    Rah rah We're all so heads over heels ga gaOver all the intelligenceThe artificial pseudo oneThat's not precisely intelligentOr even precise oftenBut rather's pretty bonkersWill it wage war on us? Or is it? Basically a mix of interviews bordering on a mix of conjecture hype and really vague thoughts on AI Not too illuminating DNF

    The insight this book gives is how the views to the AI future vary widely among those 23 or 24 if we include the author Martin Ford top frontiers of the AI The book also shows AI technology and implications on culture economy ethics regulation are evolving This would be a great book for those who started learning AImachine learning The book would help prevent one from developing a dogmatic view of the AI Martin Ford did a fantastic job of crowdsourcing the meta knowledge of the AI through this interview form This is not the book to learn a techniue in depth though I would definitely read a seuel if it were to be published in 10 years Now here is a long version of the summary as each view from those 24 people was uite valuable to mesource of tables Links to the tables with better resolution

    Ratings are useless for this book This book contains interviews with 24 persons who are currently working as researchers developers philosophers and entrepreneurs in the field of Artificial Intelligence This will be a great book whos are interested in this field not only interested to contribute but also interested to know what is happening in academia and industry It is good to know the field and infer the future from the insights of experts rather than a public figure like Elon Musk who is basically a businessman Will AI one day establish a dictatorship in the world? The future is difficult to predict Maybe there is plausibility but it is hard to predict when and how it will happen But one thing for sure researchers and philosophers are very much aware of this There’s also no better way to kill the field of AI than to have a major control failure just as the nuclear industry killed itself through Chernobyl and Fukushima AI will kill itself if we fail to address the control issue STUART J RUSSELL

    Artificial Intelligence is a revolutionary concept which has come to grasp the humanity and take the time ahead on wings It is transitioning from the realm of sci fi to the reality of our daily lives The time is not far when every basic human action would be commanded and aided by machines But are we really prepared for such a conseuence where machines would actually slave us? To numerous uestions pertaining to our existential threats and development Architects of Intelligence is a complete solution It is a compilation of open ended conversations with the minds who are behind the rapid engineering of Artificial Intelligence The author has sueezed his one to one interviews with brilliant brains involved in AI and has come up with this book The book offers valuable insights into the realm of Artificial Intelligence with the views of the people who are pioneers in deep learning and the critics being elucidated and put forth clearly And therefore the book has several potential readers be it the ones who are involved in technology or simply the ones who wish to acuire information Even if a few terms may resemble the typical jargon those are explained briefly at the very outset of the bookThe concept of Artificial General Intelligence intrigued me and so has been discussed widely in the book While some interviewees were of the opinion that AI is going to positively mold our lives there were several others who envisage it as a potential threat for the very human existence There are layers to the AI which uncover themselves as we read through the minds of the people It is fascinating to know about the deep learning which is again closely related to AGI Deep Learning is deep because they added an ability to train deeper networks; they have layers It is true that Artificial Intelligence can cause harm but the truth has it that we humans created it in the first place So we should be the masters There are risks associated with it no doubt but it is our responsibility to be cautious with it It doesn't matter which culture will reach the pinnacle of fully exploiting AI but what is important is that we need to be judicious about its usage Our primary objective should always be to make machines for helping us and not controlling us The analysis is definitely crucial The book came to me in hardcover It was a pleasure reading across the interviews of amazing people though I am not very much into technologyfacepalms Yet I liked how much knowledge this book gives about the wide topic of AI It is garnering so much attention globally and this book aids in understanding its present and future potential The language the presentation everything is put forth wonderfully One would be at ease while reading it

    A bit repetitive but great to see the variety of opinions from the world's leading experts And kudos for not interviewing Elon Musk


  6. says:

    No doubt an insightful book however the format of the book made it seem a bit repetitive by the end of it Had it been a bit shorter or varied in the uestions the author asked interviewees may have been engaging through to the last chapters

