AI professor Toby Walsh is convinced big changes are ahead.

Walsh is known as a ‘rock star’ in the Australian digital community and internationally as an advocate for AI that improves human life. He also is a high-profile activist against intelligent weaponry.

He grounds his horizon in the realistic capabilities of computer science. He also flags known limitations, with warnings where he thinks they are called for. The net effect still feels like futurism but with a more balanced view than many recent books about AI.

Walsh is a professor of computer science at the University of Australia, a frequent speaker and writer, and a regular go-to media analyst in the field.
