'I can't think of a better way to learn about artificial intelligence, and I've never had so much fun along the way' Adam Grant, New York Times bestselling author of Originals and Option B AI is the technology of the future, but how does it actually work?

A hilarious, transporting look under the hood of the technology that's changing the world - and why it's dumber than we thinkYou Look Like a Thing and I Love You is one of the best pickup lines ever . . . according to an artificial intelligence trained by scientist Janelle Shane, creator of the popular blog AI Weirdness.

She makes silly AIs that learn how to name paint colors, create the best recipes, and even flirt (badly) with humans - all to understand the technology that governs so much of our human lives.

We rely on AI every day for recommendations, for rust AI with matters of life and death, on the road and in our hospitals.

But how smart is AI really . . . and how does it solve problems, understand humans, and drive self-driving cars?This hilarious introduction to the most interesting science of our time, shows us how these programs learn, fail, and adapt - and how they reflect both the best and the worst of humanity.
