  • $\begingroup$ deeplearningbook.org Here is one about machine learning and neural network $\endgroup$ – Jérémy Blain Sep 25 '18 at 7:15
  • $\begingroup$ there are no "best" book in any kind. AI is broad term and regroup a lot, lot, of subjects, algorithms, methods, models, even philosophy, and so on. There are no books that can cover all these subjects in one. and it depends on what do you really want ? $\endgroup$ – Jérémy Blain Sep 25 '18 at 7:17

    $\begingroup$ Informally, consensus on this Stack over the past few years seems to be for Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach (Norvig & Russell). It provides a history of the field and terminology, and a survey of the concepts and techniques. The 3rd edition is current, but here's a free pdf of the 2nd edition. it is also well written, fun, and an enjoyable read :) $\endgroup$ – DukeZhou Sep 25 '18 at 23:20

Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach by Russell & Norvig gives a good overview of AI. You can find the code implementations of the algorithms discussed in this book here: aima-python

If you are interested in Deep Learning, Deep Learning by Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio and Aaron Courville is a good choice. The online version of this book is made available free by the authors and can be found at http://www.deeplearningbook.org/

  • $\begingroup$ Stuart Russell and Peter Norvig have learned AI by writing this book. This approach is called learning by teaching and means, that the fastest way of figuring out a new topic is to explain to somebody else. It makes sense, if AI beginners would write their own “A Modern Approach” which is organized around different priorities. The best book i know is an empty sheet of paper which has to be filled. $\endgroup$ – Manuel Rodriguez Sep 25 '18 at 7:53
  • $\begingroup$ Russell and Norvig was criticized for lacking critical portions of foundational AI theory when it was published and its grossly outdated today. $\endgroup$ – FauChristian Sep 26 '18 at 1:20
