Outsmarting AI

by Brennan Pursell, Joshua Walker

Outsmarting AI Synopsis

From factories to smartphones, Artificial Intelligence is already taking over. Outsmarting AI is not a how-to guide on making AI work, but making it work for YOU to boost profits and productivity. Each development in Artificial Intelligence (AI) technology brings about apprehension and panic for the future of society and for business. We're bombarded with stories about the impending human-less workplace; it is no longer a question if man can be replaced by machine in certain tasks, but when. However, AI was not manufactured to destroy life as we know it. These emerging technologies were developed and are constantly updating with a particular goal in mind: optimization. AI feeds on data and information to improve outputs and increase potential. With this enhanced productivity, profit and productivity will be sure to follow. Written by Brennan Pursell, a business consultant and professor who hates jargon, and Joshua Walker, an AI pioneer with 18 years of experience in solutions and applications, Outsmarting AI is the first plain-English how-to guide on adapting AI for the non-coding proficient business leader. This book will help readers to -Cut through the fog of AI hype -See exactly what AI can actually do for people in business -Identify the areas of their organization in most need of AI tools -Prepare and control their data - AI is useless without it -Adopt AI and develop the right culture to support it -Track the productivity boost, cost savings, and increased profits -Manage and minimize the threat of crippling lawsuits

Outsmarting AI Press Reviews

Pursell breaks down the myths associated with Artificial Intelligence (AI), talks generally about AI implementation, and makes suggestions about the application of AI in businesses and everyday life. This book is written not solely for the technologically minded, thus the text is not heavy with AI language, but is more accessible because of its rather compact (with just six chapters) nature. However, the work could have benefited from real-world examples of AI implementation showing how the misconceptions have been conquered rather than just theoretical examples. VERDICT Recommended for general readers curious about AI, and business owners interested in implementing AI to realize a ROI (return on investment).--Library Journal Entrepreneurs and executives alike need to get smart fast about AI, one of the hottest and most misused terms in today's business and investing environment. This is especially true for organizations trying to use AI for real-time customer insights in building recurring-revenue businesses. Pursell and Walker's accessible, engaging book provides a great overview of what Artificial Intelligence is and isn't, how it can and should be used, and the important ethical considerations that can never be made by a computer.--Robbie K. Baxter, Founder and CEO, Peninsula Strategies Outsmarting AI is a compelling and fun guide to putting AI to work for your business, employees and customers.--Jennifer Mazzon, Chief Product Officer, Thrive Global If you're looking for an insightful book on AI, this one is it.--Siraj Raval, AI educator, author Outsmarting AI is a one-stop-shop for understanding and applying artificial intelligence. It is, or very soon will, impact every business in every industry; thus, it is incumbent on every decision maker to learn then navigate accordingly. Trying to decipher AI truth from fiction is difficult given the myriad, and often conflicting, schools of thought on the subject. Brennan Pursell and Joshua Walker masterfully articulate in easy-to-understand language the intricate aspects of various subjects that make up what we call artificial intelligence. It's absolutely a must-read for astute leaders and those wishing to affect future change.--Rollan Roberts II, Cybersecurity and AI Advisor to National Governments, Former CEO, Hoverboard
