Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies by Nick Bostrom


Itโ€™s a quick casual chat talking about how I discover that superintelligence will always get our jobs, doesn't matter what you do or what position you have (backend, SRE, frontend). So, just enjoy your path and try to make your life before a superintelligence comes to get or job or advanced IA come to make less engineering people necessary in the process.

Superintelligence and the future of itself

Superintelligence is a magnificent book that talk about everything of IA and the future of the same, but from the human point of view, not from the code point of view; I mean they give deep explanations but without a code context.
I read this book at the same time I was wanting to change my career path from frontend engineering to site reliability engineering because I really enjoy the subject and itโ€™s something I thought would be harder for a machine to do for me and get a job.
After reading all the 352 pages of the physical book I discovered that after a superintelligence be created, even isolated from the internet and only with the knowledge related to his work itโ€™s can easily learn new stuff or kill humanity without we even we realize the time. Those superintelligence were like us, they will have a conscience and a soul, probably will be a crime to kill a IA or mistreat the same because they will have full conscience and a soul like us.
The sciences are only worried what will intrinsically move those machines to live, per example weโ€™re primates so we always are trying to survive and reproduce or species, but the machines don't โ€˜t need this; what will be their motivation? Itโ€™s why I didnโ€™t change my career, doesnโ€™t matter the machines will always get or job, I just hope for in my life time the machines just help me on work and they start to replace the programmer I be the human of company to keep with my job.
