AI: Our Final Invention or Fondest Friend? A Roundtable Discussion


AI has seen explosive growth over the last few years, how will it impact our future? Sci-fi has long predicted bad outcomes, but science fiction is just fiction… right?

Join Max Howell and Mark Bruemmer for this roundtable discussion about the pressing questions: What precisely is AI and what are its applications? Should we run toward or away from AI? Do we have a choice? What are the real outcomes likely to be and how soon will we see them? Who is likely to make the largest breakthroughs in the near future? How long until computers are smarter than humans? Is it even possible for computers to be that smart?

“The real risk with AI isn’t malice but competence. A superintelligent AI will be extremely good at accomplishing its goals, and if those goals aren’t aligned with ours, we’re in trouble. You’re probably not an evil ant-hater who steps on ants out of malice, but if you’re in charge of a hydroelectric green energy project and there’s an anthill in the region to be flooded, too bad for the ants. Let’s not place humanity in the position of those ants.” – Stephen Hawking
