Artificial Intelligence is the attempt to create machines which learn, reason and behave like humans.
For an entire decade, Newquist wrote more about artificial intelligence than anyone else on the planet.
His work has been cited by The New York Times, The Wall Street Journal, Forbes, Fortune, Business Week, The Economist and a host of others.
He was a columnist for Computerworld, AI Expert, The Expert Systems Journal, a contributor to Popular Mechanics, Newsweek, and the Encarta Encyclopedia, and publisher of the AI TRENDS newsletter. His work resulted in at least a million words written on artificial intelligence.
After 10 years, he decided to put all that he had learned into a book called The Brain Makers. It was well received and is considered the definitive history of man's attempt to make thinking machines . . .
