The Future of Machine Intelligence – eBook Review
I have read several of these short ebooks from O’Reilly Media, and even though most of them are interesting and informative, this one is quite in a league of its own. This is due in part to the very fascinating topic it covers – advanced machine intelligence – but also in no small measure to the very high reputation of the contributors to the volume. The ebook consists of several short chapters, each one of which is an interview with a machine intelligence luminary. The topic covered in this volume are extremely cutting edge, and the right time to read this book is now. The field moves so rapidly, that most likely in just a year or two this whole ebook will be outdated. The ebook is very well structured, and each chapter is introduced with a few key takeaway points. Weather you are a seasoned machine learning practitioner, or someone who just wants to get a glimpse into the current directions, this short publication will certainly capture your attention. Highly recommended.
