Anders Sandberg om artificiell intelligens och mänsklighetens framtid

En av huvudtalarna på det KVA-möte i Stockholm den 17 mars som bär rubriken Emerging technologies and the future of humanity (missa inte sista anmälningsdag 10 mars!) och som jag gjorde reklam för i en tidigare bloggpost är Anders Sandberg från Future of Humanity Institute i Oxford. Anders har alltid spännande saker att säga, och för den som inte kan bärga sig till den 17:e finns följande videoinspelning av det föredrag Artificial intelligence: examining the interface between brain and machine som han höll i Oxford för en knapp månad sedan.

I kallelsen till samma föredrag kan vi ta del av en kort-kort sammanfattning:

Artificial intelligence may seem the preserve of science fiction books and films, but how close are we to genuine artificial intelligence, and will it look as we expect it to? From mind uploading to self-replicating machines, Dr Anders Sandberg will explore what artificial intelligence will mean for humanity, and how we can navigate the inevitable risks it will bring.

Emerging technologies and the future of humanity

kva

A number of emergening and future technologies have the potential to transform – for better or for worse – society and the conditions for humanity. In order to avoid a situation where in effect we run blindfolded at full speed into unknown and dangerous territories, we need to understand what the possible and probable future scenarios are. The purpose of the meeting is to shed light on these issues and discuss how a more systematic treatment might be possible.

A number of emergening and future technologies have the potential to transform – for better or for worse – society and the conditions for humanity. These include, e.g., geoengineering, artificial intelligence, nanotechnology, and ways to enhance human capabilities by genetic, farmaceutical or electronic means. In order to avoid a situation where in effect we run blindfolded at full speed into unknown and dangerous territories, we need to understand what the possible and probable future scenarios are, with respect to these technological developments and their potential positive and negative impacts on humanity. The purpose of the meeting is to shed light on these issues and discuss how a more systematic treatment might be possible.

Detailed programme and abstracts can be downloaded from the menu to the right.

The symposium is supported financially by Riksbankens Jubileumsfond and Vetenskapsrådet.
