I have to say that although I find the idea of artificial intelligence fascinating, writings on the subject are often immensely dull. So, although I acquired Thinking Machines by Luke Dormehl some time ago, I have only just started reading it.
I wish I'd started earlier.
It's a really engaging exploration into the development of AI and the problems it has had to grapple with.
