Artificial intelligence is among the most consequential issues facing humanity, yet much of today’s commentary has been less than intelligent: awe-struck, credulous, apocalyptic, uncomprehending. Gary Marcus and Ernest Davis, experts in human and machine intelligence, lucidly explain what today’s AI can and cannot do, and point the way to systems that are less A and more I.
Lucid and deeply informed, from a critical but sympathetic perspective
When I was a child I saw "2001: A Space Odyssey" and then read everything I could about A.I. All the smart people said it was 20 years away. Twenty years later I was an adult and the smart people said that A.I. was 20 years away. Twenty years after that we passed 2001 and the smart people said it was about 20 years away... Now is the time to listen to smarter people.
Finally, a book that tells us what AI is, what AI is not.
Every tech CEO should read Rebooting AI and everyone else at the company, too.
