Pressestimmen

Advance Praise:

"A hard-hitting book about the most important topic of this century and possibly beyond -- the issue of whether our species can survive. I wish it was science fiction but I know it's not."

--Jaan Tallinn, co-founder of Skype

"The compelling story of humanity's most critical challenge. A "Silent Spring" for the 21st Century."

--Michael Vassar, former President of the Singularity Institute

"Barrat's book is excellently written and deeply researched. It does a great job of communicating to general readers the danger of mistakes in AI design and implementation."

--Bill Hibbard, author of "Super-Intelligent Machines"

"An important and disturbing book."

--Huw Price, co-founder, Cambridge University Center for the Study of Existential Risk

""Our Final Invention "is a thrilling detective story, and also the best book yet written on the most important problem of the 21st century."

--Luke Muehlhauser, Executive Director of the Machine Intelligence Research Institute

""Science fiction has long explored the implications of humanlike machines (think of Asimov's "I, Robot"), but Barrat's thoughtful treatment adds a dose of reality." --"Science News"
"This book makes an important case that without extraordinary care in our planning, powerful 'thinking' machines present at least as many risks as benefits. ...

Kurzbeschreibung

A Huffington Post Definitive Tech Book of 2013

Artificial Intelligence helps choose what books you buy, what movies you see, and even who you date. It puts the "smart" in your smartphone and soon it will drive your car. It makes most of the trades on Wall Street, and controls vital energy, water, and transportation infrastructure. But Artificial Intelligence can also threaten our existence.

In as little as a decade, AI could match and then surpass human intelligence. Corporations and government agencies are pouring billions into achieving AI's Holy Grail—human-level intelligence. Once AI has attained it, scientists argue, it will have survival drives much like our own. We may be forced to compete with a rival more cunning, more powerful, and more alien than we can imagine.
Through profiles of tech visionaries, industry watchdogs, and groundbreaking AI systems, Our Final Invention explores the perils of the heedless pursuit of advanced AI. Until now, human intelligence has had no rival. Can we coexist with beings whose intelligence dwarfs our own? And will they allow us to?

The topic of the book - the dangers of a runaway artificial intelligence - is certainly interesting and important. Therefore one should thank the author for bringing it up and maintaining a public discussion about dangers and risks of a technology we won't be able to control in the near future and that could in principle endanger the existence of our species.

The thing is - the book is badly written. James Barrat is a documentary filmmaker, and so the books looks exactly like a documentary in written form: Some thoughts here, an interview there, and a few key points repeated over and over again in a slightly different form. There is no overarching line of thought (which you can find even in short talks on Youtube for example by Nick Bostrom), and many interesting and central questions are simply left out entirely (what is intelligence anyway? can a machine become aware of itself just by being given enough computational power? etc.). The book could have been shrunk to 50% without losing any relevant contents.

While it is a very easy read I find it incredibly difficult to get myself to continue this book. I cannot see the structure in the writing and reading it makes me feel like my mind is all over the place. I think you can get the same value out of a magazine article.
The cover looks super nice, though.

Auch wenn ich vieles im Bereich "Starke Künstliche Intelligenz" anders sehe als der Autor, ist dieses Buch ein wichtiger Beitrag zum wichtigsten gesellschaftspolitischen Problem der nächsten 10 bis 15 Jahre. Ich wünschte mir, auch nur ein Bundestagsmitglied hätte das gelesen ...

Intelligence within humanity and the inventions we create will continue to rise, and at an increasing rate. It will have human origins, but it will likely become its own species. It might be optimistic to believe that humans can ride this curve, but why shouldn't we. What we will experience is nothing more than a next stage in evolution, but one so complex that no one can predict its progress.
The author has spoken to many informed and imaginative thinkers with differing opinions. He offers a great introduction to the adventure that many of us will experience in our lifetimes.

"Our Final Invention" by James Barrat is book that offers sad view of human society future.

Today we are more and more relying on artificial intelligence, trusting our smart phones and computers what is good for us for watching, eating, reading...
And although we think that AI is still something that is in its infancy phase, a reader will be surprised to learn how many things around us are driven by some kind of AI.
It's true that lot of them are still simple forms of AI, but given the speed of its development we can only guess how much time will pass before it would grow into some shape difficult or impossible for humans to control.

And although on the one hand this book indicates everything that is obviously inevitable with this technological development, it also puts us in paradoxical situation would it be possible to live in a world without technology that is constantly evolving.
Probably none of us would not as an example to others gave up from all those things that make our life more interesting and easier, reducing stress level and allow more time with our loved ones.

So, in one moment while or after you'll read it, you'll probably ask yourself what can we do with all these disturbing things we learn from this book?
Is this sad fate of human society avoidable using ideas that author presented, is it too late for that?

For example, the author is bringing up the very interesting idea of human brain reverse engineering but due to dark forecasts for human society because of the AI development that's the idea that should be wisely considered.

"Our Final Invention" is interesting and well-written read that is due to author's literary style easy to read even for those who are completely uninformed about the AI before reading the book.

Therefore I can fully recommend you to read this dark, but certainly possible vision of the human future.
