In their comic essay We Need to Talk, AI data scientist Julia Schneider and artist Lena Ziyal, detail the current state of AI without hype, marketing or sensationalism. They provide insights into the technologies involved and the reasons for the numerous recent advances in the field with straightforward explanations that don’t require any technical knowledge.

Their book covers the large variety of uses and applications of AI through several examples, and shows some of the improvements that it might offer to society in terms of not only efficiency and economic opportunities but also inclusion and accessibility. More importantly, it invites reflection and debate through open questions and discussion of the real dangers and actual moral dilemmas this technology poses, well before the menace of sentient robots taking over the world is anything more than a movie plot.
