The Age of AI
Three of the world’s most accomplished and deep thinkers come together to explore Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the way it is transforming human society—and what this technology means for us all.
An AI learned to win chess by making moves human grand masters had never conceived. Another AI discovered a new antibiotic by analyzing molecular properties human scientists did not understand. Now, AI-powered jets are defeating experienced human pilots in simulated dogfights. AI is coming online in searching, streaming, medicine, education, and many other fields and, in so doing, transforming how humans are experiencing reality.
In The Age of AI, three leading thinkers have come together to consider how AI will change our relationships with knowledge, politics, and the societies in which we live. The Age of AI is an essential roadmap to our present and our future, an era unlike any that has come before.
The Age of AI
A scan of where things will head for societies grappling with AI. Very philosophical at times. I liked the way the authors proposed areas society will need to wrestle with in the future. Needed more concrete examples and futurist/vision on how things might work for the better.
No new or earth shattering concepts here. Some good historical information leading up to the age of AI. But it’s somewhat vague regarding details as to what exsistential dangers A.I. poses to civilization, spending too much time pondering the political, ethical and philosophical questions, with the predictable and logical conclusion being to challenge societies and governments to establish some form of universal agreement on doctrines or regulations in order to avoid or circumvent an existential (or more likely inevitable) apocalypse; too P.C. in its revelations but few potential scenarios are presented that creates the urgency that is assumed the book was intended to promote.
