There are two sides to the Artificial Intelligence of our imaginations. While we dream of the ways AI will free and enrich us, from a different perspective we see Damocles’ sword hanging tenuously over us. The excitement of the Possibility is counterbalanced by the existential Dread of Humanity’s Inevitable Irrelevance.
Technology hype cycles are part of the Game, but this feels different. The frenetic pace of technological change and the subsequent anxiety we feel is showing up more frequently in the stories we tell ourselves.
In the interim, you sense a Gold Rush in the making and everyone wants a cut.
These are strange reactions to a technology whose definition evades concretization.
What is it about Artificial Intelligence that inspires and terrifies us in equal parts? The 21st Century will be defined by a handful of technologies and this is one of them. So, what is it? How does it work? What is real and what is nonsense? How do we maximize the potential benefits? Can we avoid the dehumanizing aspects? Or is the whole thing just smoke and mirrors?
Brian will explore AI’s past, discuss its present and contemplate its future.
