    This should have been a 25 page essay, not a book length stretching of a thin premise Shame on the editors who allow dross like this Most maddening was the redundancy of the definitions of AGI, ASI, and the theory of an intelligence explosion Well into the book, I continued to shout, I get it already Plus, there s really only one outcome that is stretched in a pessimist sensationalist manner namely, AI will, via feedback loop, or self improving recursion, propel itself to ASI and become s This should have been a 25 page essay, not a book length stretching of a thin premise Shame on the editors who allow dross...

    Artificial intelligence just the phrase brings a number of things to mind Probably the best known is Siri, that cute, slightly funny app that lives on your iPhone, but AI is now embedded in all sorts of things now, from the programmes that high frequency traders use to buy and sell share, the software in drones and the computer systems in cars Until now it has been very low level stuff, but it is the goal of some to make that machine that can pass the Turing test and seem, as they said in Bla Artificial intelligence just the phrase brings a number of things to mind Probably the best known is Siri, that cute, slightly funny app that lives on your iPhone, but AI is now embedded in all sorts of things now, from the programmes that high frequency traders use to buy and sell share, the software in drones and the computer systems in cars Until now it has been very low level stuff, but it is the goal of some to make that machine that can pass the Turing test and seem, as they said in Blade Runner,human than human.Even thought the human species is not the fastest, strongest or deadliest, our intelligence coupled wi...

    This is a frustratingly written book Barrat skates over important questions what s intelligence what s self awareness can a computer, something that thinks in binary, ever really perceive and emote in order to constantly remind his readers that AI poses a threat to humankind I agree, actually I think that AI does pose a threat, but doomsday proclamations and continually harping on it makes me feel as a reader like he is trying to play off of my fears Speaking of...

    In 1863, English novelist Samuel Butler wrote an article titled Darwin among the Machines He claimed that machines were a mechanical life undergoing constant evolution and that they might eventually supplant humanity as the dominant species He writes,Day by day, however, the machines are gaining ground upon us day by day we are becomingsubservient to themmen are daily bound down as slaves to tend them,men are daily devoting the energies of their whole lives to the develop In 1863, English novelist Samuel Butler wrote an article titled Darwin among the Machines He claimed that machines were a mechanical life undergoing constant evolution and that they might eventually supplant humanity as the dominant species He writes,Day by day, however, the machines are gaining ground upon us day by day we are becomingsubservient to themmen are daily bound down as slaves to tend them,men are daily devoting the energies of their whole lives to the development of mechanical life The upshot is simply a question of time, but that the time will come when the machines will hold the real supremacy over the world and its inhabitants is what no person of a truly philosophic mind can for a moment question He suggested immediate destruction of all machines, a sugge...

    We are going to be gods It is inevitable AI is a by nature a complex concept It is in fact in itself a complex system In complex systems, when the system is manipulated, the outcome is often unknown That is the nature of complex systems And for that reason, if not any other reason, it will be hard to say what will be our future after we invent AI Is there any reason for us to exist after there is an intelligent being with a power of understanding which will surpass our own by leaps and bo We are going to be gods It is inevitable AI is a by nature a complex concept It is in fact in itself a complex system In complex systems, when the system is manipulated, the outcome is often unknown That is the nature of complex systems And for that reason, if not any other reason, it will be hard to say what will be our future after we invent AI Is there any reason for us to exist after there is an intelligent being with a power of understanding which wi...

    I received this book as part of the First Reads giveaways and was very excited to read it The book wasn t exactly what I expected, and I m not sure I agreed with everything Barrat proposes, but it did make me think about AI in a way I never had before, and that was, I believe, at least half his purpose The book is an easy read for a layperson, and a brilliant foundation for a science fiction writer Mostly, the book made me want to write about a superintelligent machine race that has been stea I received this book as part of the First Reads giveaways and was very excited to read it The book wasn t exactly what I expected, and I m not sure I agreed with everything Barrat proposes, but it did make me think about AI in a way I never had before, and that was, I believe, at least half his purpose The book is an easy read for a layperson, and a brilli...

    Let me say off the bat that this book was interesting and thought provoking The author asserts and defends the positions that Artificial Super Intelligence ASI is inevitable and humanity will likely not survive its invention I recommend the book for its perspective, its review of the current state of AI development, and its set of plausible predictions However, I thought the book had a number of holes, a few contradictions, and it left some basic questions unanswered.One contradiction At o Let me say off the bat that this book was interesting and thought provoking The author asserts and defends the positions that Artificial Super Intelligence ASI is inevitable and humanity will likely not survive its invention I recommend the book for its perspective, its review of the current state of AI development, and its set of plausible predictions However, I thought the book had a number of holes, a few contradictions, and it left some basic questions unanswered.One contradiction At one point Barrat said that he fear...

    I received an advance copy of this book through the First Reads program it s alternately one of the most interesting and frustrating books I ve ever read On one hand, it presents some highly disturbing information about the speed at which we re approaching ASI, but on the other, the author offers no real solution or ideas to stop our future robot overlords Every theory offered on how to prevent the upcoming AI apocalypse is presented as doomed to fail anyway, so what was even the point of all I received an advance copy of this book through the First Reads program it s alternately one of the most interesting and frustrating books I ve ever read On one hand, it presents some highly disturbing information about the speed at which we re approaching ASI, but on the other, the author offers no real solution or ideas to stop our future robot overlords Every theory offered on how to ...
