Exploring AI

Capstone. Dec. 2023. 32p. Tr $31.32. ISBN 9781669074649.
Gr 6-8–Presenting a positive overview of Artificial Intelligence, computer scientist, educator, and software engineer Hadlett describes uses of AI that benefit humanity, specifically with medical, environmental, and archaeological applications. The roles of machine learning, data scientists, and computer engineers are described to demonstrate how AI has developed, how it is applied, and cases where it delivers answers both correct and incorrect. Readers are asked to imagine AI grading their homework and how that could help or hinder their learning, among other prompts that will challenge and engage curious minds. Elements, such as recommended internet sources and stock photos featuring a variety of ethnicities using computers, will quickly date this book. This text depicts AI as impressive and complicated; missing is any mention of significant socioeconomic impact, disinformation, or security concerns. Includes glossary, index, and three suggested websites.
VERDICT Quickly dated information that is laudatory and limited. For larger libraries seeking information on this quickly evolving topic.
