What should we do about unbelievably intelligent AI? | Ben Ross | TEDxMacquarieUniversity

Within our lifetime, computers will reach, and then exceed human intelligence. So what should we do about it? Embracing artificial intelligence might be the key to finding cures to currently incurable, unpreventable, and unstoppable diseases such as Alzheimer’s. Ben Ross explains why computers will inevitably beat brains, what possibilities exist for the application of artificial intelligence, and why we need to start preparing for super intelligent, artificial intelligence now.

Ben Ross spent his childhood pulling electronic devices apart but luckily in adulthood he’s expanded into building; building technology, specifically. As a User Experience and Product Management leader at MYOB, he works with his team to put together technology solutions that make life easier for small businesses and accountants. Ben is passionate about the power of automation and artificial intelligence, but his intelligence is all real.
