Product Details


“A must-read, fully-up-to-date report on the holy grail of computing.”
Kirkus Reviews (starred review)

“In Genius Makers, Cade Metz delivers the definitive take on how AI technology came to be and what its arrival will mean for us humans. The book relies on tireless reporting and delightful writing to bring to life one of the most surprising and important stories of our time. If you want to read one book to understand AI, this is the one.”
—Ashlee Vance, New York Times bestselling author of Elon Musk

“This colorful page-turner puts artificial intelligence into a human perspective. Through the lives of Geoff Hinton and other major players, Metz explains this transformative technology and makes the quest thrilling.”
Walter Isaacson, #1 New York Times bestselling author of Leonardo da Vinci, Steve Jobs, and The Innovators

“Cade Metz has produced an enthralling narrative of the advance of artificial intelligence. He describes the key personalities, the seminal meetings and the crucial breakthroughs with his customary eye for detail, building them into a dramatic history of this era-defining technology.”
—Kai-Fu Lee, author of AI Superpowers

“This is the inside story of how AI entered Google, Facebook, and the rest of high tech.  It is also the story of how Silicon Valley and its megabucks infiltrated AI and changed its course. Chock-full of behind-the-scenes anecdotes and wry humor—we learn the true tale of the technology that is transforming humanity.”
—Oren Etzioni, chief executive, Allen Institute for Artificial Intelligence

“One day soon, when computers are safely driving our roads and speaking to us in complete sentences, we’ll look back at Cade Metz’s elegant, sweeping Genius Makers as their birth story—the Genesis for an age of sentient machines.”
—Brad Stone, author of The Everything Store and The Upstarts
Genius Makers is an enthralling, definitive modern history of artificial intelligence. Cade Metz’s detailed narrative reveals the crucial decisions made by executives, developers and investors––and foreshadows the disproportionately large effect they will have on our futures.  
––Amy Webb, author of The Big Nine: How the Tech Titans and Their Thinking Machines Could Warp Humanity
