Janelle Shane will speak about and sign her new book, You Look Like a Thing and I Love You: How Artificial Intelligence Works and Why It's Making the World a Weirder Place, on Wednesday, February 19th at 7:30pm.
About the Book:
We rely on AI every day for recommendations, for translations, and to put cat ears on our selfies. We also trust 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? You Look Like a Thing and I Love You is a smart, often hilarious introduction to the most interesting science of our time, and shows how these programs learn, fail, and adapt — and how they reflect the best and worst of humanity.
