Book review: Genius Makers
I'm not a big fan of non-fiction books and I made an exception for it as it's a subject closely related to my day-to-day work.
What I enjoyed is the fact that easy to read with a good tempo and gives you insight behind de scenes - at least this is my relative impression and I'm sure there are still many uncovered facts. Yet it keeps me intrigued and keen on finding out more about who was involved and what motivated them. Personally I score it 5/5
I don't think there is anything in particular that I don't like. If there was one thing I could request from the author would be to keep it up-to-date for the next years to come in the form of the appendix or new releases :) Who knows, maybe in a few years there will be a second part that will shed light on the current world situation (war in Ukraine, semiconductors race, COVID etc ) that shaped the state of AI.
To summarise it's a well-written report like a book that I'll be recommending it now to everyone. And I mean it. AI is having an impact on lives of all of us not only the IT sector, hence knowing a few facts about how it all started and developed over decades gives a better understanding of the current situation and key players on the stage.
