This book empowers you to join what may be the most important conversation of our time It doesn't shy away from the full range of viewpoints or from the most controversial issues from superintelligence to meaning consciousness and the ultimate physical limits on life in the cosmos Life 30 is in turns enlightening and infuriating It is worth reading for the many enlightening bits We are likely to invent AI soon 1 What could happen next and 2 what should happen next? To tackle this subject satisfyingly would reuire somebody who is an unbiased AI researcher a psychologist a neuroscientist a moral philosopher a metaphysician a philosopher of mind an economist a political scientist a poet and perhaps Since that person doesn't exist we're stuck with Tegmark who is none of the above He is a physicist and a cosmologist As a result Tegmark often tries to forcefully shove physics shaped answers into AIeconomicsphilosophywhatever shaped problems when all you have is a hammer everything looks like a nailHowever Tegmark is smart curious and open minded and has an impressive talent for networking helped in part by his credentials as a physicist He has privileged access to a broad range of top thinkers from various disciplines including much of the top brass of AI research In Life 30 Tegmark is at his best when he acts as a curator and interpreter explaining a broad range of ideas in a simple accessible fashion There's a lot of exciting things to learn from in this book on domains as varied as game theory applied to hierarchical organization teleological interpretations of physical laws and the scope of potential futures resulting from the irruption of human level AI They're often covered at a rather superficial level but you've got to start somewhereSo there are a lot of good ideas But the distribution of ideas that Tegmark is drawing from is heavily skewed towards the hard sciences Often the humanities incl philosophy economics are not given a say even when their contribution is not just relevant but indispensable For instance when Tegmark discusses the origin of the values that govern human behavior he concludes that it does not fit our genes but our feelings Bizarrely forgetting about culture At another point we spend considerable time discussing how much intelligent life the universe can harbor with barely a word on why that's a good thing Yet another omission concerns the medium term conseuences of sub human AI in terms of employment political manipulation and so on; these very urgent issues are uickly dismissed in a few superficial pagesOverall then Life 30 is a good book that suffers from massive blind spots Think of it as a four or five stars book from which half the pages have been torn awayPS in a hilariously groveling sentence Tegmark describes his benefactor Elon Musk as tall handsome elouent and incredibly knowledgeable Much of Tegmark's interesting work is funded rather generously by Elon Musk One wonders how Musks' ongoing RUD rapid unscheduled disassembly is going to affect the project

How will Artificial Intelligence affect crime war justice jobs society and our very sense of being human? The rise of AI has the potential to transform our future than any other technology and there's nobody better ualified or situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark an MIT professor who's helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficialHow can we grow our prosperity through au Unlike the author I will try to be concise and make my point clear1 There is so much name dropping authors books theories Ivy League Universities tv shows movies you name it it's gonna be there and basically it seems like a secondary literature review rather than an original work 2 Some chapters feels like fillers put there just to make the book thicker they add little to no useful information on Humans and AIs whatsoever 3 The long awaited like 300 pages awaited chapters on all the ethical uestions and consciousness which would have made the book worth reading for me are just a scratch on the surface and do not delve into the depth of these multilayered issues A show like Person of Interest which although the Prometheus AI takeover described in the book is uncannily similar to the one perpetrated by Samaritan is not even once cited in the book did a better job at dealing with both ethics machine learning and how human deal with two sentient and very different ASI And I know I know that's just sci fi but ultimately so is this book

Life 30 Being Human in the Age of Artificial IntelligenceTomation without leaving people lacking income or purpose? What career advice should we give today's kids? How can we make future AI systems robust so that they do what we want without crashing malfunctioning or getting hacked? Should we fear an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons? Will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks replacing humans on the job market and perhaps altogether? Nothing in this book was original All of the many topics covered in this book were covered in other books that I have read previously There was definitely a tedious feel to each of the chapters I think there is no important or interesting topic then super AI and the author is right when he wants to highlight the topic but please tell me things I don’t already know The author started each chapter by telling me something that I had already knew then he would tell me almost nothing than what I knew then he would summarize what he had said as if I had not already had read it elsewhere or within the chapter Overall the lack of depth of each topic presented made for a tedious presentationI’m not even bothered by the things I think he got wrong He makes a categorical error on the nature of our feelings He thinks of them as things or objects which give us our subjective reality subjectivity is his standard for self awareness consciousness I don’t think our feeling are things He also appealed to S1 uick verse S2 reflective memory states He had brought that up right after mentioning Popper’s falsification criteria I found that somewhat ironic because S1 S2 definitely fall into the pseudo science realm because there is no experiment in principal that I could design that would refute that S1 S2 paradigmatic hypothesis I had a lot of these kinds of problems with this book but the book failed mostly because it was superficial and it did not give a compelling narrative to wow the reader There is no interesting topic than super AI It gets at the heart of what it means to be human what our purpose and meaning is what is consciousness is there other complex life in the universe yes super AI relates to the Fermi paradox with self replicating von Neumann machines and even whether or not we are living within a simulation by all means check out Neil deGrasse Tyson’s ‘are we living in a simulation’ hosted debate It is well worth the two hours and there is a way to tie Martin Heidegger into the discussion because his ready at hand present at hand and dasein schema means that solipsism is nonsensical and conscious self aware machines are not possible his opinion not mine or one could mention Hegel in detail on these topics because of his relating the in itself to the for itself to the other or in other words the subjective to the objective to spirit or self awareness but this author definitely didn’t have much philosophy behind him and it showed by his lack of depth regarding philosophy or philosophy of science I have a weakness for books about AI There should be no way that they bore me but this author did that by not being able to connect the dots and by only telling me things that were overly familiar and having no real philosophical background as a foundation Read Bostrom’s or Kurzweil’s or Pedro Domingos’ book or either of Harari’s books Each except for Domingo was mentioned in this book
