Review: Artificial Intelligence

Artificial Intelligence: A Guide for Thinking Humans, by Melanie Mitchell

I first listened to this as an audiobook, which was excellent except that, in places, there were explanatory illustrations to accompany the more complicated passages – not ideal having to refer to the accompanying PDF to see these. So I bought the paperback, as the text is well worth having to hand. This book clearly and amiably dispels some of the myths and ambiguity around AI, tracking its beginnings and changing fortunes, and ultimately considers some of the (frankly quite weird) activities and beliefs of certain futurists. Read this and a lot of the tech world around you will become clearer.

A very timely, entertaining, expertly-written and highly readable guide. My overall rating: 5 stars
