Great Guide

There's a lot of high-level thinking here, but the author did a great job presenting this with the average listener in mind so that I could grasp (most of) the concepts.

Excellent •••

If you are into this theme and always wanted to get a rough overview, I would recommend this book. As it is always the case with non-fiction, I also recommend reading/get perspectives from other AI professionals as well, which I will do as the next steps.

One of the Best

So, I'm new to AI, and even though I do know some technical stuff, I'm no professional. I got this book because I am interested in AI and what possibilities there are for our life. Even though some parts of the book were repetitive, it provided a good summary and outlook about AI and the effect on our life.

Brilliant

He finishes his book optimistically, describing the work he does at the Future of Life Institute he has founded. If you want to follow an enthrolling, captivating book on AI, choose this one. Not that it needs any promotion after it was praised by Elon Musk :).

The author did an amazing job

The author did an amazing job explaining the most likely outcomes with comparisons so simple, that even grandmas lacking technology knowledge could understand it. I never enjoyed science fiction, but Max used popular stories to better show ways AI development could go and kept it simple, steered clear of exaggerations.

This audiobook was very engaging

I appreciated that this audiobook was honest. It provided me a great knowledge of what real AI is, and how we are not even close to the wanted, revolutionary level of general AI that has real common sense.

A very accurate book unbiased.

He lightly but quickly investigates many facets of history and everyday technologies that may initially feel uncorrelated to AI... And gives them all in masterfully, producing the topic to a well-unified top!

Artificial Intelligence book

t has some fascinating knowledge, but there is no Bibliography, no Tributes at the back, it's like a lesson. But worth a GUIDE.
It seems a bit frightening at times what could happen with all this AI.

GENIUS

We are comparing times when machines start to know our world. There is a possibility, that shortly we will be working with Artificial Intelligence as equal partners. This idea split people into two groups. Some people suppose androids to be our slaves, and others think that people will be working for AI. How should we approach this new age? Should we destroy all electronics, or work harder to make AI more powerful as soon as possible?
