Description

Penguin Audio presents Life 3.0 by Max Tegmark, read by Rob Shapiro. 

We stand at the beginning of a new era. What was once science fiction is fast becoming reality, as AI transforms war, crime, justice, jobs and society - and even our very sense of what it means to be human. More than any other technology, AI has the potential to revolutionise our collective future - and there's nobody better situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark, an MIT professor and cofounder of the Future of Life Institute, whose work has helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial. 

In this deeply researched and vitally important new book, Tegmark takes us to the heart of thinking about AI and the human condition, bringing us face to face with the essential questions of our time. What sort of future do we want? Life 3.0 gives us the tools to join what may be the most important conversation of our time.

Great book. But not much new

It's a great book on a great topic. If you've already read homo deus, super intelligence or read about AI online, you will not learn much new though. But it is very well written.

Excellent journey with good dive deeps

It may seems that the book will speculate on hot topic & buzzy words, but actually you got a perfectly cut gem that illustrates the problem, gradually educates you on the topic with no pressure with author opinion

Consciousness is physics!

I loved it. I am going to read it twice and more. It made me think of start reading physics for fun. It left me wondering maybe there could be law of physics that could illustrate witchcraft or Black Magic!! Max Tegemark what do you think? Come to Tanzania there are people seen instructing the sky to rain or a light to strike! Imagine transforming that lighting energy to electricity, we could bury the thought of Africa is a land of darkness!🤔

Fascinating intellectual tour de force

Life 3.0 is a fascinating book giving an outlook of the wide range of opportunities and possible pitfalls of current and future ai system.

I especially liked how the possibility of super human general artificial intelligence is looked upon from different angles and how the possible outcomes are described.

In comparison to Nick Bostrom‘s book „Superintelligence“ (another impressive & thought provoking book) this book takes a broader perspective. Whereas Nick Bostrom focuses in depth on the control issue of super human agi, Max Tegmark‘s book mentions this specific challenge as one of many issues when considering the implications of future ai system.

I totally agree with the author of this book, that the work on ensuring beneficial ai is an important topic. In my view probably at least as important as having safety procedures and communication channels to avoid accidential nuclear war.

Hopefully, humanity succeeds in making future (super) human level general artificial intelligence systems robust and beneficial, leading to „tears of joy“ in sentient beings instead of e.g. driving us extinct due to some final goal not aligned with our human goals (whatever they are, but getting extinct definately isn‘t).

In summary the book is great to read / great to listen to for anybody interested in the implications of current and future ai systems.
