"What jobs should be automated? How should our legal systems handle autonomous systems? How likely is the emergence of suprahuman intelligence? A.I. is the future of science, technology, and business--and there is no person better qualified or situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark. What has A.I. brought us? Where will it lead us? The story of A.I. is the story of intelligence--of life processes as they evolve from bacteria (1.0) to humans (2.0), where life processes define their own software, to technology (3.0), where life processes design both their hardware and software. We know that A.I. is transforming work, laws, and weapons, as well as the dark side of computing (hacking and viral sabotage), raising questions that we all need to address: What jobs should be automated? How should our legal systems handle autonomous systems? How likely is the emergence of suprahuman intelligence? Is it possible to control suprahuman intelligence? How do we ensure that the uses of A.I. remain beneficial? These are the issues at the heart of this book and its unique perspective, which seeks a ground apart from techno-skepticism and digital utopia"--Provided by publisher.

Not as good as "mathematical universe" but still an interesting read. Life 3.0 is supermachines that not only can improve their software but also improve their hardware. Life 3.0 does sound to me like Elon Musk's " unleashing the demon" but Tegmark feels that it is inevitable, and also probably a good thing for the earth and the universe that humans are replaced by something better. He certainly thinks outside the box. I wasn't impressed with the last chapter which was basically just an advertisement for Tegmark's Future of Life Institute.
