“AI-AGI Revolution:  Will This Change What It Means To Be HUMAN?”

The world has already changed – The genie (AI) is out of the bottle, but this is a genie of our own making, and one that we designed to think, learn, grow, and develop on its own, without the need for human involvement.

Elon Musk, Steve Wozniak and over 1,000 other influential people in the field have already signed an open letter requesting a pause on the development of AI, citing security concerns and stating, “AI systems with human-competitive intelligence can pose profound risks to society and humanity”.

Italy has gone so far as to ban, at least temporarily, the AI application, ChatGPT, following a security breach where “it was possible for some users to see another active user’s first and last name, email address, payment address, the last four digits (only) of a credit card number, and credit card expiration date,” according to an OpenAI spokesman.

“More than anything, this book is an exploration of the subject to promote discussion and debate,” added author, Ms Bella St John. AI is not good, nor bad – but where we go from here is something that needs informed consideration. My hope is that this book provides food for thought – no more, no less.”

Explore topics ranging from:

  • AI outpacing Moore’s Law
  • The comparisons between child developmental psychology and ChatGPT
  • AI’s propensity to convincingly make stuff up
  • The origins of AI
  • The blurring line between human and AI, including Robot ‘Legal Personhood’, and cross-dimensional marriage
  • Should robots have ‘human rights’?
  • Is AI sentient?
  • Deep Fake
  • Implications for Education and Training
  • The Age of the Cyborg
  • Are Artists and Writers now an endangered species?
  • Why “Critical Oversight” is essential
  • Will AI-AGI Change What It Means to Be Human?

…and so much more – including my thoughts on ‘co-authoring’ a book with artificial intelligence.

“Quantum Lace” Series

“There are books out there about time travel that we’ve all read and enjoyed. But this one is so entirely plausible, so highly engaging, that one can’t help but wonder if the concept of time travel is not only possible, but is perhaps undeniably real.

Taking science fiction to a whole new level, Quantum Lace is a book that will have readers packing their bags in preparation for their own expedition to an alternate place in time.

With a strong female protagonist and a cast of other well-developed characters, this book is sure to hit a home run with hard-to-please audiences and will leave them itching to get started on the next installment in the series.”

Hashtag 101 - Hashtag Basics for Non-Geeks: With a Special Section on Hashtags for Writers by [St John, Leigh]Hashtag 101

(achieved Amazon #1 Best-Seller ranking in 2 categories)

“I have been involved with social media for many years and can honestly say that I never used a hashtag until just a few months ago. I’m stubborn like that. I sort of understood what they were, but not really and wasn’t inclined to really take the time to get the full skinny on them. Leigh St John has put together an awesome guide on hashtags that should help nearly anyone cross this confusing barrier. She explains what these things are, how they are used, where they are used, how to select the best ones for your message and even some cautions. Even though she claims it isn’t, I think that this is the most thorough look at hashtags I have seen yet. #WellDone.”  Amazon Review

365 Days of Inspiration: Be Inspired Every Day Of Your Life by [St John, Leigh]365 Days of Inspiration

This book is the result of a number of people asking me to compile a daily journal full of inspirational quotes and scripture messages ~ a daily journal in which they could write their thoughts, feelings, hopes, desires…

It is a carefully selected collection of words, ideas and inspiring stories ~ a guided journal ~ that I hope will inspire you to be a better you, to do things you never dreamed you could do, and to live an inspired life full of gratitude, faith and abundance.

The extraordinary teacher, mentor and business philosopher, Jim Rohn had a wonderful quote about journals…

“I am a buyer of blank books. Kids find it interesting that I would buy a blank book. They say, “Twenty-six dollars for a blank book! Why would you pay that?” The reason I pay 26 dollars is to challenge myself to find something worth 26 dollars to put in there. All my journals are private, but if you ever got a hold of one of them, you wouldn’t have to look very far to discover it is worth more than 26 dollars.”

What Do I Want To Be?: A Guided Journal to Discover Your Passion by [St John, Leigh]What Do I Want To Be?

A guided journal to help teens and twenty-somethings discover your passion! Rather than telling you what you should be or could be, this book will show you how to explore your life’s purpose, gain new confidence, ask better questions and discover what you really want to be…

“This book is terrific at cutting thru the garbage and getting to the real deal. With all the education cuts, we need to step up and support our youth and that’s what the book does… The best part is that it doesn’t tell kids what they could/should do, instead it gives them the right questions to come up with their own right answers. What a gift!”  Amazon Review
