Apocalyptic ai: visions of heaven in robotics, artificial intelligence, and virtual reality. Oxford: Oxford University Press, 2010. Geraci argues that cyberspace is sacred space. Meaningful social activity takes place in virtual worlds in the form of Durkheimian collective effervescence. Chapter four addresses ethical questions raised by the possibility of robots achieving self-consciousness and attaining personhood. A final chapter treats the integration of religion, science, and technology. Geraci approaches his subject matter with both appreciation and critical scrutiny.
Apocalyptic AI has become a powerful force in modern culture. In this superb volume, Robert Geraci shines a light on this belief system, revealing what it is and how it is changing society. Topics: AI/Robotics Singularity/Futures .
Popular science books on robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) by Hans Moravec, Ray Kurzweil, and others .
Popular science books on robotics and artificial intelligence (AI) by Hans Moravec, Ray Kurzweil, and others argue that one day advances in robotics, AI and neurobiology will enable us to copy our conscious selves into machines, which will take over the cosmos and live eternally in a perfect world of supremely intelligent Mind.
He points out that the rhetoric of Apocalyptic AI is strikingly similar to that of the apocalyptic traditions of Judaism and Christianity-in both systems the believer is trapped in a dualistic universe and expects a resolution in which he or she will be translated to a transcendent new world and live forever in a glorified new body.
Apocalyptic AI, the hope that we might one day upload our minds into machines and live forever in cyberspace, has become commonplace. This view now affects robotics and AI funding, play in online games, and philosophical and theological conversations about morality and human dignity.
