New Book: Artificial Intelligence in Practice

Just starting to read Bernard Marr's just released: Artificial Intelligence in Practice: How 50 Companies used AI and Machine Learning to Solve Problems..   A company by company view of how they are using AI today. I will follow with more comments as I see more.  Most of the companies mentioned here are of interest to me.

So far nicely done, but relatively little detail about use of technology.  Useful in its sense of what has has been done.  Certainly worth examining for why these methods are being used.  Not too dissimilar that to what we did in the 80s, but here directly using new, very focused techniques developed in the last few decades.  No mention of Robotic Process Automation or Process analysis or Knowledge management?   Nor Data in the index?  Nor Chatbots or conversation management in the index?  Good breadth of links in the 'notes' sections that point to detailed papers, will be following up on some of these, especially in some industries.    Worth a careful scan.
