Do I Actually Need to Worry About AI? A Free Talk.



AI has long been fodder for science fiction, with many authors and film makers warning that it will overtake humanity and destroy us all, or conversely, make our lives easier and happier. So, who is right? Elon Musk calls AI our biggest existential threat, while Mark Zuckerberg thinks such warnings are overblown.

In this talk we will hear from Rosie Campbell, a researcher working on AI projects at the BBC. She is soon to begin working as the Assistant Director of the Center for Human-Compatible AI at UC Berkeley where she will work with Professor Stuart Russell, who literally wrote the book on AI. Rosie is the co-founder of Manchester Futurists, a community group who aim to explore the implications of technological advancement on society. Rosie will discuss the arguments about risks associated with AI and the way the topic is treated in the media.

The talk will be held at pin The Kings Arms, 11 Bloom st, M3 6 City of Salford, on Thursday November 9th at 19.30. The event is hosted by the Greater Manchester Skeptics . Come along, learn and meet fellow skeptics!
