Human Cusp in print: Crisis of Control

The first book in the Human Cusp series is now available: Crisis of Control: How Artificial Superintelligences May Save or Destroy the Human Race is… a long enough title that I feel compelled to end the sentence already :-).

United Kingdom:




It’s available in Kindle and paperback at all of those links and probably many other countries besides.

It’s a balancing act to present existential threats in a way that gets people appropriately motivated without scaring them half to death. It can’t be boiled down to a soundbite without losing the essential facets that make the future potentially either catastrophe or utopia.

Welcome to readers who have seen one of my magazine articles! Feel free to comment and ask questions on this site.

I will be adding more elements to this site that help amplify my message through other media, such as video. And to get some conversations going about where we’re headed and what we can do to help.
