“VERY intelligently written.”—Bernard Sigaud, French editor. The CLEAREST (& FUNNIEST) Guide to what ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE **IS.** Also, a satirical “how-to” book about future relationships (and even marriage!) with robots and avatars. Slightly shocking.
Dating AI is “a meditation on how to prepare for the unknown,” a thought experiment designed to stimulate new ideas about issues that are important now as well as in the future. Fictional descriptions of human-android romances are interspersed with commentary about the varying differences between people and AI (Artificial Intelligence), and methods for breaching the chasm between machine and human experience. Chapters tie speculation into contemporary life, drawing parallels between current human interactions with machines.
Dating AI is an entertaining, sexy, humorous exploration: not only of a possible future, but also of our rapidly changing present relationships with other people and technology. Discerning readers will be compelled to utilize their imaginations, again and again, in an attempt to depict the Psychology of the Future, which looks to be significantly different from anything Freud might have considered. Provides numerous insights into relationships of the strictly human kind, too! Great quotations (throughout) and bibliography make this a richly rewarding read.
