Five Books On International AI Policy

A short list of books about international AI Policy

I decided it would be interesting to make a short list of books about international AI Polciy, knowing in the process that I will likely miss a great deal of relevant books. However, I thought it would be interesting to try. As such here is a very short list, not in any kind of particular order of relevance. It is simply a list of books on the top of my mind.

1. AI Superpowers

2. EPIC AI Policy Sourcebook

  • OECD Principles on AI (2019)
  • European Commission High Level Expert Group on AI, Ethics Guidelines for Trustworthy AI (2019)
  • White House, Executive Order 13859, Maintaining American Leadership in AI (2019)
  • Canada-France Statement on Artificial Intelligence (2018)
  • Public Voice, Universal Guidelines for AI (2018)
  • Isaac Asimov, Three Laws of Robotics (1942)
  • The Beijing Artificial Intelligence Principles (2019)
  • Defense Innovation Board AI Principles (2019)
  • Policy surveys
  • National AI strategies

There is also a long list AI policy resources.

3. Superintelligence

Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies is a 2014 book by the Swedish philosopher Nick Bostrom from the University of Oxford. It argues that if machine brains surpass human brains in general intelligence, then this new superintelligence could replace humans as the dominant lifeform on Earth.

4. Life 3.0

5. Weapons of Math Destruction

I hope you enjoyed this short list. It is by no means extensive, however it is a series of book that can give a mild introduction to the subject. I have started reading some of these, and I hope to complete all of them. Read most of the policies in the EPIC Sourcebook and going through the book by Kai-Fu-Lee.

Truly hope you have any other books to recommend, I would be very happy to hear your opinion.

This is #500daysofAI and you are reading article 362. I am writing one new article about or related to artificial intelligence every day for 500 days. My focus for day 300–400 is about AI, hardware and the climate crisis.
