Publisher's Summary

Are you confused about what all the rage behind artificial intelligence is and would like to learn more?

This audiobook covers everything from machine learning to robotics and the internet of things.

You can use it as a nifty guidebook whenever you come across news headlines that talk about some new advancement in AI by Google or Facebook.

By the time you finish listening, you will be aware of what artificial neural networks are, how gradient descent and back propagation work, and what deep learning is.

You will also learn a comprehensive history of AI, from the first invention of automations in antiquity to the driverless cars of today.

Here’s just a tiny fraction of what you’ll discover:

  • Understand how machines can “think” and how they learn
  • Learn the five reasons why experts are warning us about AI research
  • Find the answers to the top six myths of artificial intelligence
  • Learn what neural networks are and how they work, the “brains” of machine learning
  • Understand reinforcement learning and how it is used to teach machine learning systems through experience
  • Become up-to-date with the current state-of-the-art artificial intelligence methods that use deep learning
  • Learn the basics of recommender systems
  • Expand your current view of machines and what is possible with modern robotics

Poor Performance

Given this is only 3.5 hours I really tried to give this a full go since I am interested in the topic. The reader choice was just awful though. It sounds like you are listening to a computer reading the book. If this was intentional, it was a bad decision. After an hour I had to just give up.

Great Overview of Al

This book provides a very insightful overview of the broad field of 'artificial intelligence'. I had no prior knowledge of the subject, only a love of web development languages and a desire to understand certain AI concepts; I feel suitably enlightened having listened to this audiobook. The evenly-paced, measured, almost robotic narration added to my enjoyment. I would definitely recommend this audiobook.

Very interesting.

This was a great insight into artificial intelligence, great examples. I'd purchase more by the author.

Awful narration: interesting topic

Given the topic, I couldn’t help wonder if it was a human reading the book. The lack of human warmth in narration was off-putting. As such at times, whilst finding the topic of interest, retaining focus was somewhat of a challenge.

Overall, there are I imagine more balanced, better written starting points to this topic. I am also unsure who the target audience is for this title given the frequent references to statistical models and theories alongside sections discussing heuristics etc etc. Hardly absolute beginner concepts.

My biggest gripe however is the lack of criticality throughout the book when discussing some of the concerns posited by some who are wary of AI. A smaller niggle would the odd jump in writing styles from an almost academic to vernacular style in a single sentence.

I have certainly learnt a few things listening to the book, but suspect a good editor is needed to tidy things up if a second edition is written.
