Don’t miss the next IAI Live event “Consciousness in the Machine” on January 9th, a monthly special brought to you by the Institute of Art and Ideas in partnership with Closer to Truth.
The focus will lie on consciousness and AI. Billions of dollars are being invested into AI, and from protein folding to dominating in the game of Go, what AI can do is both exciting and a little frightening. Despite theorists warning of the existential risk AI could pose, the costs of losing the AI arms race is too great for anyone to slow down their research and development.
But while the machines advance, will a consciousness emerge within them? And if so, will the flavor of that consciousness be benevolent or harrowing?
