What Lies Ahead for Artificial Intelligence.
Billy will be looking at the two paths AI could take: either AI evolves to the point where it becomes what we have become in our social media engagements (abusive, quick to anger, intolerant of other views, nasty, vindictive and judgemental) or it incorporates the best of what we are in real life. In either case, it probably spells doom for us in the long term, either because the horrible social media based AI beings will wipe us out from sheer nastiness or the AI beings that represent our best qualities will wipe us out because we’re too nasty and represent a threat to the future of the planet.
It’s comedy, obviously.
