Boek cover Superintelligence van Nick Bostrom (Hardcover)
Paths, Dangers, Strategies
The human brain has some capabilities that the brains of other animals lack. It is to these distinctive capabilities that our species owes its dominant position. Other animals have stronger muscles or sharper claws, but we have cleverer brains. If machine brains one day come to surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could become very powerful. As the fate of the gorillas now depends more on us humans than on the gorillas themselves, so the fate of our species then would come to depend on the actions of the machine superintelligence. But we have one...

Boek cover Anthropic Bias van Nick Bostrom (Onbekend)
Observation Selection Effects in Science and Philosophy
Anthropic Bias explores how to reason when you suspect that your evidence is biased by "observation selection effects"--that is, evidence that has been filtered by the precondition that there be some suitably positioned observer to "have" the evidence. This conundrum--sometimes alluded to as "the anthropic principle," "self-locating belief," or "indexical information"--turns out to be a surprisingly perplexing and intellectually stimulating challenge, one abounding with important implications for many areas in science and philosophy. There are the philosophical thought experiments and...

Boek cover Superintelligentie van Nick Bostrom (Paperback)
kansen, gevaren, strategieen
We zullen op een dag kunstmatige intelligentie ontwikkelen die het menselijk brein voorbijstreeft in algemene intelligentie. Als een dergelijke superintelligentie ontwikkeld is, kan die ongekend krachtig worden. Het is gissen wanneer dit plaatsvindt, maar we dienen ons er goed op voor te bereiden. Wat zijn precies de gevaren van superintelligentie? Wat zijn de voordelen? Is het mogelijk om kunstmatige intelligentie zo te ontwerpen dat de mensheid een intelligentie-explosie kan overleven? Hoe beheersen we de groei van de machine-intelligentie? Nick Bostrom is hoogleraar aan de Faculty of...

Boek cover Collapse, Volume 1 van Robin Mackay (Onbekend)
Numerical Materialism
An investigation of the nature and philosophical uses of number. The first volume of Collapse investigates the nature and philosophical uses of number. The volume includes an interview with Alain Badiou on the relation between philosophy, mathematics, and science, an in-depth interview with mathematician Matthew Watkins on the strange connections between physics and the distribution of prime numbers, and contributions that demonstrate the many ways in which number intersects with philosophical thought—from the mathematics of intensity to terrorism, from occultism to information theory,...
