Artificial intelligence (AI) is changing our lives. It touches on all aspects of society – private life, business, security — including in the spread of fake news and the challenges posed by the advent of autonomous weapons. This documentary looks at the rapid change digitalization is causing as it unfolds. In particular, breakthroughs in artificial intelligence are opening completely new horizons. In their film about AI, Tilman Wolff and Ranga Yogeshwar examine the role AI plays in the spread of fake news. They also consider a future with robots and the risks and ethical questions posed by the development of autonomous weapons. To address these issues, they travel the globe to speak with leading experts. AI can generate perfectly forged sound and videos, making it effective for purveying fake news. Discerning the truth from fiction will become increasingly difficult. Technology will streamline work, making some jobs surplus to requirements. Software will pilot self-driving cars and aerial drones. AI is rapidly opening up new vistas, but turning blind corners at speed can be risky. How sensible is this type of progress, and at which point should society step in and set limits to its development?

Panelists: Ben Goertzel, Marcus Hutter, Joscha Bach, Peter Cheeseman This panel was held at the ‘Artificial Intelligence / Human Possibilities’ event as adjunct to the AGI17 conference in Melbourne 2017. Assessing emerging risks and opportunities in machine cognition With AI Experts Ben Goertzel, Marcus Hutter, Peter Cheeseman and Joscha Bach. Event Focus: Given significant developments in Artificial Intelligence, it’s worth asking: What aspects of ideal AI have not been achieved yet? There is good reason for the growing media storm around AI – many experts agree on the big picture that with the development of Superintelligent AI (including Artificial General Intelligence) humanity will face great challenges (some polls suggest that AGI is not far). Though in order to best manage both the opportunities and risks we need to achieve a clearer picture – this requires sensitivity to ambiguity, precision of expression and attention to theoretical detail in understanding the implications of AI, communicating/discussing AI, and ultimately engineering beneficial AI.

In a recent article on Medium, Los Angeles Entrepreneur, Consultant, investor, and TED speaker Sid Mohasseb argued that the AI train has left the station and attempts to stop it will be futile. In the last few months, we have seen even more pessimism spread onto AI from the likes of Elon Musk and Bill Gates. The media have given a lot of echoes, perhaps purposely given that the topic increases eyeballs, to these opinion makers. At a recent Joe Rogan Youtube interview, Elon Musk reiterated that AI is potentially more dangerous than nuclear weapons and that it is insane for the government not to regulate it. In this interview with Paolo Messina, Sid revisits and expands his previous conclusions. At first, he digs in the concept of the human ability to adapt to a changed scenario. He articulates a clear and crispy business vision. His viewpoint is that as long as AI creates business value adoption will make sense and will result in an overall benefit for business and society. When it comes to job disruption, the ability of machines to take over human society, Sid has a very simple yet profound viewpoint. He exemplifies it with an example. He says that when we invented the knife we could have claimed that it could be used to kill people and that we would lose the ability to chew raw meat well, finally saying that our teethes would become less sharp and effective. However, when we look at the invention [More]

The Dean’s Distinguished Lecture Series in Information Technology and Society is proud to present Alex “Sandy” Pentland, Professor of Media Arts and Sciences, Toshiba Professor, Media Lab Entrepreneurship Program Director, Massachusetts Institute of Technology. Recorded on November 15, 2018 at UC Irvine. TITLE “The Future of AI and Human Society: HumanAI” ABSTRACT How can we live in a world of AI, big data, social media echo chambers and cyberattacks? How can we create a cyberculture with a human feel, but yet is competitive with cultures where the machines run everything? The core of current AI is the idea of a credit assignment function, reinforcing connections between “neurons” that are helping. So, what would happen if the neurons were people? People have lots of capabilities; they know lots of things about the world; they can perceive things in a human way. What would happen if you had a network of people where you could reinforce connections between people that were helping and discourage the connections that weren’t? What concrete steps do we have to take in order to transform our current world into one that naturally becomes smarter and smarter, which can absorb AI without changing its human flavor, and which is robust to attacks of all sorts? BIO MIT Professor Alex “Sandy” Pentland previously helped create and direct the MIT Media Lab, and is one of the most-cited computational scientists in the world. He is a founding member of advisory boards for Google, AT&T, Nissan, and the UN Secretary General, [More]
Alex “Sandy” Pentland is the director of the MIT Connection Science and Human Dynamics labs and previously helped create and direct the MIT Media Lab. He is one of the most-cited computational scientists in the world, a member of the U.S. National Academies, and has received numerous awards and prizes such as the McKinsey Award from Harvard Business Review, the DARPA Network Challenge, and the Brandeis Award for work in privacy. His most recent books are Social Physics (Penguin Press) and Honest Signals (MIT Press). Pentland delivered his Shannon Luminary Lecture “The future of AI and human society: HumanAI” on October 25, 2018. AI is most often thought of as creating artificial humans, which raises the question of AI replacing humans. But if we ask how to build an intelligent system that incorporates both humans and AIs, we will find that there is a (relatively) clean formalism for building such a hybrid. Moreover, there are already early examples of such systems that feel not only human and natural but even positively delightful.
