Waterstones Says

Sounding a stark warning about the dangers of artificial intelligence, this updated edition of Barratt's landmark book discusses the ethics, history and practical implementation of AI.

Corporations and government agencies around the world have for years been pouring billions into achieving AI's Holy Grail - human-level intelligence. But 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. First published ten years ago, Our Final Invention predicted much of the artificial 'intelligence explosion' that is now ripping through our culture, and was named by Elon Musk as one of five books everyone should read about the future.

Now with an urgent new preface, James Barrat's landmark work explores the ethics, history and future 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?
