Worth reading Life 3.0 by @Tegmark. AI will be the best or worst thing ever for humanity, so let’s get it right.      source
A deep, bold, and visionary dive into Artificial Intelligence and its many implications. One of the most interesting books I've ever read. If you haven't read much of AI yet, start with “Surviving AI” as an intro, then read this as a deep-dive. His perspective is amazingly thorough. Defining terminology was a great way to start. For example life is a “process that can retain its complexity and replicate”. Intelligence is the “ability to accomplish complex goals”. That keeps it broad enough to define future technology as alive and intelligent.      source

3/3 I’ve enjoyed these 3 books over the holidays: #GreenlightsBook by @McConaughey - Some principles on how he’s been searching for greenlights: those signs that help him take the right turn. I personally find them in data. This book helps us understand how to look for them.      source

@Alejandro_R_C As an intro, these ones helped me: - Life 3.0 / Max Tegmark - 21 Lessons for the 21st Century / Yuval Noah Harari - Homo Deus: A Brief History of Tomorrow / Yuval Noah Harari      source
I read this great book by @tegmark Highly recommended for all future generation, for everyone should think about AI. Thus in my opinion, since everyone should know about AI, the first half of the book should be required reading in high school.      source
