Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence

A talk by Max Tegmark

Max Tegmark, Massachusetts Institute of Technology

9/26/2017

3:30pm - 4:30pm

Location: 430-8 Wozniak Lounge, Soda Hall

The rise of artificial intelligence has the potential to transform our future more than any other technology, raising myriad questions this generation need to address: How can we grow our prosperity through automation without leaving people lacking income or purpose? What career advice should we give today’s kids? How can we make future AI systems more robust, so that they do what we want without crashing, malfunctioning or getting hacked? Should we fear an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons? Will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, replacing humans on the job market and perhaps altogether? Will AI help life flourish like never before or give us more power than we can handle?

Max Tegmark (professor at MIT, founder of the Future of Life Institute) will be coming to Berkeley to discuss these topics, and others, relating to the future of AI.
