This article will give you a review of the book “Scary Smart: The Future of Artificial Intelligence and How You Can Save Our World”.

Artificial intelligence outperforms human intelligence. It can digest data at breakneck speed and stay concentrated on a single job without being distracted. AI can forecast events in the future and utilize sensors to look around physical and virtual corners. So, why does AI get it so wrong all of the time? We are the solution. The algorithms that describe how artificial intelligence works are created by humans, and the processed data represents an imperfect reality. Is this a sign that we’re doomed? Scary Smart, by Mo Gawdat, the worldwide popular author of Solve for Happy, answers this issue and demonstrates what we can all do right now to educate ourselves and our machines on how to live better. No one is better qualified than Mo Gawdat to explain how the Artificial Intelligence of the future works, given his more than thirty years of experience working at the bleeding edge of technology and his prior job as Google [X]’s top commercial officer.

AI will be a billion times smarter than humans by 2049. Scary Smart discusses how to correct the present course today for AI in the future to be able to save the human species. This book provides a roadmap for what we can do to protect ourselves, our loved ones, and the world as a whole. Mo Gawdat said that technology is placing our humanity in jeopardy on a never-before-seen scale. This book is not intended for code writers or policymakers who claim to be able to govern it. This is the book you’ve been looking for. Because, believe it or not, you are the only one who can solve the problem.
