    Description

    For decades, proponents of artificial intelligence have argued that computers will soon be doing everything that a human mind can do. Admittedly, computers now play chess at the grandmaster level, but do they understand the game as we do? Can a computer eventually do everything a human mind can do?

    In this absorbing and frequently contentious book, Roger Penrose puts forward his view that there are some facets of human thinking that can never be emulated by a machine. The book's central concern is what philosophers call the "mind-body problem". Penrose examines what physics and mathematics can tell us about how the mind works, what they can't, and what we need to know to understand the physical processes of consciousness. He is among a growing number of physicists who think Einstein wasn't being stubborn when he said his "little finger" told him that quantum mechanics is incomplete, and he concludes that laws even deeper than quantum mechanics are essential for the operation of a mind. To support this contention, Penrose takes the listener on a dazzling tour that covers such topics as complex numbers, Turing machines, complexity theory, quantum mechanics, formal systems, Godel undecidability, phase spaces, Hilbert spaces, black holes, white holes, Hawking radiation, entropy, quasicrystals, and the structure of the brain.

    One one zero zero zero zero zero one zero zero ...

    If you like listening to 50 digit binary notations read out as ones and zeros for a couple hours endlessly than this is an audiobook for you. On the other hand, the value of this book is apparent so I ordered th ed print version.

    Not for listening to

    Seemingly endless reading of binary numbers that on the page would be typed out is absolutely unbearable and conveys no meaning what so ever. This is done not a few times and one 20 minute chapter is nearly exclusively this. Better to read the book.

    This is an eyeball read

    Great book but not well suited for experiencing as an audiobook. Several sections were very equation/calculation/number heavy and I found it painful to listen to physics notation fully enunciated over and over ie. “open bracket vertical bar A close bracket right arrow...”

    Echoing others: get the book in paper.

    Put shortly, please buy the book. It is important material heading into the 21st century. AI, philosophy, and consciousness studies from the lens of science is a huge portion of the future. Roger Penrose has done a phenomenal and thorough overview starting from scratch. He builds his ideas fluently and expertly, but reading it aloud simply did not work. I had read the reviews and tried my hardest to make it through the audio. It's not a poor performance, but what tossed me over the tolerant cliff was the reading of the syntax.

    I can't help but wonder why a mathematician didn't read a mathematician's book.
    f(x) should be read "f OF x" and NOT "f open parenthesis x close parenthesis" This became ridiculously tedious. : (.
    I wonder if the first half of the book I managed to hear did not included a whole hour of just hearing syntax.

    I crave the material, and have ordered the physical book because it will be important to SEE the binary in order to digest it, rather than hear it. I'd like to SEE the equations and intuitively follow along. I couldn't keep order of the sequences in my head and it lost it's meaning and just became a thorn to get over.

    Put you to sleep boring

    I respect Roger Penrose but this attempt at a new book was a complete failure. While the subject is interesting the way in which he hoes about explaining things will put you to sleep. He explains every aspect of the math and actually writes it out number by number.

    Not an audio book. Completely useless.

    Probably a great book but not in audio form unless you can follow equations just by listening. I can't. Nobody can!!! What were they thinking?! Can't even return it for some reason. Very disappointed.

    Great Book, Horrible Audiobook

    Penrose is obviously brilliant and a lot of the information in this book is still relevant after 30 years. But seriously the narrator actually reads seamingly endless strings of binary numbers like '0010111010110001101010', and Turing Machine bit code like ' 10000R0100111101L left arrow 001101...stop'. It's really almost too much to sit thru. If you're getting this audiobook so you can listen along while reading the printed version - great, go for it. But if you're planning to listen in the car or while just chilling, you might want to give this one a pass.

    Good but Dated and Not Great on Audible

    The first few chapters of this book would be very difficult in just audible unless you are already very familiar with Turing Machines and the Mandelbrot Set. Unfortunately there is no PDF to go along with the book. Some images can be seen on Google Books and, of course, in paper or kindle.

    The rest of the book suggests that human intelligence is non-computable and AI will be unable to produce machines that feel and intuit. Some of these ideas have become dated some are interesting but I did not find any deeply compelling.

    Nevertheless this book is has a lot of interesting information and ideas and was well worth the listen, but I would not strongly recommend the Audible version.

    The narration was very good considering the very difficult material.

    Don’t listen to this, read the book

    It is nearly impossible to listen to this book it has lots of math equations that are read out expertly by the narrator but it’s just impossible to listen to. Read the book

    This is great news. Good Job Nobel Prize Winner!

    It would appear that Nassim Haramein with Walter Russell's work compounded and the fact that Walter has just received the Nobel Prize. I am exited to read Nassims new paper he is about to release on the compounding effects with the Iching and the ability of the biorhythms of humanity....

    Super Buch, aber leider als Hörbuch ungeeignet

    War von den ersten Kapiteln sehr angetan, aber leider ist das Buch ab dem Kapitel über Touringmaschinen als Hörbuch quasi komplett ungeeignet. Es werden oft mehrere Minuten lang Symbol- und Binärcodes vorgelesen. Auch die im gedruckten Buch durchaus verständlichen Formel sind in vorgelesener Form nur mit äußerster Konzentration nachzuvollziehen - wenn überhaupt. Der Sprecher ist abgesehen davon hervorragend! Leider sind 10 Minuten Nullen und Einsen auch mit einem super Sprecher ziemlich langweilig (außer man ist ein digitaler Computer, womit wir direkt beim Thema sind). Habe das Buch dann doch in gedruckter Form gekauft und bin sehr glücklich damit. Kurz: absolute Kaufempfehlung für das gedruckte Buch, aber von Hörbuch kann ich leider nur abraten.

    Ein fantastisches und anspruchvolles Buch

    Um es gleich vorweg zu nehmen: Dieses Hörbuch ist anspruchsvoll und kann nicht einfach so nebenbei angehört werden. Penrose steigt mit der erforderlichen Tiefe in die theoretische Informatik und Physik ein und gibt sich grosse Mühe seine Gedankengänge klar zu machen. Der Autor verzichtet nicht auf mathematische Formeln, welche vom Sprecher fehlerfrei vorgelesen werden. Vom Hörer wird viel Konzentration abverlangt, jedoch ist das Verständnis der Formeln keine Voraussetzung um den Gedankengängen des Autors zu folgen. Ich hoffe, dass auch noch andere Bücher von Roger Penrose als Hörbuchfassung produziert werden.
