Part 01 –

Will progress in Artificial Intelligence provide humanity with a boost of unprecedented strength to realize a better future, or could it present a threat to the very basis of human civilization? The future of artificial intelligence is up for debate, and the Origins Project is bringing together a distinguished panel of experts, intellectuals and public figures to discuss who’s in control. Eric Horvitz, Jaan Tallinn, Kathleen Fisher and Subbarao Kambhampati join Lawrence Krauss.

It is sad to see that these guys do NOT see the dangerous aspects of AI. Also, that AI will NOT make people be more happy. So in a way, AI has no use, and may even be dangerous. Like nuclear energy. But only much more dangerous than nuclear energy. Please stop designing / developing AI!!!

Why does this have 29k views, when YouTube is pushing Choosing Beggars down the throats of millions of idiots, rather than pushing these wonderful beacons of higher thinking and learning?

aman prasad says:

I love Mr. Subbarao's optimistic nature 👌
Its better to be optimistic and fail than to be pessimistic and proven right.

aman prasad says:

Its sooo heartbreaking to see such enlightening conferences hve sch a low audience count on sch a major platform…… No wonder why human beings are not evolving as a society.

aman prasad says:

Well that's a greattttttttttt saying in part 1 video that " we shuld me more worried about the natural stupidity than to artificial intelligence" 😂😂

La Lo says:

Subbarao seems best at the questions…more appropriate and logical and codifying the complexities…

17: 1. THE INDIAN FELLOW IS TAKING ABOUT SLAVERY IN AMERICA EVEN THOUGH THEY STILL ARE ACTIVELY PRACTICING SLAVERY HE said that AI CAN LEARN FROM THE NEWS! The media has proven to be incredibly biased and dishonest! DAMN right slanderous! Fuck all you snow flakes!!

Mike Upton says:

For the record, I retired from trucking last year. Computer operated trucks? PLEASE! The sooner the better. There are remote operated locomotives.
Our longistics, here in the states is one in a long list of national embarrassments.

High Voltage says:

Why to kill people, if they are could be modified instead.

Evangelista says:

Very interesting

Charles Lafferty says:

Please tell me about your freudian slips, avoiding tricks, keeping it ethical and other miss behavior? What kind of things have you guys witnessed? Mabe there should be an agency that all odd behaviors are reported tracked evaluated and shared. Rules and safe gaurds need to developed to protect mankind . Just as in biotechnology, this technology has great potential and greater danger. Thank you CL. Ps- don't forget about the ATOM?

Marc Sunborn says:

Can someone tell me now WHO controls the singularity based global A.I.?
I must have missed the crystal clear answer when my attention was diverted by my personal A.I. telling me the most probable agenda behind it …
