You don't need to read both this book and "Humans Need Not Apply." They both cover the same topics. This book is essentially the cliffnotes version of "Humans Need Not Apply," so read one or the other according to how in dept you want to get.

Overall, a good overview of AI. The first half or so of the book was a very useful 'for beginners, generally intelligent, but not computer scientists' introduction to the components of AI, how it works, what it does and doesn't do, why it is happening now, etc. The last 25-50% of the book was Kaplan's personal extrapolation about ethics and society with respect to AI, and a lot less valuable. In retrospect if I'd stopped reading right when that tangent started I probably would consider this a ...more

Clear and succinct, exactly how an introduction should be. I've already read a few books on this topic but a couple of extra parts I'd not seen before (or remembered).

This is a great overview of AI.

The first half of the book was a very useful introduction for non-computer scientists about how AI, works, what it does (and doesn't do), this history of AI and major players, etc.

The back half of the book was Kaplan's take on where AI is going as a futurist.

If you are interested in the topic and don't have time to read the whole thing, definitely read the first part.

I’ve heard the ants laughing and have heard the synapses in a cats brain crackle and fire...

We are bound to anthropomorphize. We assume others who look and talk like us must also think and feel like us. Is this proof or do we need the extended Turing test? Kaplan does a fine job at reviewing the nature of AI as well as the effect of automation changing the nature of work. It suffices to say, that it is not necessary for a machine to actually have self awareness but if it acts like it does we may

This book by Stanford professor and AI expert Jerry Kaplan offers a succinct and balanced introduction to this important field. He covers a wide range of topics from the history of AI, its philosophical debates and its wide-ranging impact on society, law, ethics and the economy. Professor Kaplan patiently explains that despite all the fanfare, the machine learning approach to AI has been around for decades, only advancing recently due to significant improvements in hardware and the wide ...more

This is not aimed at more technical readers, but instead offers a suitable background in AI principles and history, before speculating how AI is likely to influence society in coming decades.

If you have little to no background in AI/ML and are looking for a short read that will help you make career or policy decisions, then this would be a pretty good start. For readers interested in the more technical slant, Pedro Domingo’s The Master Algorithm is a better place to turn.

I was surprised by the

Fascinating read - introduces AI concepts with extensive footnotes that can be used as a deeper dive into specific focus areas (e.g. how AI will impact law or Human Labor). After having taken an intro to AI course in Undergrad, I found that the book also entertains an audience with some technical background - particularly so, by equating the algorithm to a rational agent or discussing neural networks.

Highly recommend for anyone looking to learn the fundamentals of a buzzword that will likely

An easy mostly non-technical read for those who wonder what AI might bring to our lives. Author efficiently explains the history of the field and then provides a framework for the possible future impacts of AI applications. With extreme hypothetical examples, the readers are introduced to what might be lying ahead in the near or distant future with implications in economics, employment, law and more..

Jerry Kaplan brings in many different perspectives on AI. I had read this earlier book "Humans Need Not Apply" and came out very impressed his point of view. Anyone who wishes to understand AI broadly including imperatives for Humanity and Society at large will gain immensely by reading this book. There are serious questions on AI and Jerry handles it superbly without resorting to populist approach.

Went into the library on a whim today an grabbed the only book they had on AI. Pretty good considering! It succeeded in doing exactly what I hoped for: gave me a framework to think about AI through, got specific about various applications of it (watch out, lawyers!), provided strong caution when prognosticating the way in which AI will affect labor markets and extend wealth disparity, but then stopped short of giving credence to conspiracy theories that see this as the beginning of the end.

The first half of the book is a good introduction to the world of Artificial Intelligence. In a clear language, it explains to the neophyte what AI is by giving a lot of examples in all the fields where it is used. The second half of the book is less convincing. It raises a number of issues, also ethical issues such as if a machine commits a crime can be held accountable for it, which seem to me too far fetched for the time being.
Tõnu Vahtra
I expected more insights from a book that focuses on state of AI in 2017, since I already knew most of the topics in the book I should assume that I know more than average person in these matters.

AI/singularity books take either the positive or negative approach (like end of humankind), this book would be situated more on the positive side.
Robin Jose
A good primer for the uninitiated.

This is not a technical book - it's more of a layman's overview. It serves that purpose well. Author discusses the issues, philosophical as well as social aspects well - however it could have been better to spend a chapter to describe what AI in terms of technology (without necessarily getting into code).

Good introduction of AI for beginners.
I enjoyed most of the book but did not agree with all of the claims made. Then again, the author was very clear from the beginning that this is not a scientific book, but rather his opinions.

Brief intro to AI. If you are curious to learn about AI because of the hype about it Int he world, this book may be the one to consider. It will give an intro about history of AI, what has been so far. It is a non technical book
