Amir Husain

Technologist and inventor Amir Husain is here from his Austin home this evening with his ambitious first book, The Sentient Machine: The Coming Age of Artificial Intelligence (Scribner).

“Should Artificial Intelligence be feared or embraced? Which industries will be transformed next? Should we allow autonomous weapons in the military? Can machines be creative? This book provides a sound, technical perspective while tackling core questions about science, society and humanity. We’re at a crossroads, and I recommend this book to anyone seeking a balanced and reasoned view of the future.” —Professor Bruce Porter.

“In The Sentient Machine, Amir Husain prepares us for a brighter future; not with hyperbole about right and wrong, but with serious arguments about risk and potential.” —Dr. Greg Hyslop.
