Synopsis

'This is the most important conversation of our time, and Tegmark's thought-provoking book will help you join it' Stephen Hawking



THE INTERNATIONAL BESTSELLER. DAILY TELEGRAPH AND THE TIMES BOOKS OF THE YEAR

SELECTED AS ONE OF BARACK OBAMA'S FAVOURITE BOOKS OF 2018



AI is the future - but what will that future look like? Will superhuman intelligence be our slave, or become our god?



Taking us to the heart of the latest thinking about AI, Max Tegmark, the MIT professor whose work has helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial, separates myths from reality, utopias from dystopias, to explore the next phase of our existence.



How can we grow our prosperity through automation, without leaving people lacking income or purpose? How can we ensure that future AI systems do what we want without crashing, malfunctioning or getting hacked? Should we fear an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons? Will AI help life flourish as never before, or will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, and even, perhaps, replace us altogether?

Customer Reviews

Max takes a bit of a futurologist turn into speculation about the future and while a lot of the tech and concepts he talks about are already here there is always the concern that such an activity may seem like unwarranted at best and prophecy at worst. I enjoyed the book and yes it does outline where the technology seems to be heading. Tegmark is generally optimistic and likes to think that he is both an altruistic and concerned community member. It may just be the tech community and the physics community and his concerns may not be the wider publics concerns. Tegmark reads a lot better when he is speaking of mathematics specifically with regards to physics. More willing to read an academic paper by him and his students but this was a fun diversion for an evening weekend.
