Governing Transformative Artificial Intelligence

  • Lindholmen Conference Hall 5 Lindholmspiren Västra Götalands län, 417 56 Sweden (map)

Abstract

Artificial intelligence is looking to be radically transformative. Expert developers and scientists working on artificial intelligence believe that there is a 50% chance that we will have Human-Level Machine Intelligence by 2062, that all occupations are fully automatable. A transformation of this size comes with a tremendous set of potential benefits, but also risks. The talk will focus on what we can do today to ensure that transition comes to benefit humanity. How do we ensure that the transition to a world of advanced and transformative artificial intelligence goes well?
