Superintelligence

Superintelligence

Nick Bostrom

Overview

The idea of robots has been around a long time now, but it seems we're getting closer to a world where computers might be as smart as humans - or even smarter. We have to ask ourselves -

  • What will that look like?
  • Will machines really be able to rebel against us?
  • Will we put AI into humanoid robots?
  • Will the internet start to think?

Nick Bostrom is a philosopher who's spent years studying the future and existentialism. Bostrom calls this AI phenomenon 'superintelligence'. While some books try to predict what the future will look like, Superintelligence attempts to determine what the path towards it must look like in order for it to work out in our favor.

"Far from being the smartest possible biological species, we are probably better thought of as the stupidest possible biological species capable of starting a technological civilization."
