— Join Futurist David Wood — for a talk on Elon Musk + Mark Zuckerberg — Assessing the risks from super-intelligent A.I…

Tech titans Elon Musk and Mark Zuckerberg take opposing views over the dangers posed by the development of better AI (Artificial Intelligence). This talk by smartphone industry pioneer and longtime singularity-watcher David Wood provides an accessible background to this monumental debate.

He will highlight:

> The meaning of terms «singularity» and «intelligence explosion»

> Five factors that are accelerating progress in AI
Scenarios in which superintelligence might arise within as little as ten years time.

> Common fallacies and misunderstanding in discussions over superintelligence.

> Five ways in which superintelligence could knock humanity off trajectory.

> Positive steps that are now being taken to ensure a beneficial outcome for A.I

Venue: TBA
Doors: 7pm / Talk starts: 7.30pm

Note: To be clear, please don't expect either Mark or Elon to attend! The debate between Mark Zuckerberg and Elon Musk is something that has been happening in remarks each have made online recently. What will happen in this Funzing event is that the speaker, David Wood, will be reviewing what various people (including Zuckerberg and Musk, but also many others) have been saying about the development of AI, putting these remarks in context, and helping the audience to reach their own conclusions about the pros and cons of what has been said. It's an important topic.
