Really wanted to hear this book, but had to give up half way through chapter one. The theatrical delivery was too distracting and is not well sited to such a technical topic. Annunciation also very jarring for headphone listening. Disappointing.

This book is a basic history of computing. It is so basic I'm shocked it's from MIT. Todays children instinctually understand the topics covered in this book. The title is misleading. It should simply read "The history of basic computing"

A great summary of the different types of machine learning algorithm. Great for someone looking to get a good overview understanding :)

This was a useful book to understand the basic technical elements of machine learning, but the author gave very short thrift to the ethics and politics of machine learning. The author claims the book is a neutral overview, but very clearly has a vested interest in wanting to believe machine learning is - on net - always positive. The hidden bias, revealed in many of the examples, was towards corporate applications of machine learning to sell more products by extracting data from people. This should at least have been noted

I’m not an expert in this field, so I could be wrong but I returned this audio book half at through.
Feels like the author is an academic reading bits and pieces out of other academics text books.
