“Artificial intelligence” is the buzz word of the day. You’ve no doubt read your fair share of media hype either proclaiming doom and gloom where robots seize our jobs or prophesying a new utopia where AI cures all our human problems.
The reality is somewhere in between. Unless you work in the field, you might be wondering how AI is used, or even what “AI” really is. Using concrete examples and engaging storytelling, our book Applied Artificial Intelligence helps you understand how these powerful emerging technologies can be used in your own life and work.
From movie recommendations on Netflix, to partner suggestions on dating apps, AI and machine learning already impact your daily life. Even the routes you choose to commute to work and which friends’ posts you see on Facebook or Twitter are heavily governed by sophisticated algorithms. But machine intelligence isn’t just for consumers. In industries ranging from energy and manufacturing, to gaming and retail, to marketing and healthcare, the leading companies in the world are leveraging AI for a competitive edge.
In our Applied Artificial Intelligence book, we highlight insights and stories from the world’s top executives, engineers, and researchers who are successfully applying AI in their fields, whether it be beauty & fashion, retail & e-commerce, gaming and entertainment, or telecommunications and financial services.
