New book: “Surviving AI”. Review copies available

Pandora's Brain

Final coverI’ve just finished writing a non-fiction book on artificial intelligence, called Surviving AI.

It starts with a brief history of the science and a description of its current state.  It goes on to look at the benefits and risks that AI presents in the short and medium term, with a short story highlighting the improvements to everyday life that are in the pipeline, and discussions of technological unemployment and killer robots.

Then it gets into artificial general intelligence – machines with human-level cognition: whether we can create one, and if so when; whether we will like it if we do, and what we should do about it.

Surviving AI will be published this summer.  If you would like a review copy in PDF or mobi for Kindles, email me at cccalum at gmail.com.
