The Most Human Human by Brian Christian.. The quest for artificial intelligence never ceases to intrigue our species (e.g., Watson’s recent triumph on Jeopardy), but when it gets down to brass tacks, we know that winning a game isn’t the same as being human. Or is it? This author (presumed human) takes us through a series of experiments that bedevil.

Joel Gardner, LitSnap Editor

Kirkus Review

"Mr. Christian covers a great deal of ground with admirable clarity but with a lightness of touch …."
