From twenty-five of the most important scientific minds, an unparalleled round table examination of artificial intelligence, thought, and what it means to be human.

More than sixty years ago, mathematician-philosopher Norbert Wiener published a book on the place of machines in society that ended with a warning: "We shall never receive the right answers to our questions unless we ask the right questions. . . . The hour is very late, and the choice of good and evil knocks at our door."

In the wake of advances in unsupervised, self-improving machine learning, a small but influential community of thinkers is considering Wiener's words again. In this book, science world luminary John Brockman gathers their disparate visions of where AI might be taking us. Serious, searching and authoritative, Possible Minds lays out the intellectual landscape of one of the most important topics of our time.
