A penetrating guide to artificial intelligence: what it is, how it works, and the ways it will define our lives - for better and worse

Computer programs can recognize human faces more reliably than humans can. They've beat us in board games, which requires strategic thinking and intuition, and they bluff better than the world's best poker players. At a breathtaking pace, machines are becoming more skilled at making complex decisions - often better and faster than us.

In Who's Afraid of Artificial Intelligence?, a concise guide to the most awe-inspiring AI achievements, as well as the most frightening, award-winning author Thomas Ramge expertly explains how machines are learning to learn. Ultimately, he tackles the greatest AI conundrum: What will become of us humans when smart machines become more intelligent than us? What happens to the world when, in many ways, we're made obsolete?
