You Look Like a Thing and I Love You: How Artificial Intelligence Works and Why It's Making the World a Weirder Place

by Janelle Shane Author

Janelle Shane is the robot whisperer. She gives various AIs a list of something mundane, like recipes, cat names, Halloween costumes, Christmas carols, or pickup lines, and has them come up with their own variations. The results are awesomely weird, and she chronicles them (often paired with her charming illustrations) on her blog, AI Weirdness. Her book adds more depth and background—and plenty of reassurance that Skynet is not imminently ready to take over all systems on Earth. A super fun and fascinating read.
