Is There Danger Ahead With AI: Superintelligence, Ethics, Work, Leisure and Automation

This event has finished Took place on: Tuesday, 14th May 2019

Professor Wilks will discuss the argument that ‘superintelligent’ AI may turn against us, as Hawking and Bostrom have warned. It will be argued that these worries misrepresent the achievements and potential of AI, and that the ethical dilemmas of AI will be deeper and more challenging than just managing idleness due to automation, or how to blame an automated car in a crash. They will include how to treat the artificial Companions created to curate our own lifetimes of information.

Doors will open 30 minutes before the start of the lecture
