Janelle Shane - You Look Like a Thing and I Love You

How Artificial Intelligence Works and Why It's Making the World a Weirder Place, a Science Book Talk & Signing

Janelle Shane has a PhD in engineering, a masters in physics, and, in her spare time, she experiments with training an AI to understand humans. Shane will discuss and sign You Look Like a Thing and I Love You: How Artificial Intelligence Works and Why It's Making the World a Weirder Place ($28.00 Voracious). This is a hilarious look under the hood of artificial intelligence, the technology that's changing the world--and why it's more clueless than we think.

Shane has taught A.I. to tell knock-knock jokes, design the perfect sandwich, and even flirt with humans. The title of this book was her algorithm's idea of a perfect pick-up line. Through her hilarious experiments and surprising anecdotes, she does more than just demystify A.I.--she gives readers the tools to understand what it's good at, what it struggles with, and what it gets catastrophically wrong.
