The Future of Artificial Intelligence

From financial markets to social media to e-commerce, Artificial Intelligence is increasingly integrated into our lives. Amy Webb joins the podcast to discuss the Intelligent systems that don't share our motivations, desires, or hopes for the future of humanity are now being built by nine powerful companies: Google, Microsoft, Amazon, Facebook, IBM, and Apple in the U.S. and Baidu, Alibaba, and Tencent in China. While their aims are often altruistic, they’re under pressure for short-term gains instead of long-term contributions, and they are building thinking machines that should, but don’t reflect humanity’s values. Clarke and Webb talk about the concurrent development of AI in countries like China, where government planning and regulation of these technologies is outpacing Western countries. What’s in store for companies, governments, and ordinary citizens, as AI moves from narrow applications, through Artificial General Intelligence. And in the near future, Artificial Super Intelligence - a markedly different level of capability that can “out-think” humans on every level. Learn this and much more on the Future of Artificial Intelligence, on Future State.
