- WHAT TO THINK ABOUT MACHINES THAT THINK : TODAY'S LEADING THINKERS ON THE AGE OF MACHINE INTELLIGENCE
DetailsAs the world becomes ever more dominated by technology, Brockman asks more than 175 scientists, philosophers, and artists:What do you think about machines that think?The development of artificial intelligence has been a source of fascination and anxiety ever since Alan Turing formalized the concept in 1950. Today, Stephen Hawking believes that AI "could spell the end of the human race." At the very least, its development raises complicated moral issues with powerful real-world implications--for us and for our machines.Recording artist Brian Eno proposes that we're already part of an AI: global civilization, orwhat TED curator Chris Anderson elsewhere calls the hive mind.And author Pamela McCorduck considers what drives us to pursue AI in the first place.On the existential threat posed by superintelligent machines, Steven Pinker questions the likelihood of a robot uprising.Douglas Coupland traces discomfort with human-programmed AI to deeper fears about what constitutes "humanness."ABOUT THE AUTHOR: The founder and publisher of the influential online science salon Edge.org,John Brockman is the editor of The Universe, Thinking, This Explains Everything, This Will Make You Smarter, Culture, The Mind, This Will Change Everything, What Is Your Dangerous Idea?, What We Believe but Cannot Prove, and other volumes.
