Living in the Age of Artificial Intelligence - Max Tegmark
On 15 November 2018 at Stockholm University, Tegmark lectured on Living in the Age of AI. Sponsored by Boston Consulting Group Gamma, this program was attended by 900 students, faculty and members of the general public.
Success in creating effective AI," said the late Stephen Hawking, "could be the biggest event in the history of our civilization. Or the worst. We just don't know."
Elon Musk called AI "a fundamental risk to the existence of civilization." What was once science fiction is fast becoming reality, as AI transforms war, crime, justice, jobs, society and - even our very sense of what it means to be human."
The Boston Consulting Group and Brahe Foundation have come together to arrange an exclusive talk by Max Tegmark, MIT professor and co-founder of the Future of Life Institute. The talk focused on AI and its potential to revolutionize our collective future. This is truly profound.
In his deeply researched and vitally important new book, Life 3.0, Tegmark explores the essential questions of our time and guides us through the most controversial issues around AI today - from consciousness to super-intelligence and the ultimate physical limits on life in the cosmos.
This lecture was attended by 900 students, faculty and members of the general public.
