I think it's not an easy book to read. He tried to dig deep in many issues, sometimes also in some still undiscovered problems. I think it is really a good one! No problem with the seller: in time and in perfect conditions
Il libro è senza dubbio un buon inizio per cominciare a capire cosa sono le AI e i possibili scenari futuri del suo sviluppo. Talvolta è un po' troppo prolisso sulla descrizione di possibili scenari, ipotizzando svariate possibili casistiche, a volte basate su supposizioni troppo articolate.
Nick Bostrom has been studying artificial intelligence for many years. This book represents a synthesis of his thought on the matter, and it was written for the general public, although there are parts which are philosophically quite technical. Excellent work on something we all should be thinking about.
Even though the subject appears to have been extensively researched and thought out, and in spite of the occasional spark of brilliancy, I found the book essentially naive from a philosophical point of view. While the narrative espoused by the author can easily be deconstrued as the umpteenth recapitulation of the Golem mythology under a thin secular veneer, the underlying choice of values is largely implicit, acritical and taken for granted, and at least in part is likely to be found repulsive by anybody with a posthumanist, Futurist or Nietzschean mindset. All in all, this book probably epitomises the final departure of Nick Bostrom from the transhumanist camp.
