Why I Wrote This
For a long time, AI was considered a novel toy that nobody—except for the tech-inclined curious—took very seriously. But once it started to make a big splash at places like Google and Facebook, I knew the world would eventually recognize just how big of a deal this set of technologies is.
Fast forward to the release of ChatGPT, and suddenly everyone is excited and/or concerned about what AI is capable of. I originally wrote this book back in 2016, but at the time the threat of AI taking jobs seemed a lot more abstract to the majority of people.
Now we're all staring dramatic technological upheaval right in the face. What can we do in the face of godlike machines? I do think there's hope, but, as you'll see...we might all be screwed. If we aren't, then this book will be a great resource for you. If we are, well, you can still learn and benefit from what I've put together.
