Author: Dennis L. Foster
Publisher: The Life Science Institute
We are entering a period of profound social and technological transition in which developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) is completely transforming civilization as we know it. From birth until death, AI already influences people in previously unimagined ways. Unfortunately, the same technology that might solve the planet's most dire problems has also spawned autonomous killing machines and nanorobots capable of spreading lethal viruses indiscriminately. As superintelligent machines ascend, will they inherit our competitive drives to succeed, exploit, and dominate? Who will be the real masters of future civilizations: humans or machines? Will humans someday be able to upload their minds to computers? This book provides the most likely answers, based on recent breakthroughs and groundbreaking research, to these and other questions about one of the most important human quests of modern times - possibly of all time.
