Thinking Machines: The inside story of Artificial Intelligence and our race to build the future

Luke Dormehl

This is a story of how what it means to be human in the face of accelerating machine intelligence. It’s about trying to make computers that are smarter than we are, and what happens when it goes wrong. About what creativity means when all knowledge is data that can be stored on microchips. Or about what happens when machines can learn from their mistakes much faster than humans can. And above all, it’s about the dazzling future around the corner, how our lives might just change forever, and whether you and I aren’t just thinking machines of a sort as well.

My opinion

This is a good overview on basics, philosophy and history of AI research.

For who?

Anyone interested on AI research and some core concepts.
