Joanna Shields, CEO BenevolentAI gives the opening speech "Thinking Deep on the Future of AI" at the The Festival of All Things AI, Blockchain and Emerging Technologies.
"[...] These are not the only questions or necessarily even the right ones but they are questions worth considering if we truly want to get this revolution right [...]
Question1: When it comes to abdicating responsibilities for our decisions to machines, how far do we go? What boundaries do we set? And who gets to set them?
Question 2: So, what happens when our relationship with technology stops being that of creator and creation? What happens when AI begins creating itself?
Question 3: How do we make sure we get the AI we deserve? How do we get the AI that ensures we, as a society, can fix our biggest problems and provide well-being for all?”
