Product description

Review

"... lively writing and clear presentation of these important topics. It certainly deserves a wide readership." - Sir Martin Rees, Astronomer Royal and author of Our Final Hour "... a well written and an easy to follow book. It addresses the most important problem faced by humanity, namely, how artificial superintelligence will impact the human race and how it can be controlled... Describes a number of interesting options worthy of consideration." -Roman Yampolskiy, Author of Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach --This text refers to the paperback edition.

About the Author

Peter J. Scott's résumé reads like a Monty Python punchline: half business coach, half information technology specialist, half teacher, three-quarters daddy. After receiving a master's degree in Computer Science from Cambridge University, he has worked for NASA's Jet Propulsion Laboratory as an employee and contractor for over thirty years, helping advance our exploration of the Solar System. Over the years, he branched out into writing technical books and training. Yet at the same time, he developed a parallel career in "soft" fields of human development, getting certifications in NeuroLinguistic Programming from founder John Grinder and in coaching from the International Coaching Federation. In 2007 he co-created a convention honoring the centennial of the birth of author Robert Heinlein, attended by over 700 science fiction fans and aerospace experts, a unique fusion of the visionary with the concrete. Bridging these disparate worlds positions him to envisage a delicate solution to the existential crises facing humanity. He lives in the Pacific Northwest with his wife and two daughters, writing the Human Cusp blog on dealing with exponential change. --This text refers to the paperback edition.
