About the Author
Kevin Scott spends most days trying to put the right words in the right order. He graduated from the University of Glasgow Creative Writing MLitt programme with distinction in 2013, and was subsequently shortlisted for the Sceptre Prize. His short stories have been published in a number of magazines in the UK and US. He also previously edited the literary journal From Glasgow to Saturn and is a (currently lapsed) member of the Glasgow collective G2 Writers. This is his first novel. Away from creative writing he works as a journalist, where he is a business correspondent for The Herald. He lives in Glasgow with his pregnant (at the time of writing) wife, and son.
"Gerrish offers a fresh and contemporary look at AI, machine learning, and deep learning by presenting the topics in light of how the technologies have surfaced in familiar memes like the Jeopardy TV game show, Netflix, video games like StarCraft, board games like Go, chess, Sudoku, and also self-driving cars."
--Inside Big Data

"An excellent primer for the engineer interested in putting AI in context."
--E&T Magazine

"If you want to discuss recent AI achievements with your students, such as how self-driving cars work, how Watson beat two of the best human Jeopardy! players, how NetFlix uses AI to recommend movies to people, and how AlphaGo beat one of the best human Go players, this book is for you."
