Description

There’s been much talk about AI disrupting the job market and enabling new weapons, but very few scientists talk seriously about the elephant in the room: what will happen once machines outsmart us at all tasks? That’s the topic of this exciting public lecture and why Prof Tegmark wrote his book “Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence”. This talk (and his book) is an effort to help you join the most important conversation of our time. We look forward to seeing you and to hearing your thoughts in the Q&A session following the lecture.

About the speaker

Max Erik Tegmark is a professor at the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and co-founder of the Future of Life Institute. He is currently investigating the existential risk from advanced artificial intelligence.
