Elon Musk, Stephen Hawking, and Bill Gates have proclaimed Artificial Intelligence as a possible threat in the future unless humans learn to use it wisely. Could this be true? Is it possible for us to create artificial intelligence programming so that we'll soon have thinking and feeling AI? Is it even possible for us to have a human-looking AI run for president in the future? All of these questions and thoughts are addressed in Artificial Intelligence: Understanding A.I. and the Implications of Machine Learning.

Would you listen to Artificial Intelligence again? Why?

The idea of Artificial Intelligence has been the subject of many Science Fiction stories from Star Trek to Terminator. The story does a good job of intruding us to what AI is and then proposing some what if scenarios. I'll definitely listen again as some interesting concept are proposed and merritt listening to again for better understanding.

What did you like best about this story?

I found this informative, it's really more of a documentary style writing than a story... so there isn't a plot per se, but I learned some new facets about AI that I didn't know even though I work in Technology.

What does Roger A. Wyatt bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Roger's voice is easy to listen to and understand and he effectively uses modulation of tone to help introduce new ideas and concepts.

If you were to make a film of this book, what would the tag line be?
