In Our Own Image: Savior or Destroyer? The History and by George Zarkadakis

By George Zarkadakis

A well timed and demanding publication that explores the background and destiny, in addition to the societal and moral implications, of synthetic Intelligence as we method the cusp of a fourth business revolution

Zarkadakis explores one in every of humankind's oldest love-hate relationships—our ties with man made intelligence, or AI. He strains AI's origins in historical fantasy, via literary classics like Frankenstein, to today's sci-fi blockbusters, arguing fascination with AI is hardwired into the human psyche. He explains AI's background, know-how, and power; its manifestations in clever machines; its connections to neurology and awareness, in addition as—perhaps such a lot tellingly—what AI unearths approximately us as human beings.

In Our personal Image argues that we're near to a fourth commercial revolution—poised to go into the age of man-made Intelligence as technology fiction turns into technology truth. eventually, Zarkadakis observes, the destiny of AI has profound implications for the way forward for technology and humanity itself.
