Welcome to Superintelligence. This is the book that potentially arms us against our own creations. Are we really ready for machine superintelligence? Will this new intelligence surpass humanity in general intelligence?
This new super-intelligent entity could become extremely powerful and decide the fate of humankind.
We get to make the first move. How do we survive this explosion? Are we ready for this explosive intelligence? Is it possible to construct a seed artificial intelligence, or "reach criticality", so we can engineer initial conditions such that an intelligence explosion is survivable?
