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.

Critiques

"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)

Trop centré sur l'ai et ne relativise pas beaucoup

L'histoire des omégas et de Promotheus est la partie la plus intéressante. Je trouve qu'il ressort du livre une impression globale de pessimisme. L'ai ne peut être que bénéfique. Il aurait fallut relativiser plus les arguments. D'autant plus que les extrapolations de l'auteur lui permettant d'imaginer ce que serait le future de l'humanité avec des ia, reposent sur nos connaissances actuelles de loi de la physique qui peuvent clairement évoluer.

Artificial Intelligence bible

If I was to choose one book about the artificial intelligence to read in life, I'd take this one.
First of all it is very complete - it talks about the definitions, current progress, applications, ethics, predictions...
It is very balanced - the author uses well defined but generic definitions, which are always explained and the differences covered. He also tries to always include the arguments from all sides of the environment and doesn't push the reader to believe in any particular idea he has.
It's modern and applicable, with all the names and places, plus suggestions of the ways everyone can help and adapt, plus information how everyone can be soon affected.

Many things in Life 3.0 may feel abstract, as most of the discussed matters are not going to happen within our lives or maybe ever, but its packed with super interesting deliberations and problems. Obviously it gives no clear solutions though.

Odd book with some good info

This is a odd book that seems to be lobbying the reader to accept, and get involved in, the AI Safety movement. There are lots of interesting ideas, many make sense, some are kind of odd. Others have pointed out Tegmark seems to believe it is both likely (and preferable) that we are the lone civilization in all the universe. It seems this is because if this distance between civilizations was small we certainly would have noticed other civilizations. I am not convinced.

As others have noted there is a lot of name dropping and self-congratulation in this book.

The author admits he is an unapologetic optimist which influences his writing in quite a few places. I prefer realists to optimists or pessimists.

Nevertheless this is a worth the time and I would recommend it to anyone who is interested in AI and the potential dangers involved. One of the key issues is that many AI researchers ignore the safety issues as AI is currently so weak safety does not seem to be a realistic concern. Tegmark (and others) point out that AI could transition from weak-AI to super-intelligent AI in just a few hours or days. Thus thinking about AI Safety now is a good idea.

The narration is quite good with somewhat tricky material.

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).

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.

Wow. Whooda thunk it? Great content made accesible

What does Rob Shapiro bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

Great inflection and maintains interest throughout.

Any additional comments?

An amazing topic. Everyone should have a least a working understanding of this issue. It's coming (if not already here) whether we are ready or not.

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.

Some of the future think will blow your mind

Liked the book in general. Still trying to figure out tho why I didn't love it because it's well done. The start of the book could be misleading.

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?

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.

An important book for everyone to read

Humans make the universe meaningful is the message of this book. And that safe AI is a must. AI will eradicate all disease and make our lives better. Very important considerations in this book. Loved it. Rob Shapiro who reads this book is wonderful.

very interesting topic could be done shorter

very interesting discussion about the future of Life from a physicist perspective
where is the first 4 chapters are very interesting The astrophysical perspectives later are a little bit far fetched and not so directly related to the immediate future

Thoughts on Life, Universe and Intelligence

This is a very thoughtful book about the last invention humanity will likely make: super intelligence. I like the way how Max outlines his definitions of intelligence or consciousness and then explores the topic of super intelligence from different perspectives. Inspiring and thought provoking with quite a bit of physics.

A philosophical view to ai

I enjoyed hearing the book. It's easy to follow the authors ideas, not sure if giving the biggest companies control over one super ai will result in a future of happiness for all.

interesting but not what I expected

I would have liked more facts instead of fiction, Tegmark in my opinion holds on to what he feels is human and how it get's presented to us by movies and media.. in my opinion AI is beyond human, the book should be about letting go of what we think is human and open up for the developements ahead..

Tegmark talks a lot about how AI can serve humans so we can stay like we are but in my opinion AI is so much more, AI gives us a better understandting of ourselves and by doing so is transcending humankind.. it will be part of our evolution and what we think to be human is, needs to be left behind to create something better..

we just need to let the whole topic evolve without fear, I suprised that a cosmologist like Tegmark wants to constantly steer our future, thats not what the universe is about, the universe is about natural evoluation, unbound to any believes..

I would recommend Homo Deus instead of this one if you want to get a glimpse of where we are heading..

Too Hypothetical

I work and design Artifical Systems, thus I was really interested in this book. Unfortunatly I was pretty disappointed. The speaker sounds very boring and the book is more about what could happen in theory. The problem I have with this is, we know so little about the universe and technlogoy, that hypothetical, anything can happen. This book doesnt talk about what AI currently is able to do but instead creates a story where AI basically takes over the world. Even when he talks about the problems of AI, he doesnt talks too hypothetical. I personally cant recommend this book, since it reads to me as a SciFi. Book is about what can happen with AI in 200-1000 years. We don't even know how advanced AI will be in 10 years and humans have been wrong in assuming technlogoy development in the past many times already. Turin expected the first Computer to fool a human to be decades before it actually happened.

Prinzipiell sehr gut - aber manchmal sehr abstrakt

Das Audiobook bietet einen guten Einblick in AI und dem aktuellen Status dazu. Jedes Kapitel hat dabei verschiedene Informationen - manchmal mehr technisch, analytisch, abstrakt oder informierend über den aktuellen Wissenstand und die Forschungsweise dazu.
Der Größte Teil des Audiobooks ist gut aufgebaut und sehr packend (teilweise sehr informationsreiche für einen Newbie daher nicht zu empfehlen wenn gehört wird bei anstrengenden Stadtverkehr oder Intervallen beim Laufen). Teile vom Buch sind mir persönlich aber zu abgehoben und abstrakt. Diese Kapitel sind dann fast wie eine Fantasy Story geschrieben. Ist Geschmackssache, ich bevorzuge aber eher die Sichtweise eines realitätsnahen Zustands.

Great thoughts, sub-par presentation

Being a researcher myself, and at home in a field close to what Tegmark writes about, I do believe that he's very much aiming in the right direction. In part, his thoughts are outright breathtaking. What I didn't like are his lengthy paths to making a point; in particular those that describe, over various minutes, whom he met, how humbled he was, and how nice the other person acted. This is what I'd expect from an autobiography, not a philosophical, thought-provoking, and otherwise inspiring take on one pf the biggest challenges humanity will face. Also, the narrator takes his job a step too far when reading, e.g., URLs almost letter-by-letter.

Max Tegmark hat ein komplexes Themengebiet in gut nachvollziehbarer Weise gegliedert und erklärt. Ein toller Einstieg, um sich mit den Themengebiet auseinander zu setzen.

Great insights into the future world with AI

Max Tegmark explains the requierements, impact and potential new world orders with the creation of superintelligent AI. Some readers might be scared by Max insights, but the great thing about this book/audio is that he does not take a side except when it comes to the danger of AI and the importance of safe AI. But as a reader once you reach this part of the book, you understand his stance and the importance of the matter. not an easy read and quiet challenging sometimes, but a most for anyone interested in his future and the future of mankind. Thanks Max for your work.
