In this timely audiobook, NBC science journalist Jacob Ward warns that the artificial intelligence used to improve information processing and decision-making may also be manipulating our subconscious minds and enabling our worst instincts. The author's rich baritone voice and phrasing are full of appealing character. Totally authentic and connected to his writing, his performance is supremely effective. Ward says that we are at the early stages of learning about AI's possibilities and hazards. Facebook algorithms that influence tastes and buying decisions have gotten our attention, but what about AI programs that allow authoritarian governments to influence citizens' perceptions and political preferences? Full of fascinating science and cultural context, this audio will make people be more wary about how powerful interests might use AI to alter our mental habits and even what it means to be human.
