Artificial you : AI and the future of your mind

By: Schneider, SusanMaterial type: TextTextPublisher: Princeton Princeton University Press 2019Description: 180pISBN: 9780691180144Subject(s): ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE | HUMAN COMPUTER INTERACTIONDDC classification: 006.3 SCH Summary: Author of the book says that it is inevitable that AI will take intelligence in new directions but urges that it is up to us to carve out a sensible path forward. As AI technology turns inward, reshaping the brain, as well as outward, potentially creating machine minds, it is crucial to beware. Author also argues that an insufficient grasp of the nature of these entities could undermine the use of AI and brain enhancement technology. There is a sober-minded discussion of what AI can truly achieve: Can robots really be conscious? Can we merge with AI, as tech leaders like Elon Musk and Ray Kurzweil suggest? Is the mind just a program? Examining these thorny issues, Schneider proposes ways we can test for machine consciousness, questions whether consciousness is an unavoidable by-product of sophisticated intelligence and considers the overall dangers of creating machine minds.
