by James Barrat
Our Final Invention by James Barrat is one of the best books ever written on Artificial Intelligence. James Barrat is the author of this Artificial Intelligence book. James is a documentary filmmaker who’s written and produced films for National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, and many other broadcasters. In this book, he explains an overview of the many things that advanced AI could do, very few of which we humans would consider as good, or friendly, or aligned with our values and ambitions as a species. This book is about what can go wrong with the development and application of advanced AI.The author uses a very creative way to define the intelligence and its effects on human life. He told in the book that intelligence, not charm or beauty, is a special power that enables humans to dominate Earth.
That dominance wasn’t won by a huge intellectual margin either but by a relatively small one. It doesn’t take much to take it all. Now, propelled by a powerful economic wind, scientists are developing intelligent machines. But before machine intelligence matches our own, we have a chance. We must develop a science for understanding and coexist with smart, even super-intelligent machines. If we fail, we’ll be stuck in an unwinnable dilemma. We’ll have to rely on the kindness of machines to survive. Will machines naturally love us and protect us?
