What comes into your mind when thinking about artificial intelligence and machine learning? Assosiations of flying saucers? Or Google, Facebook and China ruling the world with their (evil?) empires of data? Or the conversations with family and friends that have read in the newspaper that AI will now take over and replace all of our jobs?
I stumbled upon this book written by Ken Kocienda recently. And it seemed like a great chance to understand a bit more about Apple’s secret sauce, especially as Apple is notoriously secretive abouts its internals. So I decided to buy the book (despite the fact that the paperback version has one of the ugliest book covers in history - which is kind of funny as one would expect exactly the opposite from something that talks about Apple).
Before diving into the content of this book, let me tell you one thing: This is one of the rare books that I would recommend anyone to read at full length, just because it’s so well written and contains so many nice anectodes that it is impossible to get across the whole message in a summary. So make sure to get you own copy at Amazon.
