We are living in times of accelerating progress. Machine intelligence is increasingly integrated in vital parts of human life. Narrow Artificial Intelligence is driving cars, flying drones, playing chess, winning Go and answering emails. More and more machines are doing physical and cognitive work; create music and art. Machines are replacing human work and human thinking. No job is safe and machines soon will be everywhere. AI is eating the world. Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) is expected in the next 5 years and we will observe the first thinking machines. Superintelligence is coming after, until we reach the singularity. Humans have to decide how to live with machines and define their own role in a humanmachine world.

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. Artificial intelligence (AI) is a huge dream and vision for all mankind, and makes up a major part of most popular science fiction. John McCarthy coined the term in 1955 as "the science and engineering of making intelligent machines". Today, many notable companies have their stakes set on this technology, making AI a part of our everyday lives, e.g. Speech Recognition, Machine learning, Recommendation Systems and Personal Assistants. The ongoing global digital revolution, the unfailingly valid Moore’s Law, the Internet of Things and overall prevalent subject of Big Data, gives us the impression that creating “real” artificial intelligence is closer than ever before in history. AI has become “sexy” again. Besides large amounts of money flowing into the field of AI, numerous publications focus on the topic, AI shows up in our daily newsfeeds, and is already an integral part of most of our gadgets.

However, what would be the implications if a company could create “strong and real” AI? How would this influence our society and our jobs? Will it get smarter day by day? Would we be able to control a technical system of this nature?

Stefan Wess is a Researcher and Entrepreneur. He holds his PhD in Computer Science and is a highly recognized technology industry veteran with multinational front-line technology and scientific leadership experience. Stefan has written and published numerous books and articles on Artificial Intelligence. His professional career includes several Executive positions in international companies. As CEO of Empolis Information Management a Germany based IT company, he is still fascinated and excited how technology transforms our lives, the society and finally mankind.

Machine intelligence is here, and we're already using it to make subjective decisions. But the complex way AI grows and improves makes it hard to understand and even harder to control. In this cautionary talk, techno-sociologist Zeynep Tufekci explains how intelligent machines can fail in ways that don't fit human error patterns -- and in ways we won't expect or be prepared for. "We cannot outsource our responsibilities to machines," she says. "We must hold on ever tighter to human values and human ethics."

How smart can our machines make us? Tom Gruber, co-creator of Siri, wants to make "humanistic AI" that augments and collaborates with us instead of competing with (or replacing) us. He shares his vision for a future where AI helps us achieve superhuman performance in perception, creativity and cognitive function -- from turbocharging our design skills to helping us remember everything we've ever read and the name of everyone we've ever met. "We are in the middle of a renaissance in AI," Gruber says. "Every time a machine gets smarter, we get smarter."

"The actual path of a raindrop as it goes down the valley is unpredictable, but the general direction is inevitable," says digital visionary Kevin Kelly -- and technology is much the same, driven by patterns that are surprising but inevitable. Over the next 20 years, he says, our penchant for making things smarter and smarter will have a profound impact on nearly everything we do. Kelly explores three trends in AI we need to understand in order to embrace it and steer its development. "The most popular AI product 20 years from now that everyone uses has not been invented yet," Kelly says. "That means that you're not late."
