Nice Consistent Format

It's helpful to hear these case studies within a consistent outline. It seems like the technology is so new in its implementation and maybe even very proprietary to learn more about the marked improvements and insights, but there was enough meat on the bone to make a compelling case to take the technology very seriously.

Shallow book with an unengaging read

The information is on a super basic level and the reading is not engaging. There is a lot of repetition of content, and a lot of “hype talk”. For instance super basic descriptive statistics is called AI. Clearly the authors just got the sales pitch from the interviewed companies and pasted it in. It’s super frustrating how the narrator emphasizes ”machine learning” every time he says it, like he expects a drumroll after every time he says it. Another super irritating reading detail is that all the frikking time the narrator says “Artificial Intelligence, A, I”. YES, I already knew that when I started reading the book, and certainly after the 100:th time you repeated it I got it, STOP REPEATING that abbreviation goddamnit!
