Publisher's Summary

If there were a book to explain fully the origins and current existence of artificial intelligence, this book would be it. Artificial intelligence can be seen as an advantageous thing that can help businesses and human life forms have mental advantages over competitors. Artificial intelligence is rumored to take over the world eventually through the medium of technology and overpower the human race. People believe that robots will eventually be more mentally powerful than the human brain, but maybe you should reconsider the thought after, especially after listening to this book. I possess a bachelor's degree in business administration from Tiffin University and an associate's degree in management technology.

Skynet alert!! Cyberdyne Industries is gone!!!

What is A.I.? What does it mean to us as a nation, and as a species? A lot of people fear the great Singularity, a time when Artificial Intelligence no longer responds to our commands, and acts on its own volition. Can this come to pass? Will we see Terminators or rampaging robots? Will the Matrix come to pass? Well, Clinger has the answers, and you might be surprised to hear what they are!

Remington, a frequent Clinger collaborator, does a fine job on the narration, and is easy to understand and follow. Even though I did receive a promo code for this review it in no way influenced my considerations of the material, and in fact, inspired me to be more honest. In fact, getting a code generally makes me harsher as a reviewer as I am more often concerned what someone like Me will decide based on my review.

Don't do it: Be fooled by the Title

Extremely dated for 2015. IBM said "Computers will never take over the world" This comment does not refer to IBM's Watson technology but to a 1960's article. The reigning AI of chess playing programs was mentioned and compared to programs that play checkers. I realize some AI enthusiasts my not have been born when Deep Blue beat Kasparov in 1997.
