Good for Starters

A good book to get introduced to the realms of AI. The last two chapters were less interesting than the first 4.

Great initiative on AI !!!

If you are looking to know the basics and know what is AI and the role it is playing in the present world, this book will help you. The episodes are categorised and explained in the best possible way. Could provide more information but the writer limited it to the basic so that everyone can understand. If you are interested in tech and AI this book is for you

informative and debunking ignorant myths about AI

the motion picture version of AI is different from the AI used in modern technology and the differences are explained , the origin and the possible destination of AI discussed . a basic intro class into AI for the uninitiated

Gives a basic idea about pros and cons of AI

Didn't go into the depth. You may read it to get a basic yet informative idea about how AI is going to take shape in future.

Just Scratches the Surface!

If you know absolutely nothing about AI and the ways it has recently been employed and tested then this could well be a decent way to pique your interest in what has to be one of the most fascinating technologies of our times. I, personally, know very, very little about AI but this series didn't take me any further or point me in any new directions.

It is an amazing concept to me, computers capable of making decisions that the humans that work with them have no way of explaining, it's real sci-fi stuff.

This series though didn't get me any further, I didn't have high hopes given its brevity but I had hoped for a little more. I was also a bit disappointed in some of the production values with some of the audio used being of poor quality and some of the speakers weren't the best.

So, I would recommend it if you literally have no knowledge whatsoever of AI and its uses but otherwise, you're unlikely to get much out of this one.

Average Summary

Average Summary of the current AI state, rushed through many aspects and never really gripping the substance of the issues. Well read though

annoying incidental music

interesting topic, but listening on headphones the occasional tinkly music while people are talking made this too annoying to listen to, for me at least, though others may not notice or mind. Please Audible, keep the jingles between the narrator's, don't add occasional pointless music while they are talking.

Ai

well as I'm not a big tech buff certainly gave me so much more information to think about in a fast moving tech world.
Great listen and will no doubt listen again

Great Introduction to the subject

Informative and entertaining, with useful cases for specific applications. The programme covers a wide range of applications from military, stock market to Art.

Very Interesting. Quite scary.

Interesting look at different areas that are being improved by the use of AI. Also shows the risks of using it and how its not always what its cracked up to be.

why is it so important to develop AI?

No clear definition of what AI is and is not. No-one seemed to ask why AI is being developed to do the things it is being asked to do, and to become more human in the process. Why it should write music, create films or other video content, or write articles. My sense is that a lot of this is being done because we can, not that there is a real reason to, a need to be met, or a problem to be solved.

It often came across as a solution looking for a problem. We have excellent human composers, journalists, drivers, film and video makers, etc. Why do we want to create intelligence to do what we can already do so well and is a creative expreasion of what it is to be human? We already do not understand a lot of what AI does or how it does it. We will not ultimately be able to control it. When AI achieves human equivalence it will be game over for us. What is the point of humans if we want machines to run our lives and do everything for us, even to the point of making love and procreation? It seems to suggest that a physical human/AI connection would be a positive one, but doesn't stop to ask what we would lose by so doing.

Human intellect and capability is already atrophying through lack of use, and looks set to decline further. And we seem to be sowing the seeds of our own destruction, allegedly in the name of progress. This is what I hoped it would explore - why this would be progress.

I was hoping this would be a more investigative piece of work, but sadly not enough for me.

glossary

you can't really complain about anything that's made and developed for your attention for free it's informative however its barely scratches the surface of a topic that you can go great lengths into

Lightweight and Superficial

There’s a great deal to be said about this topic. Unfortunately, this series just scratches the surface.
