A timely and important book that explores the societal and ethical implications of artificial intelligence as we approach the cusp of a fourth industrial revolution George Zarkadakis explores one of humankinds oldest love-hate relationships: our ties with artificial intelligence, or AI. He traces AIs origins in ancient myth, through literary classics like Frankenstein to todays science fiction blockbusters, arguing that a fascination with AI is hardwired into the human psyche. He explains AIs history, technology, and potential; its manifestations in intelligent machines; its connections to neurology and consciousness, as well asperhaps most tellinglywhat AI reveals about us as human beings. In Our Own Image argues that we are on the brink of a fourth industrial revolutionpoised to enter the age of artificial intelligence as science fiction becomes science fact. Ultimately, Zarkadakis observes, the fate of AI has profound implications for the future of science and humanity itself.
