Summary
  • "Zarkadakis explores one of humankind's oldest love-hate relationships--our ties with artificial intelligence, or AI. He traces AI's origins in ancient myth, through literary classics like Frankenstein to today's sci-fi blockbusters, arguing that a fascination with AI is hardwired into the human psyche. The narrative delves into AI's history, technology, and potential; its manifestations in intelligent machines; its connections to neurology and consciousness, and finally--perhaps most tellingly--what AI reveals about us as human beings. In Our Own Image argues that we are on the brink of a fourth industrial revolution--as science fiction becomes science fact, the world is poised to enter the Age of Artificial Intelligence. Ultimately, as Zarkadakis observes, the fate of AI has profound implications for the future of science and humanity itself."--Jacket
