Natural Language Cognitive Architecture
EPUB Free on GitHub: https://github.com/daveshap/NaturalLanguageCognitiveArchitecture
About: This is my first book about cognitive architecture. It was published when GPT-3 was just a few months old, so it has largely become irrelevant today, however people still tell me they get a lot out of reading it, to understand the underpinning ideas of cognitive architecture.
Benevolent By Design
EPUB Free on GitHub: https://github.com/daveshap/BenevolentByDesign
About: This is my seminal work on alignment and the control problem. In this book I advocate not for control of advanced AGI, but of creating a system that is intrinsically stable, trustworthy, and benevolent such that it needs no control.
Symphony of Thought
EPUB Free on GitHub: https://github.com/daveshap/SymphonyOfThought
About: This is the next generation of Natural Language Cognitive Architecture, where I introduce more concepts about artificial cognition and autonomous agents driven by LLMs. This includes planning, task automation, and cognitive control.
