Description - You Look Like a Thing and I Love You by Janelle Shane

AI is everywhere. It powers the autocorrect function of your iPhone, helps Google Translate understand the complexity of language, and interprets your behaviour to decide which of your friends' Facebook posts you most want to see. In the coming years, it'll perform medical diagnoses and drive your car - and maybe even help our authors write the first lines of their novels. But how does it actually work?

Scientist and engineer, Janelle Shane, is the go-to contributor about computer science for the New York Times, Slate, and the New Yorker. Through her hilarious experiments, real-world examples, and illuminating cartoons, she explains how AI understands our world, and what it gets wrong. More than just a working knowledge of AI, she hands readers the tools to be skeptical about claims of a smarter future.

A comprehensive study of the cutting-edge technology that will soon power our world, YOU LOOK LIKE A THING AND I LOVE YOU is an accessible and hilarious exploration of the future of technology and society. It's ASTROPHYSICS FOR PEOPLE IN A HURRY meets THING EXPLAINER: an approachable guide to a fascinating scientific topic, presented with clarity, levity, and brevity by an expert in the field with a powerful and growing platform.

Buy You Look Like a Thing and I Love You by Janelle Shane from Australia's Online Independent Bookstore, Boomerang Books.
