Artificial intelligence can be classified into three different types of systems: analytical, human-inspired, and humanized artificial intelligence. Analytical AI has only characteristics consistent with cognitive intelligence; generating cognitive representation of the world and using learning based on past experience to inform future decisions. Human-inspired AI has elements from cognitive and emotional intelligence; understanding human emotions, in addition to cognitive elements, and considering them in their decision making. Humanized AI shows characteristics of all types of competencies (i.e., cognitive, emotional, and social intelligence), is able to be self-conscious and is self-aware in interactions with others. Artificial intelligence was founded as an academic discipline in 1956. For most of its history, AI research has been divided into subfields based on technical considerations, such as particular goals (e.g., "robotics" or "machine learning"), the use of particular tools (e.g., "logic" or artificial neural networks), or deep philosophical differences. Subfields have also been based on social factors such as particular institutions or the work of particular researchers. This publication focuses on the various applied uses of AI in the field of international business. Objective The objective of this publication is to provide a wide variety of topics as they pertain to artificial intelligence applications within the context of international business in one 2-volume source. This publication will impact the field of international business because there is scant extant literature on artificial intelligence as it pertains to international business. Target Audience The primary target audience for this publication is scholars and practitioners who need a Reference resource on artificial intelligence as it pertains to international business and marketing. The secondary audience is graduate students involved in international business and related areas.
