fails the Turing test

No informational content that you couldn't get from general media articles. Gave up on the neural networks book as it sounded like the author didn't really know what a neutral network is.

Not a bad intro, but fairly superficial

Pretty good as an introductory overview, with a few interesting insights along the way. Not especially advanced and doesn't really explain how any of the stuff really works, so if you're looking for details, try elsewhere. This is more about applications of machine learning with a bit of futurology thrown in.

It is as informative as The Sun tabloid

You will find out a few interesting facts, but the remaining 85% of the book is just pure speculation. Author sounds like he read a few books on the topic, as opposed to being an expert. Book title is misleading, probably for marketing reasons. Book is mainly about AI developments and big data. Having said that, it was not total waste of time, but was kinda fun. Just like The Sun tabloid.

Misleading

I was hoping to learn something about machine learning but instead this book is a long series of unproven rants about privacy. The title is very misleading, the book very disappointing

  • Overall
    1 out of 5 stars

Repetitive, with little substance

All three authors repete the others statments. Most of what is said is conjecture. Alot of assumed correlation not factoring in the wider science.

Very Informative

I have learned a lot from it and will continue to go through it to learn even more from it as it does tend to become more lucid the more I go through it.

Comprehensive One

If you are interested in learning Machine Learning or wish to strengthen your understanding, you might be tempted to acquire this book. However, I will urge you to postpone such an impulse after considering the following:

Very Impressive

I'm experienced data miner and this book is really helpful. It might seem tough for newbies though. But very useful if you are trying to figure out pros and cons of different methods.

10% Technology 90% Why it’s bad

I purchased this book to learn about how AI, big data, data mining, etc. works. What I received was hours of technophobia and explanations of why no one should use the internet (and something about nano-bots destroying the world, I think), written in the form of a high school research paper.

While a section on ethics should be included in any literature about the use of technology, the title leads the buyer to believe that they will gain knowledge and understanding about the mechanics of AI - they will not.

I am thankful that Audible allowed me to return this book.

Global Warming?

I am a bit shocked at the claim of “we don’t really know what causes global warming” towards the end. It’s factually untrue.

Very shallow

I was excited about this book, but found it to be very shallow. I only listened to part I, and lost patience. It uses the same examples as many other books, but their discussion falls short. I will return this book.

Just watch a dozen YouTube videos instead

Pretty low level and at times naive interpretations of covered topics. Facebook topics were decent.

Not educational at all

First time I write a full review and feel sad that is a bad one however the title of this book is deceiving when compered to the context. Save your time and money by skipping this title

Never buy a book from this author

This author does not know anything about science, and definitively nothing about machine learning. It was a mistake to buy this book, the guy is just a technophobe. His level are conspirators and antivac promoters.

Highly recommend for all levels

This is a well-explained book on Deep Learning which covers a broad range of AI topics easily and engagingly. The writer does an excellent job of introducing, weaving together, then using concepts in an instantly usable way.
