"Enlightenment Now: The Case for Reason, Science, Humanism, and Progress"
Is the world really falling apart? Is the ideal of progress obsolete? Cognitive scientist and public intellectual Steven Pinker urges us to step back from the gory headlines and prophecies of doom, and instead, follow the data: In seventy-five jaw-dropping graphs, Pinker shows that life, health, prosperity, safety, peace, knowledge, and happiness are on the rise.

Editorial Reviews

Review

Elon Musk -
2014- "With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon. In all those stories where there's the guy with the pentagram and the holy water, it's like yeah he's sure he can control the demon. Didn't work out."  

2017- "Robots will do everything better than us."

2017- "AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization in a way that car accidents, airplane crashes, faulty drugs or bad food were not -- they were harmful to a set of individuals within society, of course, but they were not harmful to society as a whole."

Stephen Hawking
2014- "The development of artificial intelligence could spell the end of the human race."

Michael Vassar
2017- "If greater-than-human artificial general intelligence is invented without due caution, it is all but certain that the human species will be extinct in very short order."

Vladimir Putin
2017 - “Whoever reaches a breakthrough in developing artificial intelligence will come to dominate the world. Artificial intelligence is the future, not only for Russia, but for all humankind.”

Scary stuff, huh?

From the Author

I have a muse that sits on my shoulder and beats me over the head with a cricket bat if I don't take notice of its urgings.

About two - three years ago I encountered some comments by people like Elon Musk and Stephen Hawking about artificial intelligences (AI) and superintelligences(SI). Others have joined in, some not so alarming. Their comments - warnings, really - also caught the attention of my muse and the possibilities have been rattling around in my otherwise empty skull. (For quotes from Musk et al, see above.)

Well, you should be able to understand why my muse became excited.
 
Add social, economic, and political issues to the technological aspects and the result provides a basis for a suspenseful and challenging thriller series.
 
Now I don't know whether to describe the Annihilation Series as a technothriller or a political thriller or simply as an exciting thriller series. I'll let you make up your mind about the sub-genre possibilities.

Note that the books in this series are not intended to be standalone thrillers. They are intended to be episodes of a serial, with each book following on from the prior books.
