Kogan Page publishes book about AI, written with the help of AI
Kogan Page’s latest Inspire series title, Superhuman Innovation, is the first book about Artificial Intelligence (AI) written with the help of AI.
AI is the electricity of our times, revolutionizing industries across the world. In Superhuman Innovation, Chris Duffey and conversational AI agent, Aimé, have an insightful and lively dialogue describing the ways in which AI and machine learning can impact business innovation, supercharge the workforce and ‘up level’ humanity to superhuman capabilities.
Helen Kogan, Kogan Page’s Managing Director, commented: “We were intrigued to see how AI could be used to explain complex theories in an accessible way and the impact it would have on the writing process. No, AI won’t replace authors, but it can act as an enabler to support research, analysis and provide context to contemporary business issues. Chris Duffey’s use of AI has been a revelation and we’re delighted to publish our first human/machine collaboration.”
In the context of this book, the AI function is a suite of technologies each building on a different set of concepts, approaches and infrastructures. Aimé is part conversational text and part conversational speech, and, via machine learning, will only get smarter over time. Aimé’s name is derived from the French phrase for beloved (bien aimé) and is also a symbolic combination of AI + me.
Speaking about the book Monson Tseng, Senior Business Development Manager at Amazon Alexa, said: “Superhuman Innovation is forward thinking and captures the potential of AI in the future. It is clear from reading this that brands who are not adopting their business to support an AI future will be left behind.”
Rachel Loui, Head of International Growth for Business & Industrial Markets at Google, added: “Superhuman Innovation is a secret resource for smart people trying to grow their business.”
Superhuman Innovation explains why we need to change the way we do business and demonstrates how AI can be used to gain competitive advantage. Artificial Intelligence and conversational agents, like Aimé, show us how AI assistants will empower us across all areas of our lives.
