How might artificial superintelligence transform our future?
Adam Ford, data professional and futurologist, will assess the prospect of transformative artificial intelligence (AI) in the near and mid-term future, and discuss the ethical importance of building an AI that is smarter and more capable than humanity.
He will explore how AI may outpace human capability in most (or possibly all) areas of economic usefulness – i.e. automated science, engineering and technological development – resulting in explosive progress that is likely to be more significant than the agricultural and industrial revolutions of the past.
Adam will discuss the notion of intelligence, what is missing in AI now, and the importance of ‘understanding’ in biological intelligence. He will address a variety of expert opinions on progress in AI capability and timelines, and make recommendations for achieving good outcomes.
