    What is AIQ? How does it work? Most importantly, how can it help us?

    Two leading data scientists offer an up-close and user-friendly look at artificial intelligence and how to harness its power for a better world.

    'A positive and entertaining look at the great potential unlocked by marrying human creativity with powerful machines.'
    Steven D. Levitt, co-author of Freakonomics

    Dozens of times per day, we all interact with intelligent machines that are constantly learning from the wealth of data now available to them. These machines, from smart phones to talking robots to self-driving cars, are remaking the world in the twenty first century in the same way that the Industrial Revolution remade the world in the nineteenth.

    AIQ is based on a simple premise: if you want to understand the modern world, then you have to know a little bit of the mathematical language spoken by intelligent machines. AIQ will teach you that language but in an unconventional way, anchored in stories rather than equations.
