Actions Shares. Newcomers and experts alike will learn much from it. Kurzweil is by far the most prominent spokesperson for the potential for AI to transform the world.
But while Kurzweil does acknowledge the risks of AI, his overall tone is dangerously optimistic, giving the false impression that all is well and we should proceed apace with AGI and other transformative technologies.
Our Final Invention does not make this mistake. Instead, it is unambiguous in its message of concern. Now, the cautious reader might protest, is AGI really something to be taken seriously? AGI today is a small branch of the broader AI field. I really wish this was the case. But there is reason to believe otherwise.
Back then, only a few researchers studied it and expressed concerns. But the trends were discernable then, and today climate change is international headline news. AI today has its own trends. More computing power means AIs can process more information, making them in some ways more intelligent. Similar trends exist in everything from software to neuroscience. For all its terrors, climate change proceeds slowly.
The worst effects will take centuries to kick in.
A transformative AI could come within just a few decades, or maybe even ten years. It could render climate change irrelevant. But AI is not like climate change in one key regard: at least for now, it lacks a scientific consensus. Indeed, most AI researchers dismiss the idea of an AI takeover. Even AGI researchers are divided what will happen and when. This was a core result of a study I conducted of AGI researchers in Given the divide, who should we believe? AI will inevitably progress, but it might not end up as radically transformative as Barrat and others expect.
However, the opposite could also be true too. For all my years thinking about this, I cannot rule out the possibility of some major AI event. The mere possibility should be enough to give us pause. Even an outside chance of a major AI event is enough to merit serious attention. With AI, the chance is not small. This brings us to the one area where Our Final Invention is unfortunately quite weak: solutions.
Most of the book is dedicated to explaining AI concepts and arguing that AI is important. I count only about half a chapter discussing what anyone can actually do about it. This is a regrettable omission.
An Inconvenient Truth suffers the same affliction.
There are two basic types of options available to protect against AI. First, we can design safe AI. Unfortunately, as the book points out, dangerous AI is easier and thus likely to come first.
Still, AI safety remains an important research area. Second, we can not design dangerous AI.
