Inhaltsangabe

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.

Kritikerstimmen

"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)

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.

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.

Tolle Grundlage zum Nachdenken und diskutieren

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

mindblowing

loved it! Not only AI is discussed, but also a deeper meaning of consciousness and what it means to be human. Can definitely recommend.

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.

A topic that should concern everyone

Especially the first half of the book is fascinating and informative. I don't recommend skipping the epilogue. It's one of the best parts!

Should be assigned reading for any conversation about AI

Great non alarmist and relatively objective introduction to the major themes and controversies surrounding discussions about our future with AI. Accessible to non-expert readers and very engaging story telling.

this is a book that everyone should read, arguably this is the most important subject of our lifetime. and while some arguments are quite complex, it is a fascinating read
