He makes it seem as if AI is no future threat to humans and just brushes it off and shows robots failing.This talk was just to get people out of anxiety mode.

Edward Gardener says:

You do have to worry about skynet because there is no filter for sociopath on planet earth and therefore it is 100% correct assesment to assume that there is a sociopath out there. Government funded or not that is developing right now a Agressive AI that might get out of control and try to take over the war machine it was built for. Thinking of the logic it is actually inevitable. And therefore AI should be avoided. Living communally without drugs and alkohol and honoring the mother goddess tradition with woman who do not have conditional andor are witholding love in charge holds all the awnsers to HOW to live togheter in harmony on planet earth WE DO NOT NEED AI FOR THAT. Even better, communal living and living how the earth was origionally intended BENEFITS from NOT haveing AI.

Sean Barr says:

this is enlightening , it shows me that the TRUE level of tech , AI, computer autonomy , is still WAY WAY WAY off, and so I am now going to look for info on quantum computing , see what the hub bub is all about

QualeQualeson says:

Everyone and their grannies gives talks about AI. The reason why none of them are saying much is cuz no one knows exactly what a true AI is going to be or how it will emerge. Consequently we get the same two talks from all of them. Current software/hardware (which is barely relevant) And the speculations spiel that are either modern day horror or some dude essentially selling something. Lame.
