AI-AGI Revolution – Will This Change What It Means To Be Human?

AI-AGI Revolution by Ms. Bella St John concerns the development of Artificial Intelligence. The concept of Artificial Intelligence has been around for many years and has been a part of our lives through our regular usage of smartphones and the internet. The problem with creating something that thinks and grows on its own without the need for human intervention is that one day it will be equal to the performance of human beings. With the constant advancements in Artificial Intelligence and Advanced General Intelligence, will humanity be replaced by nothing more than machines that can arguably function better than our organic minds? Will it redefine the meaning of being human?

AI-AGI Revolution by Ms. Bella St John offers an incredible insight into the extent of AI and AGI’s capabilities. I liked the way this book showed key differences between the Industrial Revolution and the invention of AI and AGI, which might end up jeopardizing humanity in the long run. Another interesting topic in this book is the ethical question of creating a ‘conscious’ machine. Not only does the author discuss various intriguing topics related to AI and AGI, but she has also summed up the differences between AI and AGI wonderfully. This book is also littered with countless examples and applications of AI and AGI in our lives both now and in the future, along with its impact on humankind. This is an eye-opening and mind-blowing read that will keep you thinking for hours after you have finished this book.

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.

“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.”
