How should we respond to the idea that advances in AI pose catastrophic risks for the wellbeing of humanity? London Futurists, hosting the UK Node of The Millennium Project with its Co-Chair David Wood, will discuss how to Assess AI Risk Skepticism on the upcoming webinar set on May 27, 2023.
Two sets of arguments have been circulating online for many years, but in light of recent events, are now each mutating into new forms and are attracting much more attention from the public. The first set argues that AI risks are indeed serious. The second set is skeptical. It argues that the risks are exaggerated, or can easily be managed, and are a distraction from more important issues and opportunities.
In this London Futurists webinar, David Wood will be assessing the skeptical views and he will be joined by Vemir Ambartsoumean and Roman Yampolskiy, and by Mariana Todorova, Chair of the Bulgaria Node of the Millennium Project and member of the Millennium Project’s AGI scenarios study team.
This event is free and will start broadcasting at 4pm UK time on Sat 27th May.
