內容簡介

人工智能讓我們的生活更方便 但當它超越人工智慧的時候呢……

  我們總是相信,未來人工智能將不可或缺,而背後操控人工智能的,還是我們人類。然而,會不會其實我們根本沒有任何控制權呢?以智慧型裝置Alexa來說,我們和Alexa對話後,就提供了數據資料給我們根本看不到、且無監控機制的系統,這樣的狀況下,我們又能控制什麼呢?

  九大企業——Amazon、Google、Facebook、Tencent、百度、阿里巴巴、微軟、IBM和Apple——可以說是人工智能的最新主宰,並且正一點一滴的改變我們的未來以為他們的企業創下更大的利潤。

  Amy Webb為我們揭露,人工智能願景早已不如我們所想,無論是為這個體系工作的人、發揚人工智能的動機乃至人工智能本身,都已經變調了。在我們有生之年,人工智能將會被研發成行為難以預料、想法和動作都會與人類邏輯相左的系統。

  看完本書,我們會找到改變的途徑,並讓我們從程式演算的決策與企業操控下解放出來。(文/博客來編譯)

  A call-to-arms about the broken nature of artificial intelligence, and the powerful corporations that are turning the human-machine relationship on its head.

  We like to think that we are in control of the future of "artificial" intelligence. The reality, though, is that we--the everyday people whose data powers AI--aren't actually in control of anything. When, for example, we speak with Alexa, we contribute that data to a system we can't see and have no input into--one largely free from regulation or oversight. The big nine corporations--Amazon, Google, Facebook, Tencent, Baidu, Alibaba, Microsoft, IBM and Apple--are the new gods of AI and are short-changing our futures to reap immediate financial gain.

  In this book, Amy Webb reveals the pervasive, invisible ways in which the foundations of AI--the people working on the system, their motivations, the technology itself--is broken. Within our lifetimes, AI will, by design, begin to behave unpredictably, thinking and acting in ways which defy human logic. The big nine corporations may be inadvertently building and enabling vast arrays of intelligent systems that don't share our motivations, desires, or hopes for the future of humanity.

  Much more than a passionate, human-centered call-to-arms, this book delivers a strategy for changing course, and provides a path for liberating us from algorithmic decision-makers and powerful corporations.

  Review

  "The Big Nine is provocative, readable, and relatable. Amy Webb demonstrates her extensive knowledge of the science driving AI and the geopolitical tensions that could result between the US and China in particular. She offers deep insights into how AI could reshape our economies and the current world order, and she details a plan to help humanity chart a better course."―Anja Manuel, Stanford University, cofounder and partner RiceHadleyGates

  "The Big Nine is an important and intellectually crisp work that illuminates the promise and peril of AI. Will AI serve its three current American masters in Washington, Silicon Valley and Wall Street or will it serve the interests of the broader public? Will it concentrate or disperse economic and geopolitical power? We can thank Amy Webb for helping us understand the questions and how to arrive at answers that will better serve humanity than our current path. The Big Nine should be discussed in classrooms and boardrooms around the world."―Alec Ross, author of The Industries of the Future

  "The Big Nine makes bold predictions regarding the future of AI. But unlike many other prognosticators, Webb sets sensationalism aside in favor of careful arguments, deep historical context, and a frightening degree of plausibility."―Jonathan Zittrain, George Bemis Professor of International Law and professor of Computer Science, Harvard University

  "The Big Nine is thoughtful and provocative, taking the long view and most of all raising the right issues around AI and providing a road map for an optimistic future with AI."―Peter Schwartz, senior vice president, Salesforce.com, and author of The Art of the Long View

  "Webb's potential scenarios for specific futures are superb, providing detailed visions for society to avoid as well as achieve."―John C. Havens, executive director, IEEE Global Initiative on Ethics of Autonomous and Intelligent Systems

  "Her writing is very clear and accessible, and the interesting analogies she uses to illustrate what may occur when algorithms make decisions for us make for compelling reading. This fascinating look at how AI will continue to revolutionize human experiences in unimaginable ways will appeal to anyone interested in AI, human-computer interactions, and machine learning in the private and public sectors."―Booklist

  PRAISE FOR THE SIGNALS ARE TALKING:

  "Webb teaches us to listen...[she] combines well-researched, reader-friendly insights on Google, drones and artificial intelligence with a system of questions you can bring to your next strategy meeting..."―Chicago Tribune

  "Webb provides a logical way to sift through today's onslaught of events and information to spot coming changes in your corner of the world." ―Kirkus Reviews

  "Sitting somewhere between Nate Silver and The Tipping Point, Amy Webb's book provides a practical guide for leaders - at any level - in the age of Big Data, offering tools for picking out the 'true signal, a pattern that will coalesce into a trend with the potential to change everything' - and land on the right side of disruption." ―Jon Foro, The Amazon Book Review (An Amazon Best Book of December 2016)
