From the Back Cover

Artificial intelligence touches nearly every part of your day. While you may initially assume that technology such as smart speakers and digital assistants are the extent of it, AI has in fact rapidly become a general-purpose technology, reverberating across industries including transportation, healthcare, financial services, and many more. In our modern era, an understanding of AI and its possibilities for your organization is essential for growth and success.

Artificial Intelligence Basics has arrived to equip you with a fundamental, timely grasp of AI and its impact. Author Tom Taulli provides an engaging, non-technical introduction to important concepts such as machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing (NLP), robotics, and more. In addition to guiding you through real-world case studies and practical implementation steps, Taulli uses his expertise to expand on the bigger questions that surround AI. These include societal trends, ethics, and future impact AI will have on world governments, company structures, and daily life.

Google, Amazon, Facebook, and similar tech giants are far from the only organizations on which artificial intelligence has had―and will continue to have―an incredibly significant result. AI is the present and the future of your business as well as your home life. Strengthening your prowess on the subject will prove invaluable to your preparation for the future of tech, and Artificial Intelligence Basics is the indispensable guide that you’ve been seeking.

5.0 out of 5 stars AI Explained for the Non-Technical Business Leader
By Amazon Customer on September 23, 2019
Had the opportunity to knock this out in one weekend -- Tom is a tech entrepreneur and fantastic Forbes contributor.

For any executives or decision-makers out there kicking the tires on an AI project or frankly for anyone interested in this fascinating technology and how it can improve their operation, check this one out.

It's an introduction to AI written from a non-technical perspective, so personally right up my alley -- and I know there are many business leaders and entrepreneurs in a similar spot.

A great takeaway right from the outset of the book: "Soon, the information contained in this book won't be merely a topic of interest; it will be a prerequisite for participation in the modern economy."
A value-add for sure.

5.0 out of 5 stars Artificial Intelligence Explained in Plain English
By Amazon Customer on August 26, 2019
I've been in the tech industry for more than 20 years and the buzzwords that have exploded around AI over the past few have left us all confused...until now. Tom Taulli breaks down the industry jargon in simple terms so that you can actually understand the history behind the AI movement and how terms like machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and big data all fit together. His writing is clearly organized, and he provides the examples that anyone needs to understand how AI and its associated technologies will shape the future. Highly recommended!
