Editorial Reviews

Review

If you think the tidal wave of digital disruption is over, think again. Kelly and Hamm pull back the curtain on the next great wave of the computing revolution, which will transform how every industry and business operates in the near future. (David Rogers, author of The Network Is Your Customer: Five Strategies to Thrive in a Digital Age)

As Watson's win against Jeopardy! champion Ken Jennings showed, IBM's research labs are doing some of the world's most revolutionary research in artificial intelligence and related fields. In this short and very accessible book, the authors outline this work and the wave of 'cognitive computing' that is about the break. (James Hendler, Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute)

This book will give the careful reader an understanding of the immense possibilities offered by the intelligent collaboration of man and machine; armed with this knowledge, readers can then tackle the difficult but essential task of ensuring that these new cognitive technologies will, in practice, be devoted to bettering our lives. (Ralph Gomory, Stern School of Business, New York University)

Technological change, from new materials to smart systems, is accelerating, and the latest advances fuel others. John E. Kelly and Steve Hamm show how these technologies will transform our jobs, our cities―even how we think. (Stephen Baker, author of Final Jeopardy: Man vs. Machine and the Quest to Know Everything)

IBM's Watson is one of the most important technological breakthroughs in decades, and this is the go-to book for understanding what this new technology is all about and how it will change your life. (Tyler Cowen, George Mason University, author of Average Is Over)

This book is a gem... Highly recommended. (CHOICE)
