This comment is a placeholder for Nick Bostrom's forthcoming book from Oxford University Press, Superintelligence.

I wrote this comment so I can link to it when referring to "Bostrom, forthcoming."

Update: The OUP page is here.

Timelines on superintelligence related matters are of course hard to predict, but any idea when we'll be able to buy this book?

UPDATE 2014-01-07: OUP now say July 2014 (estimated)

75% confidence interval: 10-01-2013 through 04-01-2014.

That's as precise as I could possibly hope for - thanks!

My 75% confidence interval is now wider, extending from Mar. 2014 through Jun. 2015. :(

Out of curiosity, is the delay due to extensive revisions to the draft, or due to the publisher being slow?

Most of it is publisher delay.

That's a shame.

At Anna Salamon's prompting, I took part in a workshop after Winter Intelligence 2011 to discuss this book; do you think it would be rude if I asked Nick Bostrom for a draft?

(I was confused by the beginning of the interval for a while until I remembered that you Americans write the month first.)

In the One True Date Format, that's 2013-10-01 to 2014-04-01.
