We stand at the beginning of a new era. What was once science fiction is fast becoming reality, as AI transforms war, crime, justice, jobs and society - and even our very sense of what it means to be human. More than any other technology, AI has the potential to revolutionise our collective future - and there's nobody better situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark, an MIT professor and cofounder of the Future of Life Institute, whose work has helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial.
In this deeply researched and vitally important new book, Tegmark takes us to the heart of thinking about AI and the human condition, bringing us face to face with the essential questions of our time. What sort of future do we want? Life 3.0 gives us the tools to join what may be the most important conversation of our time.

Entertaining and thought provoking.
I have been waiting for this to come to audible, as Tegmark's mathematical universe is one of my favourite popular physics book. It does not disappoint. The subject matter is such an important one, that this book, as well as Nick Bostrom's superintelligence, should be mandatory reading for all politicians. Life 3.0 examines the great benefits and immense dangers, that artificial intelligence will offer in the decades to come, and does so in a superbly entertaining way. A word too for Rob Shapiro, who narrated Tegmark's previous book, as he does a faultless job here also. Highly recommended.

A good beginning to the end life 2.0
Definitions and concepts to ideas that are changing the world while humanity fights over gods and philosophies of other centuries, the shock will hit so hard it will change everything or everything will burn.
Politicians are pushing for population growth to stimulate economies and importing humans with retrograde religions to boost modern societies while these societies are advancing modes of technology that will diminish the necessity of ever-growing numbers of human to stimulate economies, and by the very nature of this technologies and sciences contradicting the exitance of god and our own importance as biological beings in this plane of reality. Time to have science influence politics a lot more than just as a possible future, but because science is the main engine of the future good or bad, and having social change created by half blind demagogs will not put us in line with the future shock.
Excelente expose of how our world is changing and how little of this information is bleeding into the general public as a possible total game changer.

Great book. But not much new
It's a great book on a great topic. If you've already read homo deus, super intelligence or read about AI online, you will not learn much new though. But it is very well written.

Consciousness is physics!
I loved it. I am going to read it twice and more. It made me think of start reading physics for fun. It left me wondering maybe there could be law of physics that could illustrate witchcraft or Black Magic!! Max Tegemark what do you think? Come to Tanzania there are people seen instructing the sky to rain or a light to strike! Imagine transforming that lighting energy to electricity, we could bury the thought of Africa is a land of darkness!🤔
