[Video] AI and the Future of Humanity With Nick Bostrom

When we talk about high level Artificial Intelligence, our minds directly divert to the Hollywood Sci-Fi’s, the time where robots powered with AI will be able to think and feel as us. What will be the future of it- disruptive or advantageous?

Nick Bostrom heads the Future of Humanity Institute, a research group of mathematicians, philosophers and scientists at Oxford University tasked with investigating the big picture for the human condition and its future.

AI is improving and increasing in leaps and bounds, the technology in this era is advancing more rapidly. Should we be afraid of the apocalyptic situation that might occur when we reach at the peak of AI? In this video Nick explains how would the future look like, what precautions should be taken to avoid a future where technology replaces humanity.

He asks just one question: Will our smart machines help to preserve humanity and our values — or will they have values of their own?
