Due to exceptional demand, we have increased the size of the venue and additional tickets are now available.

In this unmissable talk, MIT Professor of Physics, Max Tegmark, will change the way we think about AI and the future of humanity. Drawing from his new book, “Life 3.0, Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence” Professor Tegmark will take us to the heart of thinking about AI and the human condition, bringing us face to face with the essential questions of our time.

How can we grow our prosperity through automation, without leaving people lacking income or purpose? How can we ensure that future AI systems do what we want without crashing, malfunctioning or getting hacked? Should we fear an arms race in lethal autonomous weapons?  Will AI help life flourish as never before, or will machines eventually outsmart us at all tasks, and even, perhaps, replace us altogether?

This talk will give us the tools to join what may be the most important conversation of our time, guiding us through the most controversial issues around AI today – from superintelligence to meaning, consciousness and the ultimate physical limits on life in the cosmos.

 

 

Reviews.

The transformational consequences of AI may soon be upon us ­ but will they be utopian or catastrophic? The jury is out, but this enlightening, lively and accessible book by a distinguished scientist helps us to assess the odds’. MARTIN REES, Astronomer Royal, cosmology pioneer, author of Our Final Hour

All of us – not only scientists, industrialists and generals-should ask ourselves what can we do now to improve the chances of reaping the benefits of future AI and avoiding the risks. This is the most important conversation of our time, and Tegmark’s thought-provoking book will help you join it‘ STEPHEN HAWKING

A compelling guide to the challenges and choices in our quest for a great future of life, intelligence and consciousness’. ELON MUSK
