James Barrat Our Final Invention Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era

Review :

While I've read other books that have covered or touched on the same or similar topics e.g.; Nick Bostrom's Superintelligence and Yuval Noah Harari's Sapiens and Homo Deus - and found those immensely informative (albeit worrisome), Barrat really has brought the whole AI issue into a really tight focus and done tremendous research and interviewing for this work. It is, needless to say, also some very ominous although illuminating reading. I think everyone needs to read it - and sooner rather than later because this is happening as we speak.
