Introduction

1

Fourth Industrial Revolution

To understand more of the Fourth Industrial Revolution, I suggest the book “Shaping the Fourth Industrial Revolution” by Founder and Executive Chairman of World Economic Forum, Klaus Schwab

Kai Fu Lee

Kai Fu Lee, who wrote the bestseller “ A.I. Superpowers” is among the many who share this view. See the interview with him as a reference: https://fortune.com/2019/01/10/automation-replace-jobs/

What is AI?

3

AI definition

This definition was introduced by Max Tegmark in the Book Life 3.0

4

The three types of AI

This IBM article is one of many that covers the difference between the three types of AI: https://www.ibm.com/blogs/systems/ai-machine-learning-and-deep-learning-whats-the-difference

5

Deep Learning

If you are looking for a more technical approach to Deep Learning, the I suggest you read the book Deep Learning (MIT Press Essential Knowledge series) by John D. Kelleher

6

Deep Learning

You can find the full definition at this Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Intuition

7

Deep Learning

This research from the three Stanford professors Andrea Stevenson Won, Jeremy N. Bailenson, Joris H. Janssen shows as an example of why Deep Learning is superior to IT technologies in the most complex area, non-verbal communication. https://vhil.stanford.edu/mm/2014/won-ieeeac-nonverbal-predicts-learning.pdf

Deep learning and intuition

Carlos Perez describes the concept of Deep Learning and intuition well in his book “Artificial Intuition: The Improbable Deep Learning Revolution.”

9

The knowledge pyramid

The concept is described on this Wikipedia page: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/DIKW_pyramid

10

The future of AI

Superintelligence by Nick Bostrom is one of the books that work with this perspective.

11

Mensa

You can read more on criteria for joining Mensa on Wikipedia: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mensa_International or on their website https://www.us.mensa.org/learn/about/

Kevin Kelly

Kevin Kelly is a futurist and best-selling author. He explains the concept well at this TED talk. https://www.ted.com/talks/kevin_kelly_how_ai_can_bring_on_a_second_industrial_revolution/transcript

Max Tegmark

The three concepts of intelligence is explained by Max Tegmark in the book Life 3.0

14

Artificial General Intelligence

This Wikipedia page explains the concept in more detail and has links to more literature on the subject. https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Artificial_general_intelligence

15

Artificial General Intelligence

This Forbes article elaborates on what could drive us towards Artificial General Intelligence, and what could inhibit us from reaching this stage, https://www.forbes.com/sites/cognitiveworld/2019/06/10/how-far-are-we-from-achieving-artificial-general-intelligence/

16

Artificial General Intelligence

Vincent C. Müller is a Professor of Philosophy from Eindhoven University of Technology, and Nick Bostrom from the University of Oxford made an interesting expert survey on when we can expect to reach Artificial Super Intelligence. It is called “Future Progress in Artificial Intelligence: A Survey of Expert Opinion”, and you can download it as PDF here: https://philpapers.org/archive/MLLFPI

Computer Generated Images

If you are a tech expert and what to know how to work with Image Recognition, then I suggest you read this Programming Computer Vision with Python by Jan Erik Solem

20

Machine Learning for Text

In my view, the best book on Text Mining is by Charu C. Aggarwal. It is written for developers and is called “Machine Learning for Text.”

21

Natural Language Processing

InNatural Language Processing is a topic that you must have a technical background to understand. I don’t know now any non-technical books on the matter. So, the best tech book, in my opinion, is “Introduction to Natural Language Processing (Adaptive Computation and Machine Learning series)” by the Georgia Tech professor Jacob Eisenstein.

22

Natural Language Processing

Natural Language Processing is also a topic that is only approached in the literature from a tech perspective. I find the best book to be “Handbook of Natural Language Processing” by Nitin Indurkhya.

23

Recommendation Engines

The book on Recommendation Engines that I can recommend the most is a part of The MIT Press Essential Knowledge series. It is simply called “Recommendation Engines”, and is written by Michael Schrage

24

Predictive Analytics

Predictive Analytics is so widely used that there is now a book available in the “For Dummies series”. It is called “Predictive Analytics For Dummies”, and is a great place to start. It is written by Anasse Bari.

25

Prescriptive Analytic

Prescriptive Analytics A Complete Guide is, in my view, the best book to read if you need an introduction to the topic. It is written by Gerardus Blokdyk.

Traffic and human errors

The US National Highway Traffic Safety Administration estimates that 92% to 96% of all traffic accidents was caused by human errors. The data can be found here. https://www.digitaltrends.com/cars/2016-nhtsa-fatality-report/. The global number of leather traffic accidents was estimated to be 1.3 million, according to the WHO.
