We're all so heads over heels ga-ga!
Over all the intelligence,
The artificial pseudo-one,
That's not precisely intelligent,
Or even precise (often!).
But rather's pretty bonkers.
Will it wage war on us?
Or is it?
Basically a mix of interviews bordering on a mix of conjecture, hype and really vague thoughts on AI.
Not too illuminating. DNF. ...more
This would be a great book for those who started learning AI/machine learning. The book would help prevent one from developing a dogmatic view of the AI. Martin Ford did a fantastic job of crowdsourcing the meta-knowledge of the AI thro ...more

It presents range of deeper technical and higher level policy/economy/governance considerations related to the field, with some interviews being just stellar and some.. too sci fi-ish to my liking. It also gets repetitive at times - but might be by author’s design.
The best thing about this book is you get to hear from the experts, people w ...more
The book talks about the risks, rewards and timelines associated with this new development. My fear is that the general public is not that literate or aware of what’s happening in our world and many will suffer, because they’re not prepared.

Martin Ford, the author, rightly, starts the book by defining what is AI (there are difference of opinions amongst the technologists on this) and terms like back propagation, convoluted neural network, etcetera. Moreover you get to hear (read) about AI from several horses’ mouths, pioneers and trailblazers, some of who ...more
It tries to touch upon all topics that concern the AI community without going deep. Not a great informational book. Ex: "How long is AGI going to take? ...more

Architects of AI does what the podcasts, explainer videos, fanatics and passionate technologists fail to do repeatedly. Deliver the realities, limitations, co ...more
There were a number of repeated themes throughout the interviews. One was debate about whether deep learning, a hybrid between deep learning and a symboli ...more
Computers are useless they answer questions rather asking them ( by Picasso )
We are not going out of jobs because we will not have a shortage of problemes
Technology self regulate itself, people will lose their jobs but a counter force is people need time to learn how to use the new technology
Ai may make task stupid like taxi drivers, no need to be smart: it will push salaries to low

"Current AI - and the AI that we can foresee in the reasonable future - does not, and will not, have a moral sense or moral understanding of what is right and what is wrong." Yoshua Bengio.

To a certain degree this book was a little repetitive because similiar questions were asked to the 23 (there wouldnt have been a better structure possible to show each person's opinions I guess) experts but nonetheless, there were also mostly new informations in each interview.
I also hoped to learn more about AI techniques which I definitely did, but the book stayed more general, which is completely ...more
Though interviews are fairly open ended, author tries to focus discussion around getting to know opinions of these 23 individuals on questions such as
-What are some of the most promising AI approaches and technologie ...more

And yes, I'm glad that Amazon.com made the recommendation. The book provides interviews of the top people in AI, whether academics, VCs or entrepreneurs. In other words, there is a diversity of opinion.
I also like how the author covers the key topics of AI: deep learning, the prospects of general AI, and so on.
All in all, if you want a great backgrounde ...more
