AI-AGI Revolution Book

Book is Available on

The world has already changed – The genie (AI) is out of the bottle, but this is a genie of our own making, and one that we designed to think, learn, grow, and develop on its own, without the need for human involvement.

Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak and over 1,000 other influential people in the field have already signed an open letter requesting a pause on the development of AI, citing security concerns and stating, “AI systems with human-competitive intelligence can pose profound risks to society and humanity”.

Italy has gone so far as to ban, at least temporarily, the AI application, ChatGPT, following a security breach where “it was possible for some users to see another active user’s first and last name, email address, payment address, the last four digits (only) of a credit card number, and credit card expiration date,” according to an OpenAI spokesman.

This book, “AI-AGI Revolution: Will This Change What It Means to Be HUMAN?”, takes readers on a journey to explore these issues, the incredible potential of Artificial Intelligence (AI) and advanced General Intelligence (AGI), the incredible challenges, and the incredible potential impact on what it means to be ‘human’.

From the promises of technological utopianism to the existential questions raised by attempts to recreate human intelligence, AI-AGI Revolution discusses the most remarkable area of technological advancement in recent history.

This book explores the moral, ethical, economic and cultural implications of human-like AI systems, and the implications of an AGI system that would certainly surpass humans with reference to its intellectual abilities.

“More than anything, this book is an exploration of the subject to promote discussion and debate,” added author, Ms Bella St John. AI is not good, nor bad – but where we go from here is something that needs informed consideration. My hope is that this book provides food for thought – no more, no less.”

Explore topics ranging from:

  • An overview of the AI Revolution
  • Why I felt the need to co-author this book with AI
  • AI outpacing Moore’s Law
  • The comparisons between child developmental psychology and ChatGPT
  • AI’s propensity to convincingly make stuff up

…and so much more – including my thoughts on ‘co-authoring’ a book with artificial intelligence.

“I hope this book inspires people to talk with each other – really talk with each other on the topic of AI. Not to have a right or a wrong, but to explore the topic. Only by doing what seems to have become a lost art (ie having a discussion and respecting all viewpoints whether one agrees with them or not) will we be able to navigate this exciting but challenging time ahead”.

Thank you – and if you would like to get in touch to continue the conversation, I look forward to hearing from you.
