I think everyone should read/listen to the prologue of Max Tegmark’s book Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artifical Intelligence. The whole book is good, but the intro, in particular, does a good job of outlining some of the ways a superhuman AI could impact the world (in mostly the best possible outcome for such an event). And while Tegmark handwaves how we get to such an AI and places robots at the end of a sequence of events—in what I believe is erroneous—it is still fascinating. For those who want this narrated to them, I present:
@ben we should talk about this. I just finished Yuval Noah Harari’s book ‘21 Lessons for the 21st Century’ which touches on this a little bit.
Anyone else thinking/reading about this?
