Entre máquinas inteligentes

Editorial ­Flamboyant. Feb. 2022. 72p. Tr $21.90. ISBN 9788418304255. SP.
Gr 3-6–Kids learn about how intelligent machines, such as cars and toys, work in this high interest title. The narrative also presents the impact these machines have on our lives. It begins with a chronological treatment of how and when inventions were first constructed, from 280-220 AD—with the invention of the first automatic camera—until 2016, when The Kitty AI animated film was created. Made by the artist Pinar Yoldas, the work humorously imagines a future where artificial intelligence takes over politics and an AI kitten becomes the first non-human governor in the year 2039. The book continues with explanations on what makes a machine “intelligent.” It also explores the differences between artificial creations and human beings, and how these inventions can affect us in positive and negative ways. The highly visual format is attention-grabbing, and the infographics make it super engaging. The bright pinks, oranges, and teals may detract some readers, but the busy format and palette could entice non-STEM fans. Back matter includes a glossary, several bibliographies, and references.
VERDICT A dynamic package that will pique the interest of scientists, inventors, and kids who thought they were not interested in either.
