Some Note on Artificial Intelligence

Part of the Smart Innovation, Systems and Technologies book series (SIST,volume 151)


This introductory chapter discusses some basics of artificial intelligence and in particular some theoretical issues concerning neural networks that are still open problems and need further investigations. This is because, independently of the large use of neural networks in several fields, using neural networks and similar artificial intelligence techniques to solve problems of non-polynomial complexity is by itself a creative and intelligent problem, not rigidly tied to procedural methods and fully explainable on theoretical bases.
