Welcome to EasyAI!#

This book is an introduction to the world of Artificial Intelligence (AI) designed specifically for readers in the humanities. If you are a translator, journalist, linguist, or simply interested in understanding more about AI, this book is for you. We have designed EasyAI to be easy to read and understand, with no prior knowledge of math or computer science required. Through a combination of clear explanations and visual illustrations, we will introduce you to the main concepts of AI and show you how it is changing the world around us with a particular focus on the domain of language. Whether you are new to AI or simply looking to learn more, EasyAI has something to offer.

It is important to note that the book is an ongoing project and is being constantly updated. As such, existing chapters will be expanded and new chapters will be added.
