IBNA- A new Persian translation of ‘The Age of AI: And Our Human Future’ (2021) by Henry Kissinger, Daniel Huttenlocher and Eric Schmidt has been published and is available to those interested in artificial intelligence issues.
The new Persian translation has been carried out by Pouria Hamouni. Tehran-based Soroush Publishing has released ‘The Age of AI’ in 262 pages and 100 copies. The former Persian rendition of this work was accomplished by Hamid-Reza Bijani and was published by Qoqnoos Publishing.
Three of the world’s most accomplished and deep thinkers come together to explore Artificial Intelligence (AI) and the way it is transforming human society—and what this technology means for us all.
An A.I. that learned to play chess discovered moves that no human champion would have conceived of. Driverless cars edge forward at red lights, just like impatient humans, and so far, nobody can explain why it happens. Artificial intelligence is being put to use in sports, medicine, education, and even (frighteningly) how we wage war.
The authors show how A.I. could affect our relationship with knowledge, impact our worldviews, and change society and politics as profoundly as the ideas of the Enlightenment.
