This book was a very interesting read. I hate math, yet this book makes math look amazing! If I had as much fun learning math as I did reading this book I would do math equations just for fun. I recommend this book to any psychology, sociology, mathematics, philosophy, or romantic person. This book is crazy good. Do read.

An eye-opening read. Prof. Fry examines AI/machine learning in a variety of fields (e.g. medicine, justice, art), highlighting positives and negatives of their use. Being a fan of hers, I had already heard quite a few of the stories, but the written format allows for more detail. Also interesting - it was her voice I heard in my head while reading.
Technology has advanced since this book was written in 2018, but I believe the conclusions remain valid. Any savings/enhancements due to these technologies likely come at a cost, and society needs to keep this in mind when judging their worth. Also, many of these advancements work best in conjunction with humans, not by replacing them.… (mere)

Enjoyable read. Good overview of how and where algorithms are used today.

Some of the examples of seem to portray algorithms as a solution where they're not really. e.g. detecting misdemeanors to reduce more serious crimes seems to really be detecting poor people and pushing them out of public spaces.

Wish there were some focus on social media and medical mis/dis-information, and racism.

Interesting and written so someone not skilled in math (me) can follow easily. Only 111 pages, but for the even shorter version, view the author's TED talk.
