The Top 20 Best Books Every AI Entrepreneur and Business Person Should Read Now

 

 

1.) The Future of Work: Robots, AI, and Automation

 

The Future of Work Robots, AI, and Automation

 

Robots, artificial intelligence, and driverless cars are no longer things of the distant future. They are with us today and will become increasingly common in coming years, along with virtual reality and digital personal assistants.

As these tools advance deeper into everyday use, they raise the question-how will they transform society, the economy, and politics?

If companies need fewer workers due to automation and robotics, what happens to those who once held those jobs and don’t have the skills for new jobs?

And since many social benefits are delivered through jobs, how are people outside the workforce for a lengthy period of time going to earn a living and get health care and social benefits?

4.) Human + Machine: Reimagining Work in the Age of AI

Human + Machine Reimagining Work in the Age of AI

 

Artificial intelligence is no longer just a futuristic notion. It’s here right now in software that senses what we need, supply chains that “think” in real time and robots that respond to changes in their environment.

Twenty-first-century pioneer companies are already using AI to innovate and grow fast. The bottom line is this: “Businesses that understand how to harness AI can surge ahead. Those that neglect it will fall behind.” 

Based on the authors’ experience and research with 1, 500 organizations, the book reveals how companies are using the new rules of AI to leap ahead on innovation and profitability, as well as what you can do to achieve similar results.

It describes six entirely new types of hybrid human + machine roles that every company must develop and it includes a “leader’s guide” with the five crucial principles required to become an AI-fueled business.


Human + Machine provides the missing and much-needed management playbook for success in our new age of AI.

5.) Beyond AI: Creating the Conscience of the Machine

 

Beyond AI Creating the Conscience of the Machine

 

Artificial intelligence (AI) is now advancing at such a rapid clip that it has the potential to transform our world in ways both exciting and disturbing. Computers have already been designed that are capable of driving cars, playing soccer, and finding and organizing information on the Web in ways that no human could.

With each new gain in processing power, will scientists soon be able to create supercomputers that can read a newspaper with understanding, or write a news story, or create novels, or even formulate laws?

And if machine intelligence advances beyond human intelligence, will we need to start talking about a computer’s intentions?

Prediction Machines - The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence

 

In Prediction Machines, three eminent economists recast the rise of AI as a drop in the cost of prediction. With this single, masterful stroke, they lift the curtain on the AI-is-magic hype and show how basic tools from economics provide clarity about the AI revolution and a basis for action by CEOs, managers, policymakers, investors and entrepreneurs. 


When AI is framed as a cheap prediction, its extraordinary potential becomes clear: Prediction is at the heart of making decisions under uncertainty. Our businesses and personal lives are riddled with such decisions.
Prediction tools increase productivity–operating machines, handling documents, communicating with customers.

15.) The Sentient Machine: The Coming Age of Artificial Intelligence

 

The Sentient Machine - The Coming Age of Artificial Intelligence

 

Artificial “machine” intelligence is playing an ever-greater role in our society. We are already using cruise control in our cars, automatic checkout at the drugstore, and are unable to live without our smartphones. The discussion around AI is polarized; people think either machine will solve all problems for everyone, or they will lead us down a dark, dystopian path into total human irrelevance.

Regardless of what you believe, the idea that we might bring forth intelligent creation can be intrinsically frightening. But what if our greatest role as humans so far is that of creators?

Ultimately, Husain challenges many of our societal norms and upends assumptions we hold about “the good life.”

17.) Are You a Machine?: The Brain, the Mind, And What It Means to Be Human

 

Are You a Machine - The Brain, the Mind, And What It Means to Be Human

 

Right now, someone in an artificial intelligence lab is fusing silicon circuitry in an attempt to engineer the human mind. In a hospital, a neurosurgeon is attempting to influence a patient’s emotions by firing electrical impulses into his brain. In a classroom, a teacher is explaining how neurons in the brain interact to generate thoughts, feelings, and decisions. 

The question of where consciousness comes from and how it works is likely the greatest mystery we face. Despite progress in our knowledge of the brain, we still don’t know how it allows us to do things like enjoying a sunset, solve a math problem, or use our imagination.

For those of us who have ever thought about issues of the mind or free will, these developments pose provocative questions.

18.) The Future of the Professions: How Technology Will Transform the Work of Human Experts

 

The Future of the Professions - How Technology Will Transform the Work of Human Experts

 

This book predicts the decline of today’s professions and introduces the people and systems that will replace them. In an internet-enhanced society, according to Richard Susskind and Daniel Susskind, we will neither need nor want doctors, teachers, accountants, architects, the clergy, consultants, lawyers, and many others, to work as they did in the 20th century.

The book raises profound policy issues, not least about employment (they envisage a new generation of ‘open-collared workers’) and about control over online expertise (they warn of new ‘gatekeepers’) – in an era when machines become more capable than human beings at most tasks.
