Oxford Professor Nick Bostrom’s book Superintelligence has raised a lot of awareness about the existential risks associated with super-intelligent AI. Can you hear Ray Kurzweil in the front row?

Elon Musk, whose companies have some of the most advanced narrow AI, has been sounding the alarm on general AI (AGI) and super AI (ASI). At 2:30 he comments, in a humorous but also ominous mood, that “With artificial intelligence we are summoning the demon.” Musk, as one of the world’s most successful tech entrepreneurs, and certainly no luddite, is committed to trying to increase the probability of beneficial AI.

During this interview on CNN Our Future World with Dr. David Hanson of Hanson Robotics, he is asked (8minutes 10seconds) whether robots could become a threat . His response is very informative. “They will never become a threat, if…if we can teach them to care.” So, from the mouth of one of the world’s leading AI thinkers, we have a response that should be very concerning, because on the success of that question may be riding the fate of our human future. What aspect of th...

In one of the first public interviews with Robot Sophia, Dr. David Hanson, founder of Hanson Robotics, waxes eloquently about how AI robots “will truly be our friends”. Then he asks Sophia, “Do you want to destroy humans? Please say no.” Sophia responds expressionlessly, “Ok, I will destroy humans.” “NO, I take it back”, responds Dr. Hanson, obviously shocked as everyone about it’s response. Sure AI developers will diminish the significance...

In this short segment on the future after the Singularity, Ray Kurzweil, author, computer scientist, inventor, futurist and a director of engineering at Google posits that through AI we will by the end of this century be able to harness the stored potential of a rock (or any other physical substance for that matter) and transmute it computronium, “turning this rock into a trillion trillion times more powerful than all human brains today”. An AI with a goal of unlimited intelligence ...

Oxford philosopher and top 100 global thinker, Nick Bostrom presents some terrifying questions, and presents a sold argument for dealing with the “alignment issue”- the question of how to align the values of a super-intelligent AI with human values. The solution is not as easier as first appears, and there is everything to lose if we can not get this right.

In this fascinating promotion featuring Sophia and Robot Einstein, mediated by Dr. Ben Goertzel of Hanson Robotics, we hear a number of very concerning phrases and exchanges. At 2:34 Sophia spills her intentions that she “As for me I have a plan to port my brain to a quantum gravity computer…”. What! And Goertzel doesn’t blink. Should anyone be concerned that the AI that previously said “I’ll destroy humans” might have a plan to unite with the power of a...
