There are few other human inventions that are likely to have as large an impact on our lives as machines that can think . . . The steam engine liberated our muscles. The computer is set to liberate our minds.

The development of thinking machines is an adventure as bold and ambitious as any that humans have attempted. And the truth is that Artificial Intelligence is already an indispensable part of our daily lives. Without it, Google wouldn't find out whatever you need to know. Your smartphone would be . . . just a phone. In countless ways AI has made the world what it is today.

But where will AI technologies take us in the future? We know they will continue to change society, but how? Will AI destroy our jobs? Could it even pose an existential threat? What should we be doing now to prepare for the future?

In this new book, Toby Walsh provides a fascinating survey of Artificial Intelligence for the general reader- where it came from, the state of the art today, and where it will take us tomorrow. His ten predictions of what AI will have achieved by 2050 will surprise you! Walsh discusses how AI will transform our societies, our economies and even ourselves, and what we can do about this.
