    Description

    As we approach a great turning point in history when technology is poised to redefine what it means to be human, The Fourth Age offers fascinating insight into AI, robotics, and their extraordinary implications for our species.

    In The Fourth Age, Byron Reese makes the case that technology has reshaped humanity just three times in history:

    100,000 years ago we harnessed fire, which led to language.

    10,000 years ago we developed agriculture, which led to cities and warfare.

    5,000 years ago we invented the wheel and writing, which led to the nation state.

    We are now on the doorstep of a fourth change brought about by two technologies: AI and robotics. The Fourth Age provides extraordinary background information on how we got to this point and how - rather than what - we should think about the topics we’ll soon all be facing: machine consciousness, automation, employment, creative computers, radical life extension, artificial life, AI ethics, the future of warfare, superintelligence, and the implications of extreme prosperity.

    By asking questions like “are you a machine?” and “could a computer feel anything?”, Reese leads you through a discussion along the cutting edge in robotics and AI and provides a framework by which we can all understand, discuss, and act on the issues of the Fourth Age and how they’ll transform humanity.

    Really loved this book

    Now that I'm through Fourth Age, I'm sad it's over. The book is a journey through philosophy of mind and human potential. Really enjoyed it.

    A Big History Story of AI

    What did you love best about The Fourth Age?

    I am about a 3rd of the way through the book. I really like how the book gives a perspective of big history and tells a 100,000 year history of AI. I have read a number of AI books and this book complements those books very well.

    Impressive Thinking Awe Inspiring

    One of the greatest works on the impact, potential and risks of applied technology of our time. Written in a highly engaging style this masterpiece provides fuel for thought regarding a vast array of topics that will shape our immediate, near and long-term circumstances. I am better for having listened to it.

    A thought provoking read

    I enjoyed this book that examined philosophical questions regarding our future and Technology. the author explored these questions without talking down to the audience and without any personal bias. if you spend time wondering what the next 25 years will look like you will be interested in this book.

    New perspectives and lot of future possibilities

    Very thought provoking! This is a masterpiece from Byron. Gives a whole lot of new perspective to human life, human goals and purpose , human evolution. This tells us how AI and robotics has potential to change trajectory of human civilization for ever. Best read for someone who want to understand AI potential in a non technical way. The downside of AGI highlighted as a likelihood can send chill down your spine. Book is filled with a lot of meaningful information.

    very boring

    had to stop listening after 5 chapters. it was all exposition and theories of human history and thinking with lazy assumptions. ie author posits why did some communities invent writing but other didnt? he concludes no one knows.

    Excellent and enlightening

    Very interesting take on why opinions diverge on our future as a species. Well reasoned and very fascinating. I sincerely have a more optimistic outlook on our future after reading this. Very highly recommended, particularly for those worried about automation and the like.

    really powerful insights and impeccably documented

    This is a great volume on technology and things to come. What makes it powerful is not the interesting predictions or imaginative scenarios but how it accomplishes sharp inference on the future based on retrospective analysis of data and facts.
