    Inhaltsangabe

    Robots may one day rule the world, but what is a robot-ruled Earth like?

    Many think the first truly smart robots will be brain emulations, or ems. Scan a human brain, then run a model with the same connections on a fast computer, and you have a robot brain, but recognizably human.

    Train an em to do some job and copy it a million times; an army of workers is at your disposal. When they can be made cheaply, within perhaps a century, ems will displace humans in most jobs. In this new economic era, the world economy may double in size every few weeks.

    Some say we can't know the future, especially following such a disruptive new technology, but Professor Robin Hanson sets out to prove them wrong. Applying decades of expertise in physics, computer science, and economics, he uses standard theories to paint a detailed picture of a world dominated by ems.

    While human lives don't change greatly in the em era, em lives are as different from ours as our lives are from those of our farmer and forager ancestors. Ems make us question common assumptions of moral progress, because they reject many of the values we hold dear.

    Read about em mind speeds, body sizes, job training and career paths, energy use and cooling infrastructure, virtual reality, aging and retirement, death and immortality, security, wealth inequality, religion, teleportation, identity, cities, politics, law, war, status, friendship, and love.

    This book shows you just how strange your descendants may be, though ems are no stranger than we would appear to our ancestors. To most ems, it seems good to be an em.

    Very well written book, meaningful, fulfilling read

    Although this book may be slightly abstract, you can use the information and it’s sources, linking them to current day trends in your life.

    There are also frequent consciousness bombs, that get your mind thinking about what makes sense to invest your energy in, for a better future. Statistical and geographic information is also brought into explanations, when drawing up predictive conclusions and concepts.

    Overall, I enjoyed using the information in this book to: optimise my focus areas for the future, increase my awareness, enhance my methods of learning and building ideas within my own life.
