— Stephen Hawking, to the BBC
“I don’t want to really scare you, but it was alarming how many people I talked to who are highly placed people in AI who have retreats that are sort of ‘bug out’ houses, to which they could flee if it all hits the fan.”
— James Barrat, author of Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era
Artificial intelligence is a forgone conclusion at this point, it is going to happen. This panel will discuss the current state of AI and the current expected timeline for the coming of our Evil robotic overlords. In addition to details on this emerging threat, panel villains will discuss their ideas on how to survive, and or profit from, this impending world changing innovation.
How do we use AI to our advantage?
How might Machine Intelligences use US to THEIR advantage?
Existing algorithms aren’t sentient, and yet they already control so much of what we look at, what we do, what we see, how we feel – on Facebook, on Amazon, and all over the Internet. Is this a good thing?
