Publisher's Summary

Artificial intelligence is transforming human society fundamentally and profoundly. Not since the Enlightenment and the Age of Reason have we changed how we approach knowledge, politics, economics, even warfare.

Three of our most accomplished and deep thinkers come together to explore artificial intelligence (AI) and the way it is transforming human society - and what it means for us all.

An AI learned to win chess by making moves human grand masters had never conceived. Another AI discovered a new antibiotic by analysing molecular properties human scientists did not understand. Now, AI-powered jets are defeating experienced human pilots in simulated dogfights. AI is coming online in searching, streaming, medicine, education and many other fields and, in so doing, transforming how humans are experiencing reality.

In The Age of AI, three leading thinkers have come together to consider how AI will change our relationships with knowledge, politics and the societies in which we live. The Age of AI is an essential road map to our present and our future, an era unlike any that has come before.

Overly long with a few key take aways

seemed repetitive. it feels like they could have made their point in half the time. worthwhile of it is your intro to all things AI.

Definitely worth reading.

An interesting book that should be read by policy makers and politicians. The analogy with the need for a policy and regulatory framework like that applies for nuclear weapons was very interesting and something I had not thought of.

The various discussions of the multiple impacts of AI was also interesting.
