Superintelligence Book Review Score: ★★★★★ 5/5 stars

Superintelligence is a great book. Our editors rated it with a top 5 stars.

This seminal book injects the topic of superintelligence into the academic and popular mainstream. What happens when machines surpass humans in general intelligence? Will artificial agents save or destroy us? In a tour de force of analytic thinking, Bostrom lays a foundation for understanding the future of humanity and intelligent life.

    For a first entry into the potential danger of ASI I recommend James Barrat's "Our Final Invention" as an easier more direct read, particularly as a layman. Bostrom's excellent and more thorough book is better for those who want to delve deeper into the problem.
