Machines will soon surpass human intelligence. How do we stop it destroying the human spirit? The former Chief Business Officer at Google [X] is here with a plan.

By the year 2029, it is predicted that machine intelligence will break out of specific tasks and into general intelligence and that by 2049, AI will be a billion times smarter, in everything, than the smartest human. If AI is Einstein and humans are a fly, how do we convince this super being not to squash the fly?

In this livestream event, Mo Gawdat, one of the world’s most authoritative experts, will outline the actions we must take to safeguard the future of our species. We are the “parents” of AI, responsible for instilling its value systems: and so far we’ve not been very good ones. Humanity’s own arrogance, greed, violence and division have helped to create a dystopian future of AI.

The time has come to and argues that it is in our power to make real change and avoid the erasure of our way of life. Through real examples from science and engineering, an exploration of whether AI can ever be contained and insights into how machines have evolved so quickly, this event will allow us to understand how we can better educate machine intelligence through our own actions so that it will work with us and not against us in the future.
