So I started reading this book yesterday. I found it in my brother's room, picked it up, and began to read (he didn't even notice it was gone because he doesn't even read books anyway). Keeping in mind my brother is a huge computer geek, guess what the book is about?
Well, to be honest, it's about artificial intelligence.
It's about how we can use a true understanding of the overall framework of how the brain works to create computers that aim to mimic human intelligence or even exceed human capabilities.
Considering I'm only 14 pages into the book, I have to say that I am enjoying more than I expected! It is certainly quite ambitious and proposes ideas that are unlike any other I've read. I can't say I love it, but it is quite interesting...
