raspberry PI using this book.What You'll LearnWhat AI is and―as importantly―what it is notInference and expert systemsMachine learning both shallow and deepFuzzy logic and how to apply to an actual control systemWhen AI might be appropriate to include in a systemConstraints and limitations of the Raspberry Pi AI implementationWho This Book Is ForThe book will be focused on the hobbyist/maker community, who may have heard about AI and wish to learn more about it. It may also be of interest to engineers involved in designing autonomous systems and wanting to gain an education in fundamental AI concepts. Finally, it could be of interest to non-technical readers who are vaguely aware of AI and wish to understand what it is and how it might affect their lives.
