What the media says

"With a simple and precise language, the author talks about Artificial Intelligence (IA) and its sub areas -machine learning and deep learning-, through practical examples, graphs and the collection of scientific studies on the subject along the years. Velarde goes through topics ranging from philosophy, creativity, consciousness, to of course, intelligence and education. All this, taking as a central axis AI and the impact it has had worldwide and in Latin America.", Dafne García, LadoB. (Translation, original text in Spanish)

"'Artificial era' by Gissel Velarde represents a valuable contribution in the field of artificial intelligence and its repercussions on society, especially for Hispanics, because it is an accessible book, written in a clear and precise manner; also because scientific literature in this field is usually not available in Spanish.", eju.tv (Translation, original text in Spanish)
