Rage Inside the Machine description
Our world today is as governed by technology as it is by laws and regulations. One of the world’s leading experts on AI and evolutionary algorithms, Robert Elliott Smith believes we have been dangerously seduced into believing that technology is neutral and it is only its human users that distort and discriminate. In his lucid, insightful and highly readable Rage Inside the Machine, Robert demonstrates how non-scientific ideas have been encoded deep within our technological infrastructure and the pernicious impact this can have on our lives.
