    1 thought on “The Second Intelligent Species: How Humans Will Become as Irrelevant as Cockroaches”

    1. Obviously not the best written book on the topic, but it is a clear message that many people are ignoring. The ideas expressed here should be more popular because AI is coming as long as we don't find a way to cause a mass human extinction first.

    2. a short and brilliant book which is summarizing and explaining in easy terms basically everything what really matters in the coming decades.

    3. Nice short book about the coming artificial intelligence revolution and how we better get our shit together/treat each other with some kindness before the AI gets here. I especially like the parts about Basic income and wealth inequality. On the down side, the author makes several repetitive assumptions about what will definitely happen in the future, but hey anything about the future is by nature speculation anyway, so I let it slide in my judgement of the book- a minor annoyance. Over all impo [...]

    4. I was very disappointed with this book. I was expecting more from this author. It is really two books the first masquerades as a scientific cover for a second Utopian work of fiction. In the first book the author is much impressed with Moore's law as if it is as dependable as gravity and will go on and on without end. Never a mention of diminishing returns or the speed of light. Second he states that machine consciousness is an inevitable fact. Never once acknowledging that we don't even underst [...]

    5. I do agree with several other reviewers that this book is written in a rather simplistic, question-and-answer fashion. It reads more like a lecture than a book, and cites frequently as a source (not a good sign). However, I do support Brain's central thesis: robots will perform most or all labor-intensive tasks in the near future, leading to massive human unemployment. I like his premise of guaranteeing every human being a Basic Income once robots replace humans in retail, truck driving, fast f [...]

    6. This book is a curious mix of poor and great ideas. The first part is more analytical and has a lot of unsubstantiated statements that had me close to quit reading the book, especially when it uses economic arguments.The second part is the booklet Manna that describes both a technological dystopia and utopia based on the same fundamental AI and robotics innovations, but differing social arrangements. It has some very interesting and original ideas.Thus the mixed review.

    7. Despite I believe the basics of his future predictions will really materialize I found it too speedballing thorough conclusions that cannot be taken for granted the way he does.He has surpassed the boundary to mysticism and not in a very fashionable way.

    8. This book and its companion novella “Manna” are at least well-written. Despite the author’s successes with “How Things Work” and National Geographic’s “The Factory Floor”, he has run off the rails of rationality and objectivity with these books.It is difficult to tell which one is the “science fiction” parable and which is a non-fiction prognostication. Of course, “future predictions” are properly fiction in all cases, regardless of the purported historic data. In this ca [...]

    9. The limitations of logic are the quality of the premise set.We cannot know/understand the premise set of AI, particularly nearly omniscient AI.Can't argue against the implications of evert increasing, and even more so ever increasing rate of increase in productivity
