It's on my reading list, though not so much because of the AI stuff but because of the causality stuff...

By the way, if you're interested in causality per se, a great book I have read is Phil Dowe's _Physical Causation_.

I also recommend _The Oxford Handbook of Causation_. In fact, all the Oxford Handbooks I've read so far have been very helpful and great references. I don't pretend to comprehend them, but they're good to have around.
