Can robots really be conscious? Can we merge with artificial intelligence (AI) as tech leaders like Elon Musk and Ray Kurzweil suggest? Is your mind just a program? Join Susan Schneider, author of Artificial You, as she examines what AI can truly achieve.
Given the rapid pace of progress in AI, many predict that AI could advance to human-level intelligence within the next several decades, and from there, quickly outpace it.
Susan will urge that while it’s inevitable that AI will take intelligence in new directions, it’s up to us to carve out a sensible path forward. As AI technology turns inward, reshaping the brain, as well as outward, potentially creating machine minds, it’s crucial to beware. Homo sapiens, as mind designers, will be playing with ‘tools’ they do not understand how to use: the self, the mind, and consciousness.
Join Susan for a sober-minded discussion of these thorny issues.
