    I did a double-take when I saw Kissinger as one of the
    contributors.

    The Age of AI: And Our Human Future | Paperback

    Henry A Kissinger | Eric Schmidt | Daniel Huttenlocher

    Little, Brown and Company | Back Bay Books

    Political Science / Public Policy - Science & Technology Policy / Social Science / Technology Studies / Computers / Artificial Intelligence

    Published Nov 1, 2022

    "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 AI learned to win chess by making moves human grand masters
    had never conceived. Another AI discovered a new antibiotic by
    analyzing molecular properties human scientists did not
    understand. Now, AI-powered jets are defeating experienced
    human pilots in simulated dogfights. AI is coming online in
    searching, streaming, medicine, education, and many other
    fields and, in so doing, transforming how humans are
    experiencing reality.

    Allegedly, the best book for AI comes from Norbert Wiener, and it's
    related to cybernetics. The true ones.

    Also, I would add SICP as a Scheme/CS course, Calculus from Spivak and
    the book Goedel/Escher/Bach. If you read these you'll understand better
    how information rises from "inert" matter.
