AI pioneer Yoshua Bengio explores paths forward to human-level artificial intelligence at the January 2017 Asilomar conference organized by the Future of Life Institute.

The Beneficial AI 2017 Conference: In our sequel to the 2015 Puerto Rico AI conference, we brought together an amazing group of AI researchers from academia and industry, and thought leaders in economics, law, ethics, and philosophy for five days dedicated to beneficial AI. We hosted a two-day workshop for our grant recipients and followed that with a 2.5-day conference, in which people from various AI-related fields hashed out opportunities and challenges related to the future of AI and steps we can take to ensure that the technology is beneficial.

Sam Silver says:

Kurzweil is such a charlatan it's ridiculous. I can't imagine how the actual experts in the room feel when he spouts off his ideas.

animeisart1 says:

I love how Kurzweil doesn't ask a question. He just tells them what's going to happen

Cam says:

I could feel a little bit of tension between Yoshua Bengio and Ray Kurzweil. 👍

Ahmad M. says:

I am developing AGI too ! 😀

scientious says:

This didn't amount to much. What is missing is a comprehensive theory of human intelligence. When it will arrive is most likely 2021 assuming Trump isn't re-elected. The first human-level AI will probably arrive five or six years after that. I noticed that you mentioned computational power as one of the missing items which indicates that your understanding of general AI is no better than Kurzweil's.

Stefan Reich says:

I'm doing it (creating that level of AI)
