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?
