"Better without AI" by David Chapman

Submitted Jan 11, 2024

About the book

“Better without AI” explores the transformative potential of artificial intelligence, emphasizing the current reality of powerful AI, as demonstrated by advanced text generators like ChatGPT. Rather than focusing on malevolent robots, it delves into the concept of “moderate apocalypses” resulting from technologies shaping our social and cultural landscape. The book highlights the risk of AI systems making decisions beyond our comprehension, potentially leading to a loss of understanding and control over our world. It suggests seven practical actions to mitigate disasters and calls for immediate collective effort to shape a positive future. Ultimately, the focus is on introspective questions about the kind of future we desire, the role of AI, and our responsibility in shaping that future.

This book is by David Chapman. He holds a PhD in artificial intelligence.
