Artificial intelligence is the innovation of science. It is the simulation or integration of human intelligence into machines. Such machines and robots are programmed to perform actions that are many like humans. This term is also applicable in a way that these machines have such traits as humans e.g. problem-solving skills, learning, and result orientation thinking. Artificial intelligence helps machines learn and analyze unstructured data on a very large scale. This enables the users to handle more complex data with the help of AI. There are several books on AI which also help the audience to better understand this technology and its way of working in daily life tasks. These are the top 10 artificial intelligence books for beginners that will help you learn about artificial intelligence (AI).

Many tech giants and other industries are already doing investments in AI to better equip themselves.
2. Artificial Intelligence for Kids (Tinker Toddlers)
By Dr. Dhhot
This book has been focused on kids to equip and sharpen them to better understand the use of AI technology. Dr.Dhoot introduced the basic concepts of AI; its types and their meanings. Different approaches have been used to better deliver the idea of AI. Flamboyant, beautiful, and visually pulsating illustrations with simple text have been deployed to encourage the children’s sense of curiosity and wonder.
There are two levels; one is for basics for kids which is written in black text and the other level is in purple text for reading, learning, and beyond. It allows the kids to grasp the scientific concepts but in a fun and creative way.
3. Artificial Intelligence For Dummies
By John Mueller
This book tackles the misinterpretation and misunderstanding of artificial intelligence. It also emphasizes the importance of AI and its future. This book provides a clear introduction to AI technology and how it is being used today.
This book consists of several sections in which different uses are very well explained with the help of different misinterpretations. There are several applications of AI explained in this book like self-driving care to drones, medical field to smart technology. Moreover, it also shows the contribution of AI to society, its limitation, its history, usage of AI in the computer science field, and how the world is going to change by this technology.
4. Artificial Intelligence: 101 Things You Must Know Today About Our Future
By Lasse Rouhiainen
This book is more focused on the importance of AI on the life of humans and its impacts that are both negative and positive. This book also has the post-COVID-19 section of AI. This book helps you learn the emerging technologies and their impacts on business, society, and humanity. All the hot topics of AI are well covered in this book from chatbots to robotic healthcare, smart cars to post covid-19 era, and much more.
This book also helps individuals learn to best prepare for the inevitable wave of science’s innovations with the help of practical and strategical tools. It also depicts the future of this technology; like robots revolutionize the industry and society, ethical standards and re-education are important for this generation, and many more.
5. Practical Artificial Intelligence: An Enterprise Playbook
By Alan Pelz-Sharpe
AI can bring sudden changes and improvements in the workplace, society, and industry. Over the years, billions of dollars are invested and will be invested in the future too. Many AI-based projects fail early or disappoint in a long run.
This book explains effective strategies and techniques to use AI in a better and correct way to get positive results and more success in projects. This all is based on the independent perspective of AI; its strengths and weaknesses, its usage area, and many more. If the guidance for using this technology is not correct, then the consequences could be devastating.
6. How Smart Machines Think
By Sean Gerrish
The algorithms and key ideas have been highlighted by which these intelligent machines perceive and interact with society and the world. This book thoroughly describes the software architecture of AI. It explains how the self-driven cars stay on the road and the passenger reaches the destination without any harm and hurdle, different algorithms by which TV shows and movies are recommended on different social websites, as well as how programmers are treating and programming the systems.
This book contains less technical details and more easy-to-understand text due to which science and technology geeks will find this book very pleasing and helpful because it’s a guide to the future in which the world will be dependent on these machines not on humans.
7. Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence
By Tegmark Max
This book shows the way to keep human interaction alive in different tasks which involve AI. In this way, prosperity can grow side by side with automation without leaving people lacking income or purpose. This book empowers readers to understand different aspects of artificial intelligence. It covers all the viewpoints whether they are controversial or not, from consciousness to superintelligence. It explains how AI can change the future and how can we make our future with the help of this intelligent technology. It highlights how this technology can affect crimes, law, war, jobs, and the sense of a human being. It shows the way by which human beings and AI can work altogether and avoid challenging factors.
8. Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach
By Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig
This book offers an up-to-date and most comprehensive introduction to the theory and practice of AI. It offers a coherent view of artificial intelligence. AI algorithms are presented most simply. This book provides the telepath for readers to understand the AI technology by first viewing towards the history and the past of this field and then the future of this technology and how we have come to this day with the integration of AI in daily life tasks.
This book conveys how we can use automation as much as we want without depending on it. The approach used by the author is very unique in a way that a reader can understand the full depth of basics and advances of AI without any complexity.
9. Artificial Intelligence: A Guide to Intelligent Systems
By Michael Negnevitsky
This book’s target audience is students. It helps the students utilize their thinking and understanding of AI to build such intelligent systems that are based on knowledge. This will allow students to build systems like evolutionary computation, intelligent agents based systems, neural networks, etc. There are no complex mathematical terms used in the book, so readers know exactly which technology is useful and which is not. This book describes the usage of tools with examples. It is good to minimize the programming complexity at the student level for AI and students can understand and get benefit by discovering new tools and their usage.
