The University of Oxford Guide to Artificial Intelligence

In this publication you’ll read about how AI and machine learning techniques are allowing clinicians to diagnose more accurately conditions such as heart disease; how the banking and finance sectors are being revolutionised by algorithms; how we’re moving towards a world in which vehicles are able to drive themselves.

You’ll also read about the fundamental scientific research underpinning these world-changing applications – research carried out by mathematicians, statisticians, computer scientists and information engineers.

Finally, you’ll hear the views of key voices in the ethical, social and legal debates that inevitably arise alongside rapid technological advancement. How do we know the algorithms making decisions about our lives aren’t biased? What is the likely impact of automation on jobs? Will we ever see the day when machines can truly think like humans?
