Publisher's Summary

Artificial intelligence is a phrase that carries with it heavy connotations. Although artificial intelligence is nothing more than the capacity for logic and understanding that machines can exhibit, in the minds of most Americans artificial intelligence is almost a Pandora’s box that, when opened, will eventually signal the human race’s doom....

The idea that machines pose an existential threat to human beings has been around for at least 60 years. It goes something like this: intelligent machines eventually realize the uselessness of human beings and turn against their creators. Or this: intelligent machines reduce human to cattle or even food after a dramatic war that human beings lose. 

Human beings have created countless languages and writing systems that have allowed us to expand collective human knowledge over a period of thousands of years. Much of the knowledge that we utilized today, knowledge about the math, science, and the stars, originates from observations made thousands of years ago but which were recorded by writing systems, allowing this knowledge to be preserved and passed down. 

Artificial intelligence has been used for many business, financial, medical, and other applications, and scientists and researchers are actively studying how these applications can be expanded to make human life simpler. 

The applications of AI will be explored in this book, both the real applications to business, finance, medicine, and health and the theoretical applications. Even the sensational, perhaps exaggerated applications of AI will be explored in the context of taking a look at how AI may potentially be applied in the future. The purpose of this discussion is for the reader to understand what AI is by understanding how it is used. 

Artificial intelligence is certainly a blessing at this point, but the reality that it may become a curse is not lost on some people. Understanding the full implications of AI requires a deep knowledge of what it is and where it came from. 

For companies and businesses to take advantage of AI-powered and improved interactions, the conversation has to begin inside the organization. Leaders are supposed to start with the available channels and improve their smartness. From that point, they are supposed to ask key questions about engagements with customers and employees. 

Here is a preview of what you will learn....

  • Brief history of artificial intelligence
  • The state of art of machine learning
  • Artificial neural networks applied to machine learning 
  • How can we build an AI-ready culture
  • Our daily lives with AI 

And more....

This book was direct and to-the-point.

I’m new to the field of AI and ML, and the audiobook is an informational book for executives and does get the skinny very very quickly. They even point out societal flaws that seemingly can be fixed with a bit of research and application.

a good intro to so and ml

this is a really good short introduction to artificial intelligence and machine learning that I recommend to those who want a good overview.

the only reason I gave it four stars was because the reader did seem a bit robotic to the point that on more than one occasion I wondered if it was an experiment in NLP and ML in that there was no reader at all and a robot was reading the text. if that was the case then it was pretty good!

I'm going to put the best rating on this guidebook

This is the best introductory review to Artificial Intelligence on the market. It's very well written and organized. There are other audio books that are better for focusing on one particular aspect of AI, but as a general book this is the best I've seen. If you are looking for a really good introductory guide to AI that does not completely dumb things down, buy this audio book.
