A rapid and wide-ranging tour d’horizons of life with AI.
Toby Walsh is a Professor of Artificial Intelligence and the breadth of his book shows that he is in command of his subject. It is highly accessible and therefore readable by the curious layman. There is no mathematics. He is contingently optimistic about AI, steering a course between foolish naivety and panic-mongering. Nonetheless, the contingency is that AI’s impact on the future depends on our choices as to its capabilities and its use. So, he does not try to predict what will happen. Rather, he sets out some of the possible outcomes.
