Faking it

by Toby Walsh | 02 November 2023
Hardback
'Refreshingly clear-eyed . Faking It is an insightful and intelligent book that's a must for those looking for facts about AI hype.' - Books+Publishing 'AI will be as big a game-changer as the smart phone and the personal computer - or bigger! This book will help you navigate the revolution.' - Dr Karl Kruszelnicki Artificial intelligence is, as the name suggests, artificial and fundamentally different to human intelligence. Yet often the goal of AI is to fake human intelligence. This deceit has been there from the very beginning. We've been trying to fake it since Alan Turing answered the question 'Can machines think?' by proposing that machines pretend to be humans. Now we are starting to build AI that truly deceives us. Powerful AIs such as ChatGPT can convince us they are intelligent and blur the distinction between what is real and what is simulated. In reality, they lack true understanding, sentience and common sense. But this doesn't mean they can't change the world. Can AI systems ever be creative? Can they be moral? What can we do to ensure they are not harmful? In this fun and fascinating book, Professor Toby Walsh explores all the ways AI fakes it, and what this means for humanity - now and in the future.
