Artificial Intelligence and the Future of Humanity

  1. 1. Our world will change more in the next 20 years than in the previous 300 years It could be heaven or it could be hell
  2. 2. The future is better than we think …*
  3. 3. …if we don’t confuse the tool with the purpose
  4. 4. …if we don’t confuse the tool with the purpose
  5. 5. 1 2 4 8 16 32 64128 DATA every-where/thing CLOUD everything SMART everything CONNECTED everything COMPUTE anything MAKE anything TRANSACT anything SEE everything
  6. 6. Data is the new oil, and Artificial Intelligence is the new electricity
  7. 7. AI: Computer systems that turn information and data into KNOWLEDGE (Demis Hassabis, CEO, DeepMind) MACHINES THAT CAN HEAR, SEE, SPEAK, LEARN… THINK?
  8. 8. “Machine learning is the science of giving computers the ability to learn and find insights without explicitly programming the machines on what to do”
  9. 9. “Deep learning (aka deep structured learning or hierarchical learning) is a part of machine learning methods. Most modern deep learning models are based on artificial neural networks”
  10. 10. Smart everything, everywhere: mostly IA (narrow AI) ‘Take X, add AI’ (Kevin Kelly)
  11. 11. Landscape of Human Competence (Moravec, Tegmark)
  12. 12. Technology is a great servant but a terrible master
  13. 13. "Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right (or the power) to do and what is the right thing to do” adapted from Potter Stewart
  14. 14. Security? Data Protection? Privacy? Digital Rights? Governance? Accountability? Regulation? IoT, IA/AI: We are building a new META-INTELLIGENCE Social Contract? Ethics? Values? Sustainability?
  15. 15. DIGITAL ETHICS: the difference between doing whatever technological progress will allow us to do, and putting human happiness and societal flourishing first at all times
  16. 16. We need to invest as much in humanity as we invest in technology
  17. 17. Humanity ☯ Technology HI ☯ AI
  18. 18. Algorithms Androrithms
  19. 19. Data and Information is not Knowledge* is not Understanding is not Wisdom is not Purpose
  20. 20. “We are least aware of what our minds do best. The most difficult things for machines to emulate are those that are unconscious” (Moravec, Minsky et al) Would we WANT machines to ‘emulate the unconscious’?
  21. 21. Humans ≠ Machines*
  22. 22. Smart Machines ≠ Human
  23. 23. Anything that can be digitized or automated, will be: the end of routine is near!
  24. 24. If you can describe your job, it will probably be automated!
  25. 25. Anything that cannot be digitized or automated will become much more valuable!
  26. 26. The EXTERNALITIES of exponential technological growth are becoming an equally big concern
  27. 27. Ethics is knowing the difference between what you have a right (or the power) to do and what is the right thing to do Not sustainable
  28. 28. Exponential technological progress will force us to expand our current economic logic
  29. 29. Post-capitalism?
  30. 30. IA/AI: Focus less on increased efficiency and more on doing entirely new things!
  31. 31. The Future: awesome humans (HI) on-top of amazing technology (AI)
