When it comes to artificial intelligence, we hear either of a paradise on Earth or of our imminent extinction. It's time we stand faceto-digital-face with the true powers and limitations of the algorithms that already automate important decisions in healthcare, transportation, crime, and commerce. Hello World is indispensable preparation for the moral quandaries of a world run by code, and with the unfailingly entertaining Hannah Fry as our guide, we'll be discussing these issues long after the last page is turned.

"With refreshing simplicity, Fry explains what AI, machine learning and complicated algorithms really mean." - Guardian
"Fascinating and funny. I learned something on every page." - Tom Chivers, BuzzFeed
"An action- packed read during which you will be outraged, provoked, and challenged." - Cathy O'Neil, author of Weapons of Math Destruction
