I highly recommend this book * Bill Gates *
very deep ... every paragraph has like six ideas embedded within it. * Nate Silver *
Nick Bostrom makes a persuasive case that the future impact of AI is perhaps the most important issue the human race has ever faced. Instead of passively drifting, we need to steer a course. Superintelligence charts the submerged rocks of the future with unprecedented detail. It marks the beginning of a new era * Stuart Russell, Professor of Computer Science, University of California, Berkley *
Those disposed to dismiss an 'AI takeover' as science fiction may think again after reading this original and well-argued book * Martin Rees, Past President, Royal Society *
This superb analysis by one of the worlds clearest thinkers tackles one of humanitys greatest challenges: if future superhuman artificial intelligence becomes the biggest event in human history, then how can we ensure that it doesnt become the last? * Max Tegmark, Professor of Physics, MIT *
Terribly important ... groundbreaking... extraordinary sagacity and clarity, enabling him to combine his wide-ranging knowledge over an impressively broad spectrum of disciplines - engineering, natural sciences, medicine, social sciences and philosophy - into a comprehensible whole... If this book gets the reception that it deserves, it may turn out the most important alarm bell since Rachel Carson's Silent Spring from 1962, or ever * Olle Haggstrom, Professor of Mathematical Statistics *
Valuable. The implications of introducing a second intelligent species onto Earth are far-reaching enough to deserve hard thinking * The Economist *
There is no doubting the force of [Bostroms] arguments the problem is a research challenge worthy of the next generations best mathematical talent. Human civilisation is at stake * Financial Times *
His book Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies became an improbable bestseller in 2014 * Alex Massie, Times (Scotland) *
Ein Text so nuchtern und cool, so angstfrei und dadurch umso erregender, dass danach das, was bisher vor allem Filme durchgespielt haben, auf einmal hoechst plausibel erscheint. A text so sober and cool, so fearless and thus all the more exciting that what has until now mostly been acted through in films, all of a sudden appears most plausible afterwards. (translated from German) * Georg Diez, DER SPIEGEL *
Worth reading.... We need to be super careful with AI. Potentially more dangerous than nukes * Elon Musk, Founder of SpaceX and Tesla *
A damn hard read * Sunday Telegraph *
I recommend Superintelligence by Nick Bostrom as an excellent book on this topic * Jolyon Brown, Linux Format *
Every intelligent person should read it. * Nils Nilsson, Artificial Intelligence Pioneer, Stanford University *
An intriguing mix of analytic philosophy, computer science and cutting-edge science fiction, Nick Bostrom's Superintelligence is required reading for anyone seeking to make sense of the recent surge of interest in artificial intelligence (AI). * Colin Garvey, Icon *
