AI, Superhumans, and the Next Economic Revolution

Excitement and momentum in artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning has been accelerating with a global AI race in progress. After spending a decade on the front lines of the AI revolution, Alex Bates discovered the one key ingredient that was missing from mainstream AI research – humans! 

This book explains how augmenting humans, combining human intuition and artificial intelligence, will herald an unprecedented era of productivity and financial success. The coming wave of human centered AI will help us solve the biggest problems facing humanity while also protecting us from rogue or weaponized AI systems.  

This book includes a framework for creating hybrid solutions combining AI, machine learning, and human intuition that can predict the future, improve our social lives, eliminate scarcity, and provide a clear roadmap to abundance and prosperity in the financial, health, and relationship industries that represent trillions in economic opportunity over the next decade. We don’t want to make super intelligent AI, we want to make super intelligent humans.

“Alex Bates offers a tantalizing perspective on the future of intelligence amplification and augmentation. As the dawn of artificial superintelligence nears, I expect that executing his vision of human-machine fusion will become essential to our survival.”
