This detailed look at the thoroughly modern science of artificial intelligence (AI) confronts its young readers with the question, "Can computers think?" It discusses the famous Turing test of machine intelligence, expert systems, chess-playing machines, computer vision and hearing, and more. The author's joint interview with Herbert Simon and the late Allen Newell enables these two founders of AI to speak directly to teenagers, and they seem to have relished the opportunity.
