Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence - Ajay Agra


Recommended Posts

Really good read on the current state of AI from an economist's view.  Not a technical book at all, so it is a quick and easy read. It goes into what AI can/can't currently do and what the effects will be in certain industries and businesses and on the economy as a whole.  As well as a look at where it is going in the short to medium term.  They emphasize that current machine learning is not AGI (artificial general intelligence), there is no creativity, ability to make value judgments, etc, so humans are almost always (but not always) needed to work along side it.  Which is why they use the term "prediction machines" rather than AI to refer to it.
