Artificial “machine” intelligence is playing an ever-greater role in our society. We are already using cruise control in our cars, automatic checkout at the drugstore, and are unable to live without our smartphones. The discussion around AI is polarized; people think either machines will solve all problems for everyone, or they will lead us down a dark, dystopian path into total human irrelevance. Regardless of what you believe, the idea that we might bring forth intelligent creation can be intrinsically frightening. But what if our greatest role as humans so far is that of creators?


Amir Husain, a brilliant inventor and computer scientist, argues that we are on the cusp of writing our next, and greatest, creation myth. It is the dawn of a new form of intellectual diversity, one that we need to embrace in order to advance the state of the art in many critical fields, including security, resource management, finance, and energy. “In The Sentient Machine, Husain prepares us for a brighter future; not with hyperbole about right and wrong, but with serious arguments about risk and potential” (Dr. Greg Hyslop, Chief Technology Officer, The Boeing Company). He addresses broad existential questions surrounding the coming of AI: Why are we valuable? What can we create in this world? How are we intelligent? What constitutes progress for us? And how might we fail to progress? Husain boils down complex computer science and AI concepts into clear, plainspoken language and draws from a wide variety of cultural and historical references to illustrate his points. Ultimately, Husain challenges many of our societal norms and upends assumptions we hold about “the good life.”


人工「機器」智慧,在我們日常生活中扮演的角色益發吃重。我們已將其應用在車用導航、藥房自動結帳,而且智慧型手機對我們來說不可或缺。近來,人工智慧引發了二極化的反應。有些人主張,人類大部分的難題都能靠機器解決;有些人卻認為人工智慧將導致我們走上反烏托邦的暗黑之途,消弭人類之地位於無形。無論你相信什麼,人類可能創造出具有智慧的創造物,這樣的想法,確實會讓人不寒而慄。但是,如果人類迄今為止,最重要的角色是創造者呢?那該怎麼辦?
 
傑出的發明家和電腦科學家埃米爾・侯賽因認為,人類即將著手勾勒最偉大的造物神話。在智慧多樣化有新形式的拂曉之時,我們得敞開心胸面對,以加速各重要領域的技藝發展,例如安全、資源管理、金融和能源。
 
「侯賽因在《AI 創世紀》中,為我們預備了更光明的未來;並非誇張地談論對或錯,而是嚴肅地爭論風險和潛力。」(波音公司技術長格雷格・海斯洛普博士)他論述未來人工智慧問世,所要面對的一系列問題:人類為什麼很寶貴?人類在這世界上能創造什麼?人類究竟有多麼聰明?什麼促使人類進步?人類若難以進步,原因又是為何?侯賽因將複雜的電腦科學和人工智慧概念以清晰、直白的語言呈現,並加以說明各式各樣的文化和歷史文獻。最終,侯賽因挑戰許多社會常規,並且顛覆我們對「美好生活」的假設。
