Book Beginnings: Artificial Intelligence: Rise of the Lightspeed Learners by Charles Jennings.

BOOK BEGINNINGS ON FRIDAYS
THANKS FOR JOINING ME ON FRIDAYS FOR BOOK BEGINNING FUN!

MY BOOK BEGINNING



After decades of academic activity, AIs have escaped their lab cages and are swarming out into the real world. With consequences for all of us.

Artificial Intelligence: Rise of the Lightspeed Learners by Charles Jennings. This new book about AI is written for a general audiences. It is short and mesmerizing.



Please join me every Friday to share the first sentence (or so) of the book you are reading, along with your initial thoughts about the sentence, impressions of the book, or anything else the opener inspires. Please remember to include the title of the book and the author’s name.

EARLY BIRDS & SLOWPOKES: This weekly post goes up Thursday evening for those who like to get their posts up and linked early on. But feel free to add a link all week.

SOCIAL MEDIA: If you are on Twitter, Instagram, or other social media, please post using the hash tag #BookBeginnings. I try to follow all Book Beginnings participants on whatever interweb sites you are on, so please let me know if I have missed any and I will catch up.

YOUR BOOK BEGINNING



TIE IN: The Friday 56 hosted by Freda's Voice is a natural tie in with this event and there is a lot of cross over, so many people combine the two. The idea is to post a teaser from page 56 of the book you are reading and share a link to your post. Find details and the Linky for your Friday 56 post on Freda’s Voice.


MY FRIDAY 56

Transportation, as far as I can tell, is one sector where the benefits of AI far outweigh the risks. In our new AI world, there will be autonomous drones – and smart ones.

Scary though...if AIs escape and we become their victims. Argh!

I know very little about AI - so maybe I should find out more, especially as this book is aimed at general audiences.

Sounds like a very curious premise for a book! I like a lot of dystopian or speculative fiction books - may need to check this one out :)

Scarely AI thoughts! My book this week is an odd one by JP Donleavy, "The Lady Who Liked Clean Restrooms". It's funny and sad. https://booktapestry.blogspot.com/2019/07/book-beginning3.html
