批評家のレビュー

"Janelle Shane makes the kind of neural networks that go viral. Her quirky creations autonomously stumble and grumble... the output of her networks is typically silly and charming in equal measure." (Slate)

"Creative and hilarious." (New York Post

"Janelle Shane is quickly becoming the internet's neural network queen." (Nerdist

あらすじ・解説

As heard on NPR's Science Friday, discover the book recommended by Malcolm Gladwell, Susan Cain, Daniel Pink, and Adam Grant: an "accessible, informative, and hilarious" introduction to the weird and wonderful world of artificial intelligence (Ryan North).

"You look like a thing and I love you" is one of the best pickup lines ever...according to an artificial intelligence trained by scientist Janelle Shane, creator of the popular blog AI Weirdness. She creates silly AIs that learn how to name paint colors, create the best recipes, and even flirt (badly) with humans — all to understand the technology that governs so much of our daily lives.

We rely on AI every day for recommendations, for translations, and to put cat ears on our selfie videos. We also trust AI with matters of life and death, on the road and in our hospitals. But how smart is AI really...and how does it solve problems, understand humans, and even drive self-driving cars?

Shane delivers the answers to every AI question you've ever asked, and some you definitely haven't. Like, how can a computer design the perfect sandwich? What does robot-generated Harry Potter fan-fiction look like? And is the world's best Halloween costume really "Vampire Hog Bride"?

In this smart, often hilarious introduction to the most interesting science of our time, Shane shows how these programs learn, fail, and adapt — and how they reflect the best and worst of humanity.

You Look Like a Thing and I Love You is the perfect book for anyone curious about what the robots in our lives are thinking.

"I can't think of a better way to learn about artificial intelligence, and I've never had so much fun along the way." (Adam Grant, New York Times best-selling author of Originals

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

it is an AI explanation and I love it

I've been looking for a down-to-earth explanation of how AI works and this book accomplished that in fine fashion. The examples, the explanations, and just the overall way the material was presented was really outstanding. I look forward to listening to it again!

I, for one, welcome our new insect overlords

Just kidding. Neither insects or artificial intelligence are about to overtake humans. Learn how AI really works, what it can and can’t do. Plus, a lot of amusing failures. An entertaining book.

Funny and smart, but biased on bias

Datasets and AI will never produce unbiased results. Manually changing the outcomes produces bias, leaving it the same produces bias. I thoroughly enjoyed this book, very funny and thought provoking on philosophy, statistics, and psychology without directly mentioning these. I will share as much of this as I can. Thanks!

Cute and useful

Unlike some reviewers I LOVE the robotic voice. It makes it easy to tell apart the robot and it’s cute.
The book is what it says it is and does a good
Job of explaining where AI is these days .

Okay not great

There are some interesting aspects of this book. Perhaps it would be better in print. The performance is extremely annoying when she uses a fake computerized voice. If you can move past the performance, the information is interesting and thought provoking.

interesting topic

the subject matter is interesting, but some of the content is over-covered, especially where the author names examples of A.I. generated guffaws (again and again)

One of the best narrators I've ever heard

An interesting and humorous explanation of what AI is and isn't, filled with hilarious examples of things like recipes generated by bots. I enjoyed it immensely and will listen to it again. Xe Sands is utterly amazing at bringing out the comic value of both the author's and the bots' words.

Bit noddy

More a collection of anecdotes than anything. Doesn't provide any real insight into how AI actually works. Just about enough interest to make me stick with it to the end. I get the impression that a lot a lot of the time it says 'researchers found that the ai evolved to do x' it isn't quite as dramatic or impressive as the book makes it sound. Personally I found the reader had an extremely annoying tone, but that may just be me - bit to folksy American for my ear. 2.5 to 3 stars.

good story, annoying narrator

The book is interesting, the observations are spot on.

The weakness is the voice actor. She has a couple of verbal tics that really start grating as one goes through the book. I can't listen to it anymore, and I am only about halfway through.

Painfully cute narration made me give up

I'd heard good things about this book and would have bought the print version but needed to use up some Audible credits, so went for the audio book. Unfortunately, the narration is distracting to the point of being unbearable, especially when the narrator starts doing the bad TTS voice. I managed 26 minutes and then gave up. I looked up the voice artist, Xe Sands, award-winning audio book narrator of romance novels. I think she should stick with romance. Tech non-fiction does not call for character narration. It's not the first time bad narration has ruined an audio book for me, but maybe I'm more particular than other people. I recommend you listen to a sample to decide if it's acceptable to you.

A super book, spoiled by the narrator

This is a really excellent book, interesting, well written and engaging. The author makes the subject easy to understand and enjoyable.

However a lot of the fun and the learning is down to the examples and the narrator read them all in an utterly weird singsong voice which was so far from normal pronunciation I couldn’t understand most of it. The rest of the book she read very well, but to render the most important parts unintelligible was frustrating to say the least.
I’d recommend reading this book rather than listening.
