Discussion of Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, and Strategies
June 14 @ 7:15 pm - 8:30 pm CDTFree
For our June monthly online book discussion, Austin Forum Executive Director, Jay Boisseau, will lead us in a conversation about the book “Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, and Strategies.” With any new technology comes fears alongside the initial excitement. But more so than ever before, society has to ask ourselves if these fears are warranted when it comes to superintelligence. Author Nick Bostrom explores what exactly superintelligence is and the means by which we can (or should?) accomplish this technological feat. We will dive into the benefits superintelligence will bring to society and at what cost, how we as a society can ensure our own success in this new era, and what responsibilities we have to mitigate these dangers as we build a new form of intelligence that will change life as we know it.
