If and when you encounter an AI, it is best to look beyond superficialities, like a humanlike appearance. Perhaps only biological beings can have experience, or perhaps superintelligent AI doesn’t need to be conscious. Join Susan Schneider, an associate professor of philosophy and cognitive science at the University of Connecticut and a member of the Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics at Yale University, as she discusses her proposal for a test for determining whether AI can be conscious.

Machine learning and artificial intelligence are often heralded as one of the game changers of modern day industries. Yet for all the hype, some significant caveats are not taken into account. As an AI field practitioner, Juris shares several stories of how his team of engineers tackles different issues where humans have been hitherto unsurpassed, by attempting to introduce automation. Juris is a technology entrepreneur specializing in the application of artificial intelligence to practical machine vision. His passion has always been to find ways that technology can improve our lives and prevent its adverse effects. Juris has a diverse technological background, having worked in areas such as software development, information security, hardware and software deployment and maintenance for many years. In recent years, he agreed to participate in a project to automate the inspection of trains, just as the notion of artificial intelligence and machine learning were beginning to reach the mainstream. After this success, Juris and his team have been trying to apply the latest discoveries in these subjects to real-life business problems. Juris’ main driving force is the efficient application of theoretical technology to real-world problems. Juris is also a petrolhead with a passion for traveling the world on his motorbike or any other engine-powered vehicle.

In a world where nearly any request can be accomplished via a smartphone app and deliveries are being made by drones… can any idea, no matter how outlandish, become a reality? Dan Faggella, the founder of TechEmergence, allows us to see a future in which Artificial Intelligence can be the tool for both technological applications and investigating moral and ethical dilemmas, by providing the best possible solutions that we may not have otherwise known.

What is the value of a human life? Is it more -- or less -- than the value of a deer’s life? What about the value of a robot’s life? And what happens when artificial intelligence develops to the point where a robot can feel and sense and become self-aware? In this forward-thinking talk, technologist and artificial intelligence expert Dan Faggella explores these thorny questions that get at the heart of what it means to be human. (More)

This talk was given at a local TEDx event, produced independently of the TED Conferences. We live in a world where paralyzed people can answer emails with a chip in their brain, where people with severe depression can get electrodes implanted into their brain to increase their sense of well-being and joy, and where we're successfully experimenting with replacing portions of mammalian brains with digital devices. Humanity is on the verge of a "leap" into a future where consciousness is malleable, accessible, expandable. If nothing "matters" outside of conscious awareness, isn't tinkering with consciousness itself (the bedrock or moral relevance) worth an open-minded, well-intended, and interdisciplinary global conversation ... as we take steps forward beyond what is now "human?"

We live in one of the most exciting and disruptive technological ages – the age of AI. Major breakthroughs will have profound implications on our lives and on our society in general. While we continuously push the frontier of technological innovations, with the goal of empowering organizations, developers and our society, new questions arise around how we deploy AI responsibly. In this AI Summit San Francisco keynote, Microsoft AI CTO Joseph Sirosh shares how together we can achieve more when we put people at the center of AI design. (More)

AI presents a huge opportunity for businesses to personalize and improve customer experiences and improve efficiency, but the technical complexity of AI puts it out of reach for most companies.

Where will you work in the future? As automation revs its engine and academic institutions take up megaphones to predict the end of the human workforce, we may have overlooked a vast area of employment where human intelligence and machine intelligence collaborate, says Paul Daugherty, chief technology and innovation officer at Accenture. Daugherty calls this the "missing middle"—an employment-rich zone for people in humanities, STEM, and service jobs. There are three specific kinds of jobs that A.I. is creating right now: trainers, explainers, and sustainers. Here, Daughtery explains each type of job and delves further into how A.I. will change the future of work for people in design, customer service, and medicine.

Romy Lorenz is a cognitive neuroscientist with a multidisciplinary background in psychology and biomedical engineering. Currently, she is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow in the Computational, Cognitive and Clinical Neuroimaging Lab (C3NL) at Imperial College London.
Her research interest lies in developing brain-computer interfaces (BCIs) and artificial intelligence (AI) using different neuroimaging techniques and by applying machine learning. Rather than looking at BCIs through the lens of assistive technology though, she is passionate about using BCIs as a new experimental paradigm in cognitive neuroscience.
She received her PhD from Imperial College London where she have developed an “AI neuroscientist” – a novel BCI for optimizing experimental design by combining real-time fMRI with Bayesian optimization.
Alongside her research, she is working as a co-director for AXNS, a curatorial collective interested in the intersection between neuroscience and art.

Many artificial intelligence researchers expect AI to outsmart humans at all tasks and jobs within decades, enabling a future where we're restricted only by the laws of physics, not the limits of our intelligence. MIT physicist and AI researcher Max Tegmark separates the real opportunities and threats from the myths, describing the concrete steps we should take today to ensure that AI ends up being the best -- rather than worst -- thing to ever happen to humanity.

As a physicist, Max Tegmark sees people as "food, rearranged." That makes his answer to complicated questions like "What is consciousness?" simple: It's just math. Why? Because it's the patterns, not the particles, that matter. Learn more about Max Tegmark at http://space.mit.edu/home/tegmark/mathematical.html and TEDxCambridge at http://www.tedxcambridge.com.
