Will Computers Revolt?

Rave Reviews! for Will Computers Revolt?

Newly Revised and Updated Artificial Intelligence Book


1/30/2020 Washington, DC—FutureAI Press announced today, the new edition of the exceptionally well-reviewed and Kirkus "Notable" book, Will Computers Revolt? Preparing for the Future of Artificial Intelligence, written by Charles J. Simon, BSEE, MSCS.  Kirkus Reviews says, "bold and rigorous".

Additionally, Publishers Weekly says, "Simon makes a welcome contribution…an appealing blend of philosophy and hard science from a thoughtful writer with a knack for bringing the esoteric down to earth…".  A sampling of other reviews are:  Foreword Reviews, "…interesting, timely and thoughtful"; Engadget, "interesting, thought-provoking"; and, the Irish Tech News, says "…well written, and well reasoned…explains the key issues and questions we need to be asking ourselves." 

Artificial Intelligence (AI), the ability of computers to think like humans, may seem like a sci-fantasy set far in the future, but in reality, it is right around the corner. Without a degree in Computer Engineering how can one understand what this technology is, how it works, and what it means for our society as a whole?

Will Computers Revolt? gives readers an excellent place to start. This well-researched and provocative book offers many real-world examples to interest the computer novice, along with enough technical detail to convince even the most well-versed computer scientist. Written in layman's language, Simon invites readers of all backgrounds to explore the world of computer intelligent technology and how we can best prepare to avoid potential future disaster.


"Will AI become smarter than humans?" asks Simon. "The answer is yes, as the march of technology will lead to computers with more processing power than the human brain. The future is inevitable and decisions we make today will impact the future of humankind."
