Synopsis:

"Will change your idea of what it is to be creative and even what it is to be human."--(William Poundstone, New York Times Book Review)


Review:

"...the authors have created a book with the playful accessibility and depth of Mr. Hofstadter's previous books...'Fluid Concepts & Creative Analogies' is much broader than the title suggests. Although it is about A.I. programs, it will change your idea of what it is to be creative and even what it is to be human. All in all, this exhilarating book is the most important on A.I. for the thoughtful general reader in years and ample proof that reports of the death of artifical intelligence have been greatly exaggerated."

William Poundstone, New York Times Book Review
