The Age of Em
- Work, Love, and Life When Robots Rule the Earth
- By: Robin Hanson
- Narrated by: Michael Butler Murray
- Length: 15 hrs and 51 mins
Robots may one day rule the world, but what is a robot-ruled Earth like? Many think the first truly smart robots will be brain emulations, or ems. Scan a human brain, then run a model with the same connections on a fast computer, and you have a robot brain, but recognizably human. Train an em to do some job and copy it a million times; an army of workers is at your disposal. When they can be made cheaply, within perhaps a century, ems will displace humans in most jobs.
An analytical book suited as a reference book

Just plain awful, some thing that could be said within 1 hour, unnecessarily and painfully prolonged.
within 1 hour, unnecessarily and painfully prolonged. The author assumes throwing big words around makes him sound interacting. The worst book on AI I had listened to so far.
