The Most Human Human: A Defence of Humanity in the Age of the Computer
Description:
Remarkable, enjoyable, heartening. A philosophical joyride connecting the thoughts of Aristotle with David Brent ... The day that a machine creates work of such wit and originality, we should all be very worried (The Times )Lively, thought-stirring, entertaining ... an invaluable sourcebook on computing in modern-day life ... compelling insights (John Gray New Statesman )Tremendously entertaining ... explores human identity by asking what we can glean about ourselves from successes and failures in the field of artificial intelligence (Metro **** )Fast-paced, witty, and thoroughly winning ... investigates the nature of human interactions, the meaning of language, and the essence of what sets us apart from machines ... fabulous (Publishers Weekly )Excellent ... a fascinating explanation of what it means to be human ... In one particularly insightful section, Christian notes that we can only be replaced by machines if we have first allowed ourselves to become like them (Financial Times )Immensely ambitious and bold, intellectually provocative, while at the same time entertaining and witty - a delightful book about how to live a meaningful, thriving life (Alan Lightman, Author Of Einstein's Dreams )Such an important book ... Brian Christian takes on this very weighty task, and somehow makes it fun (Brian Shenk, Author Of The Genius In All Of Us )A lively personable read and an empowering affirmation of our species (Time Out **** )An eye-opening inquest into human imagination, thought, conversation, love and deception (David Eagleman, author of Sum )Absorbing ... Christian cleverly suggests that the Turing Test not only tells us how smart computers are but also teaches us about ourselves. ... covers a great deal of ground with admirable clarity but with a lightness of touch ... has a real knack for summing up key ideas by applying them to real-life situations (Julian Baggini Wall Street Journal )An irreverent picaresque ... What Christian learns along the way is that if machines win the imitation game as often as they do, it's not because they're getting better at acting human; it's because we're getting worse ... An authentic son of Frost, he learns by going where he has to go, and in doing so proves that both he and his book deserve their title (The New York Times )Strange, fertile and sometimes beautiful ... takes both the deep limitations and halting progress of artificial intelligence as an occasion for thinking about the most human activity (Matthew Crawford, Author Of The Case For Working With Your Hands )Entertaining and informative (Economist )
