--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. ... "Our Final Invention" makes an excellent read for technophiles as well as readers wishing to get a glimpse of the near future as colored by rapidly improving technological competence." --"New York Journal of Books
""A dark new book by James Barrat, "Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era, " lays out a strong case for why we should be at least a little worried." --NewYorker.com
"You can skip coffee this week -- "Our Final Invention "will keep you wide-awake." --Singularity Hub
"Barrat has talked to all the significant American players in the effort to create recursively self-improving artificial general intelligence in machines. He makes a strong case that AGI with human-level intelligence will be developed in the next couple of decades. ... His thoughtful case about the dangers of ASI gives even the most cheerful technological optimist much to think about." --"Reason
""If you read just one book that makes you confront scary high-tech realities that we'll soon have no choice but to address, make it this one." --"The Washington Post "

Reseña del editor:

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?
