Arrival Mind by Louis Rosenberg is written by an expert in artificial intelligence (AI). It is an ingenious book highlighting the dangers of AI. There are two parts to the book. The first part is an illustrated story in which the illustrations are fabulously done by Anastasia Khmelevska. Louis Rosenberg cleverly uses the illustrated story to show what the consequences to human beings are if an entity came to Earth from an unknown world and extended his billion eyes and ears to practically all human activities. The second part is the thoughts of Louis Rosenberg related to the illustrated story and AI.
In today’s developed societies, AI is generally considered an advancement, which is supposed to help humans to be more productive and live a more comfortable, relaxed life. However, are humans fully aware of the consequences of living with AI? This is what Arrival Mind by Louis Rosenberg is all about. I really like the illustrated story as AI is represented by the entity. The consequence of living with AI is therefore pictorially depicted, which is an effective way to pass on the message to readers. The potent points of the illustrated story are then discussed in short paragraphs. This is an excellent use of both illustrations and text to convey the messages. Some of the points on AI really need serious thinking, such as “Many people falsely assume we will solve this problem by building AI systems in our own image”, and “Artificial minds are not created by writing software with carefully crafted rules.” Finally, the book ends on a positive note discussing how we can prepare for the arrival of AI. A highly recommended read for those who are working or just interested in AI!
