Among Intelligent Machines
CosiCosa / Ana Seixas
This non-fiction book gives a very wide and thorough picture on how Artificial Intelligence has been shaping our world and societies ever since the beginning of our civilization.
Through colourful and playful illustrations, it gives simple but exhaustive explanations on how AI machines were invented, their evolution throughout time and how they’re designed and built.
It also raises ethical and social questions: why we need to make the industry more inclusive, and how intelligent machines shape our minds and change our behaviours. The book analyses the limits of technology, and what it means for our freedom and our essence as human beings.
