Artificial Intelligence and the Environmental Crisis

Publisher: CRC Press Release date: 2019-12-19

Description

A radical and challenging book which argues that artificial intelligence needs a completely different set of foundations, based on ecological intelligence rather than human intelligence, if it is to deliver on the promise of a better world. This can usher in the greatest transformation in human history, an age of re-integration. Our very existence is dependent upon our context within the Earth System, and so, surely, artificial intelligence must also be grounded within this context, embracing emergence, interconnectedness and real-time feedback. We discover many positive outcomes across the societal, economic and environmental arenas and discuss how this transformation can be delivered. Key Features:Identifies a key weakness in current AI thinking, that threatens any hope of a better world.Highlights the importance of realizing that systems theory is an essential foundation for any technology that hopes to positively transform our world.Emphasizes the need for a radical new approach to AI, based on ecological systems.Explains why ecosystem intelligence, not human intelligence, offers the best framework for AI.Examines how this new approach will impact on the three arenas of society, environment and economics, ushering in a new age of re-integration.
