Description

Named one of the "Top Ten Technology Books of 2018" by Peter High, Forbes.com

"Compared with the amount of ink spilled over the prospects of artificial general intelligence and all its accompanying fears--the singularity!--there's been much less attention to the smaller changes already happening in the realm of A.I. and their quite profound economic implications. Enter Prediction Machines." -- The New York Times

"...a readily understandable guide to artificial intelligence and the immensely consequential effects it could have on our economy, our society and our political system." -- Robert E. Rubin, former U.S. Treasury secretary and co-chair Emeritus, Council on Foreign Relations

One of "10 Great Reads For The Summer" -- Dave McKay, President & CEO at RBC

"Prediction Machines: The Simple Economics of Artificial Intelligence by Ajay Agrawal, Joshua Gans and Avi Goldfarb. This 2018 book...on the timely topic of AI - tops my summer reading list. The authors...offer a compelling framework for mapping out the likely impact of AI on economies in the decades ahead. -- BlackRock Investment Management

Named a Hardcover Non-Fiction Bestseller by the Globe & Mail (Canada)

"An excellent book on the economics of Artificial Intelligence. Steeped in both economics and AI/ML, this book steers clear of hype (or anti-hype), applying standard economic concepts to a rapidly emerging phenomenon. The book is geared to business readers not economists or policymakers but it has a lot to offer to everyone... Highly recommended." -- Jason Furman, former Chair of President Obama's Council of Economic Advisors on Goodreads

"This is a timely book, well written, and accessible putting forward their insights, and is well worth reading." -- Irish Tech News

Advance Praise for Prediction Machines

Lawrence H. Summers, Charles W. Eliot Professor, former president, Harvard University; former secretary, US Treasury; and former chief economist, World Bank--
"AI may transform your life. And Prediction Machines will transform your understanding of AI. This is the best book yet on what may be the best technology that has come along."

Susan Athey, Economics of Technology Professor, Stanford University; former consulting researcher, Microsoft Research New England--
"Prediction Machines is a path-breaking book that focuses on what strategists and managers really need to know about the AI revolution. Taking a grounded, realistic perspective on the technology, the book uses principles of economics and strategy to understand how firms, industries, and management will be transformed by AI."

Dominic Barton, Global Managing Partner, McKinsey & Company--
"Prediction Machines achieves a feat as welcome as it is unique: a crisp, readable survey of where artificial intelligence is taking us separates hype from reality, while delivering a steady stream of fresh insights. It speaks in a language that top executives and policy makers will understand. Every leader needs to read this book."

Kevin Kelly, founding executive editor, Wired; author, What Technology Wants and The Inevitable--
"This book makes artificial intelligence easier to understand by recasting it as a new, cheap commodity--predictions. It's a brilliant move. I found the book incredibly useful."
