Musk vs. Zuck: Are AI and Robots a Threat…or an Opportunity?
Should we believe headlines about AI and robots stealing jobs, replacing drivers, doctors, and lawyers? Is the Singularity coming? Are AI and Robots an existential threat to humans?
"Automation Anxiety" has a long history, with widespread pronouncements about the imminent loss of jobs to Automation. In contrast to the science-fiction fearmongering around the "Singularity", the award-winning Roboticist from UC Berkeley, Prof. Ken Goldberg, will propose an inclusive alternative: "Multiplicity," where diverse groups of humans work together with diverse groups of machines to innovate and solve problems.
In this fascinating talk, Prof. Goldberg will share results from his research in robotics and their global study suggesting how AI could lead to a more productive and inclusive future for humans.
