    Ik vind het lastig om een recensie over dit boek te schrijven. Het is een aardige introductie tot het fascinerende veld van kunstmatige intelligentie (AI), geeft veel goede en nuttige voorbeelden van AI in de praktijk van vandaag en de toekomst en schetst diverse ethische en praktische bezwaren. Maar het doel van het boek (of was het mijn verwachting?) was een begin maken met nadenken over Interactiepatronen voor AI. Het lastige is natuurlijk dat dit een volledig nieuw veld is. Over vijf, tien j Ik vind het lastig om een recensie over dit boek te schrijven.

Over vijf, tien jaar gniffelen we om de onzekere zoekende toon van dit boek. Tegen die tijd zijn de patronen uitgekristalliseerd. Nu weten we alleen nog maar dat we niets weten. Als je een introductie zoekt tot AI, misschien nog even verder kijken naar een beter boek. Maar Noessel is een onderhoudend schrijver en een autoriteit als het gaat om interactiepatronen. Met andere woorden: ik weet het niet...

    I am very impressed with this book. Not only does it do a great job at describing what is Agentive Technology (a relatively new term even for me), but it does so in such a structural way that you get to understand how Humans slowly changed their "agents" throughout history (with the example of the thermostat) until having reached software and created AT. It goes trough very important topics such as: How do we identify what is an AT, what is AT build for, how is it supposed to work with different I am very impressed with this book.

It goes trough very important topics such as: How do we identify what is an AT, what is AT build for, how is it supposed to work with different use cases, how will it interact with the users, what is it supposed outcome? It explains everything so very well. The book knows how to entertain you, how to explain concepts that you may not be familiar with, provides examples for you to follow along. You get to grasp how the design of software that is AT is built, is tested and then launched. The book, of course, also addresses a very important question when it comes to AI. How will this affect us, good and bad? How dependent will we become of it? Will we use our skills because of their assistance? Will they replace us? I learned so much from this book, and it would totally be a book I recommend to anyone who is interested in AI, specially in Agentive Technology when it comes to designing or just learning of it. Definitely worth a read. It is a magnificent book.

    This isn't quite what I'd expected: I think I was expecting a more general approach to AI, but instead it's geared specifically toward what the author refers to as agentive technology—technology that acts on the users' behalf (like a Nest thermostat or a Google alert) after being set up with some initial preferences or instructions, then monitoring for trigger events, and acting according to the user's instructions. Nonetheless, it's a super interesting and accessible look at how this technology This isn't quite what I'd expected: I think I was expecting a more general approach to AI, but instead it's geared specifically toward what the author refers to as agentive technology—technology that acts on the users' behalf (like a Nest thermostat or a Google alert) after being set up with some initial preferences or instructions, then monitoring for trigger events, and acting according to the user's instructions. Nonetheless, it's a super interesting and accessible look at how this technology is currently being used, and where it may lead in the future. Worth reading even if you aren't building something agentive right now, since there are some good insights about AI generally, and it'll encourage you to think a bit more agentively about the things you're currently building as well.

    Fascinating read. The author has written a well planned book wherein initially the basic is explained before going into the depths. Even then it is divided into sub questions of why, what and how. There are lots of examples with the simple language makes it easier to understand. It was informative reading about AI. What makes it a wholesome package is the inclusion of ethics towards the end mainly for understanding the misuse along with the use. So even if your are not tech savvy, your imagination Fascinating read. The author has written a well planned book wherein initially the basic is explained before going into the depths.

    This is a really good book, especially the first two parts. Chris gives us all some fine frameworks to design with AI and provides great examples. The last part of the book somehow doesn’t feel as tight, delving too much into philosophy and ethics. It is necessary, but could be shorter with that part. The book has a recap section after every chapter which makes it easy to refer later. If you are in tech, this book is a must read. I wish it was better in the last part though.

    This is one of the few books about designing for AI and a great place to start. I've seen the author at conferences before and I really appreciate the way he explores and approaches the intersections of design and technology. The book is an easy read with great examples, a running case study, and end of chapter summaries. I wish more design skills books were like this.

    Glorious mixture of thought-provoking points and real world examples. Read this book as I started my journey into building ai products and stimulated some great ideas as well as valuable warning signs or caution points. Highly recommended.

    Not that many books about AI design yet, this one summarizes some of the context.
