Audible Editor Reviews

Far from being a futuristic science, artificial intelligence is happening right now, and in this succinct and cutting-edge listen, University of Sussex Professor of Philosophy Blay Whitby guides us through this emerging field. Performed with typical enthusiasm and energy by accomplished audiobook narrator Richard Aspel, this audiobook introduces listeners to everything from nanotechnology and artificial neural nets to autodidactic computers. Including a critique of common myths about AI (like the idea that humans will become enslaved by machines, as in the film The Terminator), this riveting performance is a worthy introduction to the many successes of AI, as well as the field's promising future.

    I enjoy reading fantasy, science fiction, and horror the most. To improve, I read about language, psychology, spirituality, and art. I read about computer science and business for professional reasons.

    Story
    "A great discussion on human thought and computing"

    A good summary of artificial intelligence topics. This book contains information detailing the inception of the field, and how each branch has developed, forked, and crossed-disciplines. Ideas such as problem solving machines, systems that obtain and store knowledge, simulated logic and decision making, robotic navigation and world domination, process evolution, and visual object identification are covered. The source of the ideas are also explained, as most are functions found in nature and life. The boundaries of artificial intelligence at consciousness are also described. Yet even more ideas from art and philosophy are considered with the science of simulating intellect with machines. In summary, I found this book a great description of all the ways humans have sought to utilize humanities best features when inventing and creating technology.
