AI is considered by many scholars as the 4th Industrial Revolution. Sundar Pichai (CEO, Google) claims that AI technology can be more transformative to the human race than even electricity. Perhaps the two most important milestone events in human evolution were the taming of fire and the invention of the wheel. However, considering its impact and potential, AI might even surpass fire and wheel to claim the throne of ‘The Greatest Invention Ever’.
This book dives into the fascinating world of Artificial Intelligence. Right from the basic definition to its applications in various fields including but not limited to self driving cars, personalised ads, identifying cancerous cells and even predicting the economy’s rise & fall.
The book brushes upon-
– Why the biggest companies today are racing towards AI augmentation in their infrastructures,
– Why is AI creating such a buzz in the world,
– How will it impact everyday life and
– The latest, cutting edge projects under development and already in use by the industry leaders like Amazon Inc, JP Morgan Chase & Co., Google Apps, IBM, Tesla Motors,etc.
Even when you get recommendations of your next video, your next advertisement, your google search suggestion, the best route to take while commuting, filtering your email inbox or even face detection in your photo albums, it is all the work of AI. Every time you find any of your applications get more intuitive or smarter, it is the AI technology that has improved underlying the workings of the app.
Quite unsurprisingly in 2019, AI is the no.1 choice of investment in technological sector for 96.4% of CEO’s. According to a study done by PwC in 2017, AI will contribute an additional 15.7 trillion dollars to the global GDP by 2030, adding more jobs than it eliminates. Even the United States and China are practically at war with each other on the dominance over AI technology.
Reading this book will help you clear the doubts about the core of Artificial Intelligence. About its power, its potential and its abilities. This book is concise, easy to understand and laden with latest examples from the industries. The writers have aimed this book for the generally curious public, those who like to dip their toes in multiple waters. Purposefully, technical terms have been kept at bare minimum and scientific notations are rarely used for easier understanding.
Given the rate at which AI is improving, it is slowly but surely becoming omnipresent, omniscient and omnipotent. It won’t be too wrong to equate AI to a God – The God of Future.
