Future of Artificial Intelligence and the Human Race | Stuart Russell | TEDxYouth@EB

What is artificial intelligence (AI)? How do robots work? Will robots deliver an economic paradise, kill us all, or both?

Stuart Russell is a Professor of Computer Science at UC Berkeley. His research, for which he has won many international awards, covers most aspects of artificial intelligence and machine learning. His book “Artificial Intelligence: A Modern Approach” (co-authored with Peter Norvig) is the standard text in the field. He also works on nuclear weapons treaty verification, banning killer robots, and the long-term future of AI and the human race.
