We are entering a period of profound social and technological transition in which developments in Artificial Intelligence (AI) will completely transform civilization as we know it. Unfortunately, the same technology that might solve the planet's most dire problems has also spawned autonomous killing machines and nanorobots capable of spreading lethal viruses indiscriminately. If superintelligent machines become a reality, will they inherit our competitive drives to succeed, exploit, and dominate? Who will be the real masters of future civilizations: humans or machines?

AI milestones are virtually toppling like dominoes, literally day by day. One event is certain: Ultimately, the quality of life and possibly the entire fate of everyone who lives on Earth will be forever impacted by artificial intelligence from birth to death--and possibly beyond.

It is already too late to ask: Should we, can we, will we? The Age of Machines, equal to humans but vastly more intelligent, is coming. Whether you're ready or not.
