Thought Stack: Mental Models and Book Shorts


Aug 3, 2017

When you hear the term Artificial Intelligence, what’s image pops in your mind? Is it a Terminator-style doomsday scenario or maybe a bit more optimistic?

For this Book Short, we are covering The Essential Turing by Alan Turing.

To help us make sense of the book, we've brought in AI expert, Dr. Shalini Ananda, who teaches us three things:

  1. Who is Alan Turing and why is he important for AI?
  2. What are some of the limitation in developing an AI platform?
  3. Where do you see AI benefiting our lives in the near future?

Hopefully, this gives you a glimpse of what goes on behind the scenes at companies such as Google, Facebook, and all of the startups pushing the boundaries of machine intelligence.
