The Precipice

January 26, 2023

Artificial intelligence is a hot topic among freelancers right now. But relatively little is being said about the risk it poses. This is what Toby Ord describes in his book The Precipice, about existential risks and the future of humanity.

Ord describes general artificial intelligence as one of the greatest risks facing humanity in the coming century. As a proponent of effective altruism, he ends the book by trying to motivate readers to get involved in their professions to prevent this and other major threats.

If you work in IT or are interested in the future of AI, this is a book not to be missed.
