Recommended books for Artificial Intelligence
In the world of blogs and video courses, the importance of books is coming down in the eyes of freshers who are tip-toeing in to the world of AI. Contrary to this opinion I believe that to understand a complex topic like artificial intelligence, one should read the classics!
I am a strong advocate of books because it doesn't try to dumb down concepts for us to understand rather It pushes us to understand the complexities behind crucial concepts.
One anecdote I can cite of is Chapter - 7 from "Machine Learning by Tom M Michelle". I was totally unaware about computational learning theory. After reading this topic in detail my understanding of Machine learning has further strengthened.
Here are the list of books which I really like -
1. Computer vision by Richard Szeliski
2. Deep learning book - Ian Goodfellow
3. Neural Networks - Simon Haykin
4. Machine Learning - Tom Michelle
5. Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach - Peter Norvig
These should be good enough to get you started.
Here are the list of books which can further enhance your perspective -
1. Godel Escher Bach
2. Super-intelligence 2.0
3. How to create a mind
