Artificial Intelligence Basics

My book is for those who do not have a technical background but still want to understand the core ideas of AI. The topics include machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing and even physical robots. There is also a look at how to implement AI in your organization.

“I’ve been in the tech industry for more than 20 years and the buzzwords that have exploded around AI over the past few have left us all confused…until now. Tom Taulli breaks down the industry jargon in simple terms so that you can actually understand the history behind the AI movement and how terms like machine learning, deep learning, natural language processing, and big data all fit together. His writing is clearly organized, and he provides the examples that anyone needs to understand how AI and its associated technologies will shape the future. Highly recommended!”

The Robotic Process Automation Handbook

AI technology can be tough for a company to implement.  So an easier way to start is with RPA (Robotic Process Automation).  In my book, I show you how.  I cover areas like planning, process methodologies, vendor evaluation, setting up a COE (Center-of-Excellence), bot development and the use of process mining.

“Robotic process automation, or RPA, is the fastest-growing enterprise software segment in history. Much like his last book in this series, Artificial Intelligence Basics, Tom Taulli has managed to capture the essence of a highly complex and fast-changing market in ten brief chapters. Anyone getting started with RPA would be well served to start here.” — Michael Beckley, the Founder and Chief Technology Officer of Appian
