GTF Agora February 2018

Are you wondering about artificial intelligence? Are you concerned that the development of ‘full’ artificial intelligence could spell the end of humans? Or do you believe in a positive augmented intelligence explosion? Are you an AI-theist, a doubter or a believer? In any case, it is time to turn on the light, stop worrying about sci-fi scenarios, and start focusing on AI’s actual challenges. Let’s avoid costly mistakes in the design and use of our smart technologies. From a practical perspective: one-third of all jobs will be converted into software, robots, and smart machines by as early as 2025. Meanwhile, some 65 percent of children in grade school today are predicted to work in jobs that have yet to be invented. What are the main ethical, legal and political issues at an international level?

This will be discussed on the next GTF Agora Session on February 26, 2018 at 16.00 GMT and will be moderated by Fernando Salvetti, Founder & Managing Partner, Logosnet.
