Who Is This Book For?

This book is for anyone who wants to join the AI conversation happening in their workplace, in their social media feeds, or in their community. This book is for anyone who wants to learn about AI so they can start harnessing its power while avoiding its pitfalls. This book is the first step in a journey of continuous learning about AI, and it’s a critical step to take, whether you’re apprehensive or enthusiastic.

What Is This Book About?

This book is a friendly primer on the basic concepts of AI, how it’s already snuck into our daily lives, and what we need to know to prepare for the future. The book is divided into three parts, each featuring two chapters:

  • In the first part, Introduction to AI, readers will delve into the definition of AI and go on a brief tour through its history.
  • In the second part, AI Technologies, readers will learn the fundamentals of machine learning and its powerful subfield, deep learning.
  • In the third part, Important Considerations in AI, readers will be exposed to the benefits, concerns, myths, and truths of AI.

The book concludes with some final thoughts from the author, appendices with more detailed diagrams, and a glossary with over 80 terms that everyone should know.
