    Following up on today’s newsletter, Derin Cag, the CEO of Richtopia blogged about his top 20 favourite AI book and whitepapers.

    There are quite a few sensationalist books on this list (generally anything written by Ray Kurzweil or Nick Bostrom!) of which I am not a fan. I have to agree with Machine Learning by Tom M. Mitchell, as this is a highly regarded reference text for a huge range of machine learning algorithms and learning approaches. Artificial Intelligence Simplified: Understanding Basic Concepts by Dr. Binto George and Gail Carmichael is a great introduction to the world of AI.

    My list would include The Deep Learning Book by Ian Goodfellow, Yoshua Bengio, and Aaron Courville. It is currently available online in pre-print form. I would also include (perhaps controversially!) a fiction book. The Circle by David Eggers describes the life of a girl who is willingly sucked in to an exaggeration of our current society; always connected to the social internet where algorithms rule. Overcomplicated: Technology at the Limits of Comprehension by Samuel Arbesman is also an interesting read, if a little sensationalist!
