The emergence of systems capable of independent reasoning and action raises serious questions about just whose interests they are permitted to serve, and what limits our society should place on their creation and use. Deep ethical questions that have bedeviled philosophers for ages will suddenly arrive on the steps of our courthouses.
And the answers may surprise you.
"The questions Kaplan explores are fascinating. . . . Artificial Intelligence is not a book I would normally pick up but I'm glad I did." We Make Money Not Art
Kaplan provides an insightful guide to understanding what is and what isn’t artificial intelligence, how it developed, and where it is likely going. Though it would have been rightfully ironic to have a computer-generated voice narrate, John Pruden proves a better fit (for now). His voice is crisp and articulate with a level of energy that borders on enthusiasm. Given the complexity of ideas abundant in this text, Pruden knows just where to place emphasis and to draw out an idea. Between Kaplan’s well-drawn prose and Pruden’s skill at vocally teasing out technical nuance, the production will help listeners feel more competent with the topic of artificial intelligence and even more comfortable with the phenomenon itself.
