    Abstract

    More and more, artificial intelligence is taking over our lives.

    Voice-controlled assistants like Alexa and Siri, Amazon's recommendation engine, Google's search, self-driving cars, autonomous robots, and computers that diagnose diseases better than your doctor: they are all here already, whether we like it or not.

    As users and as citizens, we need to keep up.

    It is crucial for a democracy that we, as citizens, are able to understand the forces that control our lives, our futures and the futures of our children, and that we don't surrender control to a caste of AI priests that manage our societies in our name.

    This book wants to empower you to understand this new world and to make your own decisions.

    It explains neural networks, the core component of today's AI systems, in enough detail that you will be able to get a basic understanding, even of technical discussions and introductory research papers. You will be able to not only read about AI in magazines and news outlets with a new and deep understanding but also talk about it with the experts in the field and understand lectures on the topic.

    For students of the humanities, arts and social sciences, this book provides sufficient detail that you will be able to do meaningful research on the social impact of AI and actually know what you are talking about.

    And all this entirely without maths!
