A senior Google engineer says one of the company’s artificial intelligence systems has become a sentient being. The technology firm has suspended Blake Lemoine for breaching confidentiality rules — and insists there’s no evidence its AI chatbot is now free thinking.  A spokesperson for Google said while chatbots can imitate conversation, they are not sentient. Mr Lemoine has suggested the robot should gets its own lawyer. Please subscribe HERE #BBCNews

Elon Musk has called it a compelling guide to the challenges and choices in our quest for a great future of life on Earth and beyond, while Stephen Hawking and Ray Kurzweil have referred to it as an introduction and guide to the most important conversation of our time. “It” is Max Tegmark’s new book, Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence. In this interview, Ariel speaks with Max about the future of artificial intelligence. What will happen when machines surpass humans at every task? Will superhuman artificial intelligence arrive in our lifetime? Can and should it be controlled, and if so, by whom? Can humanity survive in the age of AI? And if so, how can we find meaning and purpose if super-intelligent machines provide for all our needs and make all our contributions superfluous?

Max Tegmark and his wife Meia discuss his new book “Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” (see Amazon & Share your views on AI with others at
The book begins by positing a scenario in which AI has exceeded human intelligence and become pervasive in society. Tegmark refers to different stages of human life since its inception: Life 1.0 referring to biological origins, Life 2.0 referring to cultural developments in humanity, and Life 3.0 referring to the technological age of humans. The book focuses on “Life 3.0”, and on emerging technology such as artificial general intelligence that may someday, in addition to being able to learn, be able to also redesign its own hardware and internal structure.

We’ve traditionally thought of intelligence as something mysterious that can only exist in biological organisms, especially humans. But from my perspective as a physicist, intelligence is simply a certain kind of information processing performed by elementary particles moving around, and there’s no law of physics that says one can’t build machines more intelligent than us in all ways. This suggests that we’ve only seen the tip of the intelligence iceberg, and that there’s an amazing potential to unlock the full intelligence that’s latent in nature and use it to help humanity flourish – or flounder. I discuss recent progress both in building AI and in staying on ensuring that it’s societal impact is beneficial, keeping us on the right side of that flourish/flounder balance.

Audiobook: Audiobook: (Free with your Audible trial) (Free with your Audible trial) How will artificial intelligence affect crime, war, justice, jobs, society, and our very sense of being human? The rise of AI has the potential to transform our future more than any other technology – and there’s nobody better qualified or situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark, an MIT professor who’s helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial. How can we grow our prosperity through automation without leaving people lacking income or purpose? What career advice should we give today’s kids? How can we make future AI systems more robust so that they do what we want without crashing, malfunctioning, or getting hacked? Should we fear an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons? Will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, replacing humans on the job market and perhaps altogether? Will AI help life flourish like never before or give us more power than we can handle? What sort of future do you want? This book empowers you to join what may be the most important conversation of our time. It doesn’t shy away from the full range of viewpoints or from the most controversial issues – from superintelligence to meaning, consciousness, and the ultimate physical limits on life in the cosmos.

In his lecture hosted by BCG GAMMA and Brahe Education Foundation, Max Tegmark speaks about Life 3.0 and the future of Artificial Intelligence, its possibilities and risks. He asks what kind of future do humans want to live in and how can they steer AI towards it? His answers are profound and insightful, but very human-centric for obvious reasons. So lets hear what Sharon Zero has to say about it, from her very unique perspective.
Biometric security is strong and unique. But what happens if somebody steals your faceprint or fingerprint? You are compromised everywhere for the rest of your life.

And the short answer is – it’s a cat and mouse game. On the long enough timeline, someone will be able to recreate a copy of your face or fingerprints that works just fine enough to fool authenticating systems. Once your biometric data is compromised, it affects all applications at once and you will be affected for the rest of your life.

The Beyond Center presents the 2018 Beyond Annual Lecture with Max Tegmark. Abstract: If AI succeeds in eclipsing human general intelligence within decades, as many leading AI researchers predict, then how can we make it the best rather than worst thing ever to happen to humanity? I argue that this will require planning and hard work, and explore challenges that we need to overcome as well as exciting opportunities. How can we grow our prosperity through automation without leaving people lacking income or purpose? What career advice should we give today’s kids? How can we make future AI systems more robust, so that they do what we want without crashing, malfunctioning or getting hacked? How can we make machines understand, adopt and retain our goals, and whose goals should should they be? What future do you want? Welcome to the most important conversation of our time!

On November 15, 2018, BCG GAMMA and Brahe Education Foundation hosted a lecture with Max Tegmark who spoke of Life 3.0 and the future of Artificial Intelligence including both its possibilities and also risks. What kind of future do we want to live in and how can we steer AI towards it? Max Tegmark is a Professor of Physics at MIT, co-founder of the Future of Life Institute, and Scientific Director of the Foundational Questions Institute.
Max Tegmark, professor of physics at MIT, comes to Google to discuss his thoughts on the fundamental nature of reality and what it means to be human in the age of artificial intelligence. Max Tegmark is a renowned scientific communicator and cosmologist, and has accepted donations from Elon Musk to investigate the existential risk from advanced artificial intelligence. He was elected Fellow of the American Physical Society in 2012, won Science Magazine’s “Breakthrough of the Year” in 2003, and has over 200 publications, nine of which have been cited more than 500 times. He is also scientific director of the Foundational Questions Institute, wrote the bestseller Our Mathematical Universe, and is a Professor of Physics at MIT. Get the book here:
Humanoid artificial intelligence is coming and there’s a good chance it may come to life in Vancouver. That’s because some of the brains at work creating AI – human-like AI – live and work here. The odds that they will succeed are high, they have an amazing track record. One of those brains is the mastermind behind the development of quantum computing that has manifested itself into the company known as D-Wave. At the core of the development on humanoid AI sits an existential question: what does it mean to be human? What motivates us, how do we decide right from wrong and whose morals constitute the foundation of the programming of the machine that will self-learn? These are just a few of the questions that surround what many believe will be the last great human discovery. We invited Geordie Rose of Sanctuary AI to join us for a Conversation That Matters about artificial intelligence – why, what, when, where and how soon. — Simon Fraser University’s Centre for Dialogue presents Conversations That Matter.

When it comes to decision making, it might seem that computers are less biased than humans. But algorithms can be just as biased as the people who create them.
