Product description


"Pithy essays on artificial intelligence. . . . Readers . . . will not find a better introduction than this book."--Kirkus

"While the [Possible Minds] authors disagree on the answers, they agree on the major question: what dangers might AI present to humankind? Within that framework, the essays offer a host of novel ideas. . . . Enlightening, entertaining, and exciting reading."--Publishers Weekly
