Mission – Teach the reader how to build projects involving Artificial Intelligence using JavaScript as a primary programming language.– Explore various techniques of using Artificial Intelligence in real-world scenarios– Explain what machine learning is and how it can be applied in Continue reading

Javascript Artificial Intelligence Tutorial – For beginners

Here is a simple JavaScript Artificial Intelligence Tutorial for beginners using the reinforced learning method. You need to have basic knowledge on HTML, CSS and JavaScript, as well as programming basics. This tutorial is a starting point for people who want to implement A.I. in their projects. You are free to “steal” ideas and techniques from this 🙂 In this tutorial we will create a car with an A.I. driver, which will drive along a road avoiding obstacles. The avoiding will be made by the A.I. and not by direct programming (like using IF-statements). There are multiple ways to achieve Continue reading
