This book takes a pragmatic and hype–free approach to explaining artificial intelligence and how it can be utilised by businesses today. At the core of the book is a framework, developed by the author, which describes in non–technical language the eight core capabilities of Artificial Intelligence (AI). Each of these capabilities, ranging from image recognition, through natural language processing, to prediction, is explained using real–life examples and how they can be applied in a business environment. It will include interviews with executives who have successfully implemented AI as well as CEOs from AI vendors and consultancies.
AI is one of the most talked about technologies in business today. It has the ability to deliver step–change benefits to organisations and enables forward–thinking CEOs to rethink their business models or create completely new businesses. But most of the real value of AI is hidden behind marketing hyperbole, confusing terminology, inflated expectations and dire warnings of ‘robot overlords’. Any business executive that wants to know how to exploit AI in their business today is left confused and frustrated.
As an advisor in Artificial Intelligence, Andrew Burgess regularly comes face–to–face with business executives who are struggling to cut through the hype that surrounds AI. The knowledge and experience he has gained in advising them, as well as working as a strategic advisor to AI vendors and consultancies, has provided him with the skills to help business executives understand what AI is and how they can exploit its many benefits. Through the distilled knowledge included in this book business leaders will be able to take full advantage of this most disruptive of technologies and create substantial competitive advantage for their companies.
Andrew Burgess: A management consultant, author and speaker with over 25 years’ experience, Andrew is considered an authority on innovative and disruptive technologies including artificial intelligence and robotic process automation. He is a former CTO who has run sourcing advisory firms and built automation practices, and now advises senior executives on creating value from AI.

About 30% of the content of the book is ok but there is a lot of filler, does an "executive" trying to understand AI really need several pages on what forms a business case? Lots of rather unnecessary diagrams that appear to be space filler. Also some of the examples used, is it just me or does anyone really think Amazon and Netflix have "powerful recommendation engines". I can't be the only person to get from Amazon, "you bought a ladder maybe you would like to buy a ladder". These examples do AI a disservice as suggesting because you watched Rambo you might like Rambo 2 is not AI. But the real killer for me in the end was a book promoting all the benefits and capabilities of AI doesn't appear to have been spell checked. Smells of a rushed job.

Great book. Not technical so very different from many such books, BUT, full of substance and a sound approach to considering how Ai might solve your problems, backed up by an approach to implement it.

I found this book a clear and comprehensive introduction to AI. The real world examples help paint a very clear picture for this complicated subject. Would highly recommend to anyone with a vague interest in AI. Great read!
