Reviews

"A compelling and wonderfully readable analysis of why computers won't replace mathematicians, but why the two together are superior to either on its own. A rallying-cry for real intelligence in the age of algorithms and artificial intelligence."--Ian Stewart, renowned mathematician and author of What's the Use
"Math needs more demystifiers, and Junaid Mubeen is here to lift back the veil to show the inner workings of math and mathematicians. This book importantly shows that computers and AI do not make mathematicians redundant. In fact, Mubeen uses the advances and stumbling blocks in AI to illuminate the crucial contribution that human mathematicians continue to make. I recommend this to anyone who thinks--or knows someone who thinks--that AI will make the study of math redundant. AI is powerful, but human thinking is differently powerful, and Junaid Mubeen deftly shows us how."--Eugenia Cheng, author of X + Y: A Mathematician's Manifesto for Rethinking Gender
