Description

How will artificial intelligence affect crime, war, justice, jobs, society, and our very sense of being human? The rise of AI has the potential to transform our future more than any other technology - and there's nobody better qualified or situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark, an MIT professor who's helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial.

How can we grow our prosperity through automation without leaving people lacking income or purpose? What career advice should we give today's kids? How can we make future AI systems more robust so that they do what we want without crashing, malfunctioning, or getting hacked? Should we fear an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons? Will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, replacing humans on the job market and perhaps altogether? Will AI help life flourish like never before or give us more power than we can handle?

What sort of future do you want? This book empowers you to join what may be the most important conversation of our time. It doesn't shy away from the full range of viewpoints or from the most controversial issues - from superintelligence to meaning, consciousness, and the ultimate physical limits on life in the cosmos.

Ce que les critiques disent

"This is a compelling guide to the challenges and choices in our quest for a great future of life, intelligence and consciousness - on Earth and beyond." (Elon Musk, founder, CEO, and CTO of SpaceX and cofounder and CEO of Tesla Motors)
"All of us - not only scientists, industrialists and generals - should ask ourselves what can we do now to improve the chances of reaping the benefits of future AI and avoiding the risks. This is the most important conversation of our time, and Tegmark's thought-provoking book will help you join it." (Professor Stephen Hawking, director of research, Cambridge Centre for Theoretical Cosmology)
"Tegmark's new book is a deeply thoughtful guide to the most important conversation of our time, about how to create a benevolent future civilization as we merge our biological thinking with an even greater intelligence of our own creation." (Ray Kurzweil, inventor, author, and futurist, author of The Singularity Is Near and How to Create a Mind)

thoughtful, thorough, and well read

this is such a fascinating topic and the narrator did a great job of bringing the material to life. I recommend reading this now and not putting it off as the pace of technology is such that some of the ideas presented here might be out of date before too long.

The future is now..

Our very way of life in the future - now, even - is significantly influenced and moreso decided by the minds collaborating on artificial intelligence research and the safety protocols being built into that research. Though it's very much the elephant in the room in a world concerned with disaster relief, Trump, terrorism, weather change, etc., it's time to look more closely at the many improvements this research can bring to solving largely political issues and many others - perhaps specifically poverty in relation to technological displacement of the workforce - by helping us as a society to embrace the legislating of change and mobilize humanity in ways much more valuable than economic development. This book effectively analyzes not only the technology but the societal effect.

Génial ! Pour les Nerds et les fans de SF

Un état des connaissances actuelles sur la vie, l'univers, l'informatique et bien sur l'intelligence artificielle, avec ses risques et son potentiel. Et une foule de scénarios possibles qui pourraient donner une centaine de romans, films ou séries.
Passionnant de bout en bout !

A few interesting points in otherwise tedious book

Lots of name dropping and self-congratulations. The chapters on the physical possibilities of the expansion of artificial intelligence were interesting. Otherwise, it's a lot of vague definitions and superficial descriptions.

Voice actor gets forward and back slash mixed up.

It was a great book but the voice guy keeps saying back slash for URL's. Computer people will read this and they will all notice.

Confusing chapter# mismatch between audio & player

Why can't the app's chapter numbering sequence match that of the book, I.e. the text as it is being read?

An accessible book on AI that left me optimistic

I loved the weaving of the realistic fictional story into the beginning of book, and i also appreciate that Tegmark is actively working on these issues of ai safety which made me optimistic by the end of the book (which is not usually the feeling I have at the end of a book like this).

Stimulating

Great on science. Outside of that, as clueless as an Oxford philosopher (not his fault).

Advanced technology, or new religion

Irritating

I struggled to get through this one. An interesting topic but unfortunately lumbered with clunky writing and endless name dropping. A better title would be 'memoirs of an AI safety researcher'. Read Ian M Banks culture series for a much more riveting treatment of distant future AI and the various ethical issues.

Not Logically Thought Out - Tautologies R Us

As a Physicist, you'd think Max Tegmark would understand statistics, yet some of the key points he makes early on suggest he does not:

- he believes the Solar system is the only place * in the Universe * where
there is life (or at least intelligent life)

- but he himself suggests a couple of chapters later that life seems
to be an inherent result of the laws of physics and chemistry as
an entropy enhancer

(because entropy is the *aim* of the Universe????)

- From the latter view there is every reason to expect life to evolve

- But life would only happen in one spot in the Universe?

Granted that intelligence may be an evolutionary fluke, but the number of opportunities for the fluke to be perpetrated are vast. So if the Universe *is* a life-creation engine because of its "goal" of increasing entropy (he says) , there would be many many many opportunities for life, and intelligence, to evolve - yet Dr. Tegmark believes it would not happen.

So he invalidates his own logic and deduction within two or three chapters, and seemingly only because of a contrarian desire to go against popular views.

There are a couple of chapters that include tautologies, such as the claim that Consciousness is substrate independent because, well, it is. Later the book goes on to try and support the claim, but the chapter introducing the topic is fairly weak.

From there the author degenerates into a mass of pseudo-philosophic stylings, using terms like "sufficient cause" and "necessary condition" of 18th century philosophic language, reminding me of Voltaire's Dr. Pangloss (Candide): the sufficient cause being a guess that consciousness depends on how it feels to process certain types of data a certain way. So another tautology: because it invokes "how it feels", without explanation of how we are able to 'feel', substituting it as a "how we do it" explanation of being conscious - we are conscious because of how we feel when we do this thing we call awareness...so how do we do the feeling?

I could go on with a lot of analysis and refutation: about a book's length of it, it seems, but I think I have made my point.

Great but second part is to scientific

First 50% of book makes it worth buying, absolutely good, but why in gods name change to such exaggerated scientific writing style in second part using 300 times 10^x and 10^y and comparisons nobody can grasp? It seems like another writer entirely. But the cause is absolutely worth it so, thank you for being part of the effort to make ai safe.
