Our Final Invention :
The promises Artificial Intelligence holds for our future are often described in utopian terms - intelligent, helpful robots, enhanced brain function, even the development of life-extending technologies. But there's another, rarely discussed and far darker possibility. Our Final Invention argues that we may be racing towards our own extinction, as military, academic, and corporate advances in artificial intelligence lead to an uncontrollable new life form, one that's smarter and more powerful than we can imagine.
This isn't science fiction, but it is actually far closer than most of us realize. Bringing AI experts together in a thoroughly accessible way to reveal the dark side of the optimistic vision presented in The Singularity is Near, Our Final Invention explores the frightening likelihood of catastrophic outcomes once we share the planet with intelligent machines.NOTE: This is a Scratch and Dent book and may have noticeable dents, scratches and various other cosmetic issues as well as torn or missing dust jacket.