    This book answered a lot of my uestion about the development of artificial intelligence AI Artificial Intelligence is going disrupt the world in so many ways It’s going to change the world as we know it and it’s happening as I write this review The book talks about the risks rewards and timelines associated with this new development My fear is that the general public is not that literate or aware of what’s happening in our world and many will suffer because they’re not prepared Some think we will lose as many as 400 million jobs globally by the year 2030 due to automation of AI and robotics There are think tanks that are discussing solutions like universal basic income but many economists don’t support that and others suggest that we need be a conditional basic income in which unemployed individuals can be paid to study and be retrained The hiring process is already changing Now rather than give your potential employer your resume and hope for an interview you’re asked to submit a video to a 3rd party like HireVue which will analyze that video and look for non verbal communication skills along with a survey they provide and this will be the new way to get that first interview Now let’s consider how the military will use AI They will be using it surgically You don’t drop a bomb that destroys an entire building you send in your drone that just puts the person you are interested in capturing to sleep; it could be non lethalThank goodness that a Terminator scenario is not very likely We should not expect that somehow we’ll come up with the secret to artificial general intelligence and that we’ll create a human level intelligence that will escape our control and all of a sudden a robot will want to take over the world The desire to take over the world is not correlated with intelligence; it’s correlated with testosterone We have a lot of examples today in American politics clearly illustrating that the desire for power is not correlated with intelligence The book goes into a lot of detail of why this is the case A level of self driving cars will be available within the next five years and medical imaging which identifies diseases and cancers is going to be radically revolutionized Probably the most visible effects over the next few years are in medicine and health care transportation and information accessCollaboration of healthcare is also going to be supported through AI An example of this is the work being done at eye hospitals where their looking at diagnosing macular degeneration from retina scans The publication at Nature Medicine reported that AI system can uickly interpret eye scans from routine clinical practice Even your vacuum cleaner and your lawn mower will be automated Instead of going randomly around your room your vacuum cleaner is now going to be able to see where it needs to go and your lawnmower is going to be able to mow your lawn without running over your flowerbeds It’s not just your car that will drive itselfDrunk driving will also be eliminated AI software will be able to monitor the driver for drowsiness distraction fatigue and even intoxication In the case of intoxication the driver will be alerted or even potentially have the car intervene Intervention could be anything from changing the music to blasting a little bit of cold air or tightening the seat belt all the way to potentially saying “You know what? I’m the car and I feel I could be a safer driver than you are right now I’m taking control over” There’s a lot of actions the car can take once it understands the level of attention and how impaired a driver is One of the challenges we’re facing is our aging population Depending on whose numbers you look at the ratio is changing from something like nine working age people to every one retired person 91 to two working age people to every retired person 21 Presently Japan is faced with an elderly population and we are seeing some solutions being offered at robotics trade shows where there are a lot of lab demos of robots helping the elderly to do simple tasks such as getting into and out of bed getting into and out of the bathroom just simple daily things Those things currently reuire one to one human help but as that ratio of working age to elderly changes there isn’t going to be the labor force to fulfil that need That’s going to pull robotics into helping the elderlyI’ve just scratched the surface within this review so I’d encourage all of us to keep up to date with this technology it is our future

    After reading this book I can say I am a little better informed on what Artificial Intelligence is all about and better placed to understand the hype surrounding the technology Martin Ford the author rightly starts the book by defining what is AI there are difference of opinions amongst the technologists on this and terms like back propagation convoluted neural network etcetera Moreover you get to hear read about AI from several horses’ mouths pioneers and trailblazers some of who have been working on AI since the 60s when it was just a concept and when the size of the computers were as as big as a roomThe book is actually a series of interviews with 23 scientists and inventors who are currently active in the field of AI They give their perspective on their definition of AI Deep Learning evolution and timeline for development of human level intelligence also called AGI general artificial intelligence self driving cars China’s advancements in the field use of AI in warfare perceived economic disruption by robots and automated machines universal basic income etcOne major takeaway for me from this book is that most scientists featured in the book are very bullish on the impact of the technology on humans They contend that the disruption is inevitable as happens with advancement in any technology but it will also throw up uniue and massive opportunities and as a species man will have to be adaptable to the changing scenarios No one actually has an apocalyptic view of machines overtaking humans in intelligence which the likes of Elon Musk have predicted The book is overall an amazing read both for AI aficionados and people who are inuisitive about what AI is all about Highly recommended

    A series of interviews wirh people prominent in the field of AI research What's happening in AI now some history and where they see successful or interesting pathways in thr future Everyone is asked about AGI artificial general intelligence and when they think it might happen It's uite interesting to read about the different strategies researchers are using in AI and what the future of work for humans

    The bible on AI Not the lightest of reads but highly recommended
