You are probably not aware, because of their hidden nature, but artificial intelligence systems are all around you affecting some of the biggest areas of your life - jobs, loans, kids, mental health, relationships, freedoms, and even healthcare decisions that can determine if you live or die. As an executive working in AI at one of the largest, most sophisticated tech companies on the planet, Cortnie Abercrombie saw firsthand how the corporate executives and data science teams of the Fortune 500 think about and develop AI systems. In this book, she makes it easy to understand how AI works and unveils what companies are doing with AI that can impact you the most. Most importantly, she offers practical advice on what you can do about it today and the change you should demand for the future.

This book addresses the pressing questions that non-insiders want answered, including: How does AI work (in words you don't need a PhD to understand)?; how can AI affect my job, replace me, or prevent my hire?; is AI involved in life-or-death decisions in healthcare?; could my digital accounts or home network be hacked because of my AI-based smart TV, coffeemaker, or robot vacuum?; how does AI know so much about me, what does it know, and can it be used against me?; can it manipulate people to do things they wouldn't normally?; and much more.
