How will AI evolve and what major innovations are on the horizon? What will its impact be on the job market, economy, and society? What is the path toward human-level machine intelligence? What should we be concerned about as artificial intelligence advances?

Martin has wide-ranging conversations with twenty-three of the world's foremost researchers and entrepreneurs working in AI and robotics: Demis Hassabis (DeepMind), Ray Kurzweil (Google), Geoffrey Hinton (Univ. of Toronto and Google), Rodney Brooks (Rethink Robotics), Yann LeCun (Facebook) , Fei-Fei Li (Stanford and Google), Yoshua Bengio (Univ. of Montreal), Andrew Ng (AI Fund), Daphne Koller (Stanford), Stuart Russell (UC Berkeley), Nick Bostrom (Univ. of Oxford), Barbara Grosz (Harvard), David Ferrucci (Elemental Cognition), James Manyika (McKinsey), Judea Pearl (UCLA), Josh Tenenbaum (MIT), Rana el Kaliouby (Affectiva), Daniela Rus (MIT), Jeff Dean (Google), Cynthia Breazeal (MIT), Oren Etzioni (Allen Institute for AI), Gary Marcus (NYU), and Bryan Johnson (Kernel).

There is no hype in this book. Everyone of the 23 interviews is with a deeply knowledgeable and thoughtful subject matter expert who responds to basic and fundamentally important questions about AI capabilities, AI limitations, trajectories for directions and progress, and their personal views on a few key societal impact issues.
The beautiful thing about this book is that-- aside from the author Martin Ford's intro (1st chapter) and summary (last chapter), all of the speaking is done by the experts themselves, in their voice, with their own personal way of explaining core concepts, and their own personal views of social issues and impacts.
Congratulations to Martin Ford for bringing this book to the world, so that we can all have such direct and intimate access to the the carefully stated and well written thoughts of these extraordinary collection of people who are all so deeply knowledgeable about AI (including past, present and future aspects of AI).
I have been following this topic- very actively-- for over 35 years--- and even with all of that background, I find this a highly informative and delightful read. If you are not a specialist in this field, and you want a reliable and high quality way to get introduced to the big ideas and the big issues, this is a must read.
Even if you are a specialist in the field, you will probably enjoy seeing the way that some of the world's foremost experts in these areas explain some of the basic and core concepts.
This is NOT a book of hype. This is NOT a book that will tell you have to immediately revamp your business strategy. This IS a book that helps you understand the big and important ideas- but in very clear and easy to understand language. Through the interviews, the book clearly explains the foundational concepts and issues, both technological and social, and gives you a very good way to understand the current situation with AI capability and the directions for ongoing capability development.
For instance, Rana el Kaliouby can make AI read your mind at your next job interview - who'd know? Stuart J. Russell scared the living daylights out of me, because he thinks we have to rethink a lot of stuff about our jobs and whether AI takes over a lot of things. But AI is also going to cure a lot of illnesses - so there are some BIG wins for everybody with AI.
I'm stoked, scared, and ready to step into the future with AI. This book WILL excite you about what AI can do, even and sometimes it will scare you. They just have to get AI done right - so that it HELPS us. Martin Ford asks the experts all the BIG questions we need to know about. I can recommend this book.

The drawback is that the basic questions get repeated across all interviews.
