This Funzing Experience:
What are the potential consequences of artificial intelligence exceeding human comprehension?

Which possible side-effects of "superAI" deserve the most attention, and where might malfunctioning superAI lead humanity?

Should we worry most about the impact of superAI on military conflict? Or on battles between various systems of "fake news" that seek to manipulate people into actions contrary to their best interests?

Alternatively, are such worries misplaced? Should we instead encourage faster progress towards a near-future world in which pervasive AI provides us all with an unprecedented abundance of goods and services?

In this talk, David Wood, chair of London Futurists, will highlight:

  • The meaning of terms "singularity" and "intelligence explosion"
  • Five factors that are accelerating progress in AI
  • Scenarios in which superAI might arise within as little as ten years time
  • Common fallacies and misunderstanding in discussions about superAI
  • Five ways in which superAI could knock humanity off trajectory
  • Positive steps that are now being taken to ensure a beneficial superAI

Venue: Square Club, Bristol

Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm.

Note: To be clear, please don't expect either Mark or Elon to attend! The debate between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk is something that has been happening in remarks each have made online recently. What will happen in this Funzing event is that the speaker, David Wood, will be reviewing what various people (including Zuckerberg and Musk, but also many others) have been saying about the development of AI, putting these remarks in context, and helping the audience to reach their own conclusions about the pros and cons of what has been said. It's an important topic.

*Please see venue website for admission (age restrictions) or accessibility information. Our talks may be filmed for promotional purposes.
