LIFEBOAT FOUNDATION BOOKS


 
The Lifeboat Foundaton has just launched three books! They are:

  • The Human Race to the Future: What Could Happen — and What to Do, Third Edition by Daniel Berleant. Read the paperback and Kindle versions.
     
    “Imaginative yet substantive, readable yet science oriented, and occasionally humorous, this book proposes future scenarios spanning from the current century to nearly eternity. Most chapters offer a concluding section with recommendations.”
     
  • Visions of the Future edited by J. Daniel Batt. Read the paperback and Kindle versions.
     
    “In Visions of the Future you’ll find stories and essays about artificial intelligence, androids, faster-than-light travel, and the extension of human life. You’ll read about the future of human institutions and culture. But these literary works are more than just a reprisal of the classical elements of science fiction and futurism. At their core, each of these pieces has one consistent, repeated theme: us.”
     
  • Prospects for Human Survival by Willard H. Wells. Read the paperback and Kindle versions.
     
    “Advanced technologies such as computers, genetics, nanotech, robotics, and artificial intelligence (AI) are progressing at an accelerating pace. Wells shows that the pace is too rapid for us to safely adapt. He makes a strong case for developing friendly superhuman AI as quickly as possible, hopefully a nurturing artificial overlord that will protect us from ourselves. The danger is that it will not be as friendly as we hope, but the alternative is unacceptable risk.”
