THE MASTER ALGORITHM
This book provides a wider framework than just deep learning, which is the hot thing now.

It's going to be a combination of several.
BUILDING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE WE CAN TRUST BY GARY MARCUS AND ERNEST DAVIS
I see this book as being kind of a shot across the bow of the deep learning/connectionist camp, which has sort of taken over the discussion around artificial intelligence.

It’s becoming imperative for business leaders to understand artificial intelligence and machine learning at an appropriate level in order to build great data-centric products and solutions.
MACHINE LEARNING YEARNING
TECHNICAL STRATEGY FOR AI ENGINEERS, IN THE ERA OF DEEP LEARNING BY ANDREW NG
A great book for practitioners in its broad coverage of machine learning and its application to artificial intelligence. Written in a much more how-to- or cookbook-style approach than that book.
