Isaac Asimov’s famous Three Laws of Robotics might be seen as early safeguards for our reliance on artificial intelligence, but as Alexa guides our homes and automated cars replace human drivers, are those Three Laws enough?

Neil deGrasse Tyson, Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, hosts and moderates a lively discussion about how A.I. is opening doors to limitless possibilities, and if we’re ready for them. The 2018 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate took place at the Museum on February, 13, 2018.

Daran Clinton says:

I fell asleep

Namiko Jovan says:

I can't bear to watch he keeps cuttin everybody off

Namiko Jovan says:

He's so irritating and obnoxious and he thinks he's funny😑 he's been getting on my nerves since I was a newborn when he had that space show in the late 80s I don't even know your name I can't stand he keeps cutting the scientist off like shut up!!!!! His head takes up the stage well I bet you the other head ain't half the size its supposed to be no I'm not gay I'm a transman😉😁😩🤣🤣🤣💀💀⚰⚰⚰🙃 you can tell they're gettin irritated geeez

Len Gould says:

Some issues:
1) ? Human babies cultured in vitro enabling overcoming the human mother birth canal limit to brain size.
2) Consciousness is merely a means of prioritizing possible actions.
3) Consider a deep neural net where each neuron (in a layer or region) has additional external inputs which can excite or suppress activity similar to testosterone or dopamine.

Staole says:

If the "great filter" hypothesis is true, I suspect we are about to smash our face into it very soon.

Yonas Yohannes says:

No it was google facial ml that had built facial bias, indeed google instead of regroup de-bias and retrain the ML they instead deny and fired Dr. Timnit Ghebru the AI researcher that, uncovered issues. Google not to long ago ( we rare in 2021 now) google had to apologize for the biased racist result their devices gave. Perhaps the best thing for Google is step out of their arrogant bubble define what the ethics means to them as IBM watson guys did and focus on humbly develop an good product that humanity can all benefits from. Learn from Watson, the humble but powerful approach IBMers are following, respect scientist view, science means to be open and accept criticism of your products and finding…

Yonas Yohannes says:

Robots are always weaponized by the time all the times, men are this guys are serious, robot laws, there is such things

Yonas Yohannes says:

Sensing element DOES NOT categorize a device as AI.

Yonas Yohannes says:

Robot cannot hurt human is nonsense, it depends who built them, military drones have always killed thousand of people including children. So robot are not going hurt people is not reality…

SkyHawk SH says:

Neil deGrasse Tyson is such a stimulating & funny conversational group speaker so enjoy this presentation

Flayerthehatebound says:

The prequel to The Matrix says otherwise…

Christine Lesko says:

you guys are professional pals, hugging and blending those problem solving skills… You lead the world's people. Thank you, engineer student, Christine Lesko retired auto mechanic. ) Do you have tips on how to use my telescope better, and what could I really see with this? Thanks! C.L.

Jerry Norman says:

And let me add; I would only place this urgency online now because who knows when we collectively could not contact each other because of our government's and big money around the world. We already have big business controlling and recording, what, where, who, our fears, our enjoyments ( men/women types), and where we would hide.
