Book Details

Those who understand how AI thinks are about to win big. Leading AI entrepreneur Nigel Toon explains why it’s so exciting, and how it can be controlled. We are used to thinking of computers as being a step up from calculators, very good at storing information, and maybe even at playing a logical game like chess. But up to now they haven’t been able to think in ways that are intuitive, or respond to questions as a human might. All that has changed, dramatically, in the past few years. Our search engines are becoming answer engines. Artificial intelligence is already revolutionising sectors from education to healthcare to the creative arts. But how does an AI understand sentiment or context? How does it play and win games that have an almost infinite number of moves? And how can we work with AI to produce insights & innovations that are beyond human capacity? We stand at the brink of a historic change that will disrupt society & at the same time create enormous opportunities for those who understand how AI thinks. Nigel Toon shows how we train AI to train itself, so that it can paint images that have never existed before or converse in any language. In doing so he reveals the strange and fascinating ways that humans think too, as we learn how to live in a world shared by machine intelligences of our own creation.
