Intelligence unbound : the future of uploaded and machine minds by Russell Blackford( )

17 editions published in 2014 in English and held by 687 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

Someday in the not-too-distant future, the greatest-minds on Earth might be intelligent machines - conventional or quantum logic programs running on immensely powerful and ever smaller computers. But can human minds bound by biology possibly keep up? And will such artificial or enhanced minds turn against humanity, or will they join us in the search for deeper understanding and meaning? Might our own minds be uploaded into "machines of loving grace" - albeit ones working at the speed of light? These provocative questions are addressed -in Intelligence Unbound, a collection of state-of-the-art essays that explore the prospects, promises, and potential dangers of machine intelligence and uploaded minds. By deeply probing the nature and ethics of tomorrow's machine minds -and the possible convergence of humans and machines - the essays consider a variety of intriguing possibilities that could emerge from the inexorable advances of science and engineering. The essays are contributed by a wide range of innovative thinkers, including top scholars to the philosophy of consciousness, experts in Al development, and neuroscientists. All provide intriguing insights - with the occasional dash of skepticism - into the realms, of machine intelligence and uploaded minds. Scholarly and thought-provoking, Intelligence Unbound offers a serious and sobering glimpse into the possible future of humankind and machine

"Technology has started to accelerate at a terrifying rate. By mid-21st century, we might see a Singularity: a convergence of artificial intelligence, advanced nanotechnologies for building things at the atomic scale, precise genomics, other wonders. What happens after that? Will the descendants of today's humanity become gods or demons, or simply destroy themselves? And will we be among their number, carried along by rejuvenation and immortality treatments? For Natalie and her irritatingly beautiful young sister Suzanna, these are no longer abstract questions. The familiar world is on the brink of crisis. Dumped by her live-in boyfriend and stuck back at home with her parents, Nat is not a happy person. And her father Hugh is acting like a mad scientist. What the hell is he building out there in the garage? When Hugh frog-marches his family into the garage, it looks as if he's really gone mad, and they're due to perish even before the plague wipes out all life on earth. But the machine Hugh has been working on hurls them all--not forgetting their dog Ferdy--ever farther into the future, and the escapade doesn't stop until the very end of time and space"--Page 4 of cover

Science fiction explores the wonderful, baffling and wildly entertaining aspects of a universe unimaginably old and vast, and with a future even more immense. It reaches into that endless cosmos with the tools of rational investigation and storytelling. At the core of both science and science fiction is the engaged human mind--a consciousness that sees and feels and thinks and loves. But what is this mind, this aware and self-aware consciousness that seems unlike anything else we experience? What makes consciousness the Hard Problem of philosophy, still unsolved after millennia of probing? This book looks into the heart of this mystery - at the science and philosophy of consciousness and at many inspiring fictional examples - and finds strange, challenging answers. The book's content and entertaining style will appeal equally to science fiction enthusiasts and scholars, including cognitive and neuroscientists, as well as philosophers of mind. It is a refreshing romp through the science and science fiction of consciousness
