AI Resources

Artificial Intelligence (AI) is poised to transform business processes as we know them. Organizations that fail to adopt AI risk falling behind. While interest in AI is widespread, many don’t know where to start. Below are a few resources that we recommend:

The Innovators: How a Group of Hackers, Geniuses and Geeks Created the Digital Revolution by Walter Isaacson

Broader topic, but great/easy read. Start with the last chapter to give you a perspective on AI and then start from the front.

Master Algorithm by Pedro Domingos

Provides a good understanding of how machine learning works from a non-technical perspective.

2nd Machine Age: Work, Progess and Prosperity in the Time of Brilliant Technologies by Erik Brynjolfson and Andrew McAfee

In order to get a good handle on AI today, it is helpful to get a grounding in past “revolutions” and the evolution/history of AI. Very helpful book.

Machine, Platform, Crowd: Harnessing our Digital Future by Erik Brynjolfson and Andrew McAfee

Their newest book out this summer. Good discussion of disruptive technologies and how to leverage with humans in the loop.
