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
I recommend people read Life 3.0.      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

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
