DESCRIPTION:

The dystopian promise of artificial intelligence is to return home to a paradise in which our own creation is our God and we take on the task of recognizing and making decisions.


They say, algorithms rule the world today and even more tomorrow.

We sit at the wheel of self-driving cars and control more and more social processes.

How do we program them and what happens when they finally program themselves?

The fear is as great as the hope and the moral dilemma.

Are algorithms allowed to decide who has to die in an emergency? Will artificial intelligence take away people's free will, protect them from themselves and send them back to the paradise of indecision? This book invites to philosophical speculation about our future. It is about the aporias and paradoxes of artificial intelligence. It wanders around in thought, connects the apparently unconnected and in the end sees in the inventors of Silicon Valley no more and no less than the managing directors of Hegel's Weltgeist.
