Artificial Intelligence, for all of it’s promises also holds many dangers. Never before had we had a technology that could either help us create utopia or lead us into dystopia. We’ll go over where we are right now in the development process, then talk about what potential disaster scenarios look like. We’ll ponder the values that we would want to give it and if it’s even possible to do this. We’ll then discuss strategies we could implement to help create Artificial Intelligence in a safe and beneficial way for humanity. The audience will leave the talk more aware of the possibilities but also more equipped to defend against disaster scenarios.
