Crossroads of Ideas: How (Not) to Think About Artificial Intelligence
December 4 @ 7:00 pm - 8:30 pm
We are the only examples of intelligence we know of, but we should not imagine artificial intelligence (AI) having human characteristics. AI is better than us at skills we find difficult, like playing Chess and Go, but currently worse than us at everyday skills like language. Bill Hibbard, a senior scientist emeritus at UW-Madison’s Space Science and Engineering Center, discusses how AI will interact with our lives and how, in the long run, AI will learn about us rather than from us, discounting our biases but exploiting our irrationality to manipulate us.
