Lifeboat Foundation Launches 3 Books on the Future
Bitcoin Press Release: December 22, 2015 — The Lifeboat Foundation has launched 3 books! They
* “The Human Race to the Future: What Could Happen — and What to Do, Third Edition”, available in paperback at http://amzn.to/1Z9zzW5 and Kindle at http://amzn.to/1O6uADY
“Imaginative yet substantive, readable yet science oriented, and occasionally humorous, this book proposes future scenarios spanning from the current century to nearly eternity. Most chapters offer a concluding section with recommendations.”
* “Visions of the Future”, available in paperback at http://amzn.to/1P3omBK and Kindle at http://amzn.to/1mlfcaw
“In Visions of the Future you’ll find stories and essays about artificial intelligence, androids, faster-than-light travel, and the extension of human life. You’ll read about the future of human institutions and culture. But these literary works are more than just a reprisal of the classical elements of science fiction and futurism. At their core, each of these pieces has one consistent, repeated theme: us.”
* “Prospects for Human Survival”, available in paperback at http://amzn.to/222esrc and Kindle at http://amzn.to/1P4ibiE
“Advanced technologies such as computers, genetics, nanotech, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI) are progressing at an accelerating pace. Wells shows that the pace is too rapid for us to safely adapt. He makes a strong case for developing friendly superhuman AI as quickly as possible, hopefully a nurturing artificial overlord that will protect us from ourselves. The danger is that it will not be as friendly as we hope, but the alternative is unacceptable risk.”
