Hyperion is a banger...was the first book to make me feel like this has all been done before, and that our creative ideas are from a future already stored to memory that we unconsciously access... And also, which iteration am I?
Have to add Robopocalypse
I think I only read life 3.0 and super inteligent...
Blindsight by Watts - the ship’s AI only communicates with the captain, a scientifically “plausible” superintelligent, uhm, vampire. One of the best novels with a long list of scientific paper references, too
It’s not a book but I think Metropolis from Fritz Lang should be up there. The similarities in the screenplay with what’s going on right now with AI are huge( ➡️Thread about it coming soon 💪😎)
As I spend most days explaining consciousness and love to LLMs - I remember this one about a programmer from the 80s that finds himself on a different world where he can make magic with code told as story. Fun book from high school 😂
The Metamorphosis of Prime Intellect by Roger Williams
