I could not put this book down. Barrat writes in a style that is easy to follow and fun to read, and I came away with a much deeper understanding of artificial intelligence and the accompanying challenges, benefits, and threats.Was this review helpful?

Barrat does an excellent job of explaining difficult technical concepts in a way that would be easy to follow for even someone who is completely unfamiliar with the ideas. However, this does not stop him from discussing advanced topics in great length. The book is well-researched and gives a thorough account of the biggest questions that remain for AI researchers today.
Overall, an excellent read. Great for anyone interested in technology, artificial intelligence, or existential risks.
