Artificial Intelligence: A Guide for Thinking Humans

No Recent Scientific Enterprise Has Proved As Alluring, Terrifying, And Filled With Extravagant Promise And Frustrating Setbacks As Artificial Intelligence. An Award-winning Author And Leading Compute...r Scientist Reveals Its Turbulent History And The Recent Surge Of Successes, Grand Hopes, And Emerging Fears That Surround Ai. No Recent Scientific Enterprise Has Proved As Alluring, Terrifying, And Filled With Extravagant Promise And Frustrating Setbacks As Artificial Intelligence. The Award-winning Author Melanie Mitchell, A Leading Computer Scientist, Now Reveals Ai’s Turbulent History And The Recent Spate Of Apparent Successes, Grand Hopes, And Emerging Fears Surrounding It. In Artificial Intelligence, Mitchell Turns To The Most Urgent Questions Concerning Ai Today: How Intelligent—really—are The Best Ai Programs? How Do They Work? What Can They Actually Do, And When Do They Fail? How Humanlike Do We Expect Them To Become, And How Soon Do We Need To Worry About Them Surpassing Us? Along The Way, She Introduces The Dominant Models Of Modern Ai And Machine Learning, Describing Cutting-edge Ai Programs, Their Human Inventors, And The Historical Lines Of Thought Underpinning Recent Achievements. She Meets With Fellow Experts Such As Douglas Hofstadter, The Cognitive Scientist And Pulitzer Prize–winning Author Of The Modern Classic Gödel, Escher, Bach, Who Explains Why He Is “terrified” About The Future Of Ai. She Explores The Profound Disconnect Between The Hype And The Actual Achievements In Ai, Providing A Clear Sense Of What The Field Has Accomplished And How Much Further It Has To Go.interweaving Stories About The Science Of Ai And The People Behind It, Artificial Intelligence Brims With Clear-sighted, Captivating, And Accessible Accounts Of The Most Interesting And Provocative Modern Work In The Field, Flavored With Mitchell’s Humor And Personal Observations. This Frank, Lively Book Is An Indispensable Guide To Understanding Today’s Ai, Its Quest For “human-level” Intelligence, And Its Impact On The Future For Us All.-- Provided By Publisher. Background -- Looking And Seeing -- Learning To Play -- Artificial Intelligence Meets Natural Language -- The Barrier Of Meaning. Melanie Mitchell.

A Human's Guide to Machine Intelligence: How Algorithms Are Shaping Our Lives and How We Can Stay in Control

A Wharton professor and tech entrepreneur examines how algorithms and artificial intelligence are starting to run every aspect of our lives, and how we can shape the way they impact us Through the tec...hnology embedded in almost every major tech platform and every web-enabled device, algorithms and the artificial intelligence that underlies them make a staggering number of everyday decisions for us, from what products we buy, to where we decide to eat, to how we consume our news, to whom we date, and how we find a job. We've even delegated life-and-death decisions to algorithms--decisions once made by doctors, pilots, and judges. In his new book, Kartik Hosanagar surveys the brave new world of algorithmic decision-making and reveals the potentially dangerous biases they can give rise to as they increasingly run our lives. He makes the compelling case that we need to arm ourselves with a better, deeper, more nuanced understanding of the phenomenon of algorithmic thinking. And he gives us a route in, pointing out that algorithms often think a lot like their creators--that is, like you and me. Hosanagar draws on his experiences designing algorithms professionally--as well as on history, computer science, and psychology--to explore how algorithms work and why they occasionally go rogue, what drives our trust in them, and the many ramifications of algorithmic decision-making. He examines episodes like Microsoft's chatbot Tay, which was designed to converse on social media like a teenage girl, but instead turned sexist and racist; the fatal accidents of self-driving cars; and even our own common, and often frustrating, experiences on services like Netflix and Amazon. A Human's Guide to Machine Intelligence is an entertaining and provocative look at one of the most important developments of our time and a practical user's guide to this first wave of practical artificial intelligence.
