AI is the topic du jour, and for good reason. According to my guest today, it will undoubtedly impact all of us fairly dramatically in the next few years. I am fortunate to have the author of "Is the Algorithm Plotting Against Us? A layperson's guide to the concepts, math and pitfalls of AI. We discuss all scenarios of AI - no real impact, some pretty interesting impacts, and then then end of times.
Artificial intelligence is everywhere—it’s in our houses and phones and cars. AI makes decisions about what we should buy, watch, and read, and it won’t be long before AI’s in our hospitals, combing through our records. Maybe soon it will even be deciding who’s innocent, and who goes to jail . . .
But most of us don't understand how AI works. We hardly know what it is.
In Is the Algorithm Plotting Against Us?, AI expert Kenneth Wenger deftly explains the complexity at AI’s heart, demonstrating its potential and exposing its shortfalls. Wenger empowers readers to answer the question—What exactly is AI?—at a time when its hold on tech, society, and our imagination is only getting stronger.
