Nice insight on some truly important topics

The format takes a little getting used to in audio - interviews, so the names are repeated ad nauseum, but there are some nice insights from key players on some truly important topics

ok book, great minds of ai, repetitive/wasteful

Important subject matter, some real luminaries, good insights but half this book is spent on 5 repeated questions that the author is excited about, rather than digging deep into the vast experience and passion of his interviewees. becomes wasteful and repetitive

Great value. Super interesting and accessible.

I’m an AI enthusiast about to begin a CS and AI degree. I found this to be a great listen over a series of long car drives.

A collection of interviews

Right in the introduction, the author brags about how he picked interview subjects based on their gender. It's not only disrespectful to the readers, but also to the people you're interviewing. He does not tell us who was selected for this, so this puts everyone under the cloud of having been interviewed to satisfy the author's arbitrary quota. There is also a lot of harping on 'bias' in AI, which is assumed and never demonstrated.

The interview format is a bit awkward, because there are two people speaking. Every question is preceded with "Martin Ford" and every answer with the name of the interviewee. But once you get used to it, it's actually alright.

There are some very good interviews, but the work as a whole is not something that can be recommended.
