Welcome! This research guide provides an overview of Artificial Intelligence (AI) including popular tools sorted by purpose, definitions of common terms, historical timeline, people to know, policies, ethics, news, videos to get you started, library books, databases, and even an intro to playing with AI. AI may seem overwhelming at first, but remember, you are probably already using AI in your everyday life--navigation assistance while driving, facial recognition to unlock your phone, editing suggestions in documents or emails, personal digital assistants like Alexa, etc. Use this guide to build your background knowledge on AI and to grow your understanding of related ethical issues, so that you can make informed decisions about when and how to use AI tools.
