Anything where we can install it and watch it change all by itself, improving upon itself and not just some random action but something which LEARNS.

[Ed. note: All of the preceding is exactly as received. AI has so many branches and sub-branches (twigs?) and has evolved greatly over the years. I suspect the submitter, like most of us, has seen numerous mentions of AI in the press: self-driving cars, natural language translation, Google's Deep Mind, IBM's Jeapordy-playing computer, object recognition... but knows not even where to begin. So, fellow Soylentils, what has been helpful to you in your explorations of AI? What software can be downloaded and experimented with so as to get some hands-on appreciation for what it can do? I suspect there are many others in the community who would not mind playing around with it, too. --martyb]

    Good links. 3blue1brown videos are pretty decent. I like Anaconda [] for easy installation of TensorFlow (and GPU accelerated version of TF) as well as all the Python an SciPy installs you might need. Great for getting into neural networks without having to worry to much about versions and distributions and whatnot.

    AI I think is a little more broad subject than just neural networks, and doesn't necessarily require neural networks.

    Bingo!! You get the prize for understatement of the day! If you sweep away all the current pattern matching activity (with big funding), there is still a core of researchers working on understanding human intelligence--in many different aspects.
