Reviews

With refreshing simplicity, Fry explains what AI, machine learning and complicated algorithms really mean.
Fascinating and funny. I learned something on every page.--Tom Chivers
An action-packed read during which you will be outraged, provoked, and challenged.--Cathy O'Neil, author of Weapons of Math Destruction
This short, sharp book on the power and dangers of algorithms offers one of the clearest explanations of a complex subject.
Hannah Fry is one of the best STEM explainers and popularizers today.--"Top Ten Technology Books of 2018"
For a reader unfamiliar with the technical aspects of AI, this book offers among the best lay explanations of how algorithms work.
Hannah Fry makes algorithms sound not only quite interesting but an idea that we must understand better as they dominate more and more of our daily lives in ways we see and in many ways we don't.
Mixing mathematics and storytelling, this book asks the big questions about algorithms and humans--and their future together.
A well-constructed tour of technology and its discontents?timely, too, given the increasing prominence of AI in our daily lives.
A lucid and timely analysis.
