When most of us think about Artificial Intelligence, our minds go straight to cyborgs, robots, and sci-fi thrillers where machines take over the world. But the truth is that AI is already among us. It exists in our smartphones, fitness trackers, and refrigerators that tell us when the milk will expire. In some ways, the future that people dreamed of at the World's Fair in the 1960s is already here. We're teaching our machines how to think like humans, and they're learning at an incredible rate.

In Thinking Machines, technology journalist Luke Dormehl takes us through the history of AI and reveals the role it plays in our everyday lives. Furthermore, he offers a glimpse of the incredible future that's much closer than many would imagine. This remarkable book invites you to marvel at what now seems commonplace and to reimagine what it means to be human in the face of accelerating machine intelligence.
