AI Thought Leaders choose books that have impacted them

23 Sep

A few days ago Richard Foster-Fletcher 🌎 asked 15 AI leaders and influencers to choose a recent book that has impacted them the most. The answers ranged from books on Machine Learning coding, to AI Ethics and the future of AI, and even some visionary fiction.

Here is my own choice: Max Tegmark‘s Life 3.0 (which, by chance, appeared 2 more times in this list!).

My book choice: Max Tegmark’s Life 3.0

If I were to name a book that deeply impacted me from any decade, it would have been very difficult. Nevertheless, the following 3 books from 1991 – 1993 spring to mind:

Connectionist Approaches to Natural Language Processing

Subsymbolic Natural Language Processing: An Integrated Model of Scripts, Lexicon and Memory

Thank you to all the others who contributed to Richard’s list, as they have definitely enriched my own reading wishlist!
