Intelligence Unbound: The Future of Uploaded and Machine Minds
Russell Blackford (Editor), Damien Broderick (Editor)
Contains chapters by many well-known names, Max, Natasha, Anders, Robin, etc.
Someday in the not-too-distant future, the greatest minds on Earth might
be intelligent machines - conventional or quantum logic programs running on
immensely powerful and ever smaller computers. But can human minds bound by
biology possibly keep up? And will such artificial or enhanced minds turn
against humanity, or will they join us in the search for deeper understanding
and meaning? Might our own minds be uploaded into "machines of loving
grace" - albeit
ones working at the speed of light? These provocative questions are addressed
in Intelligence Unbound, a collection of state-of-the-art essays that
explore the prospects, promises, and potential dangers of machine intelligence
and uploaded minds.
