Need help with my Artificial Intelligence project

Hi, I am a new member..
I am planning to learn Artificial Intelligence and create an avatar that we can we can interact with..
Basicly, the avatar can move and have feelings.

Please tell me the best way to learn AI so I can make this project alive...

  1. I think that might be slightly outside the knowledge of these forums. To truly learn AI will take you a long time and most likely a university degree + masters .

    I covered a few modules on AI during my degree, but I still wouldnt attempt to create an interactive avatar! What programming knowledge do you have, because that will be your first step.

    I see.. I am now learning the C programming language.
    I know learning AI is not easy and I have a long way ahead.
    Thats why Im starting to learn is right now even though I am only 16years old. :)

    By the way, What books or module did you use during your degree?
    Im searching some books that might help me understand the basic principles of AI, Any suggestions?
  3. "Artificial Intelligence: A modern approach" seems to be a good starting place.

    There are lots of different areas people are looking at.

    Some companies are trying to mimic the neurons behaviour in the brain in circuitry, building a brain that learns as we do rather than programming a brain to work as we do.

    Some are trying to program AI, some are trying to program AI to be able to learn as we do.

    Its a huge field, and trying to get hold of a professor in Computer Science would be a good start, but I dont know how receptive they would be.

    I discovered that the book you mentioned is TOO expensive, and I cant cant afford it..
    I will try to find a cheaper way.
    Thanks for the suggestions.

    There are lectures available on Youtube that outline the basics of AI. They may be a much better and much cheaper option.

    As to the cost of the book, that's unfortunately, normal.
