Following the story of Stephen Hawking’s concerns about AI and robots as threats to humanity, I debate with Nick Bostrom (Director of the Future of Humanity Institute, University of Oxford) about the root of these threats – are they really from the technology? Or are these threats really the worries of the scientists who make them in and for a militaristic framework?
AI and Robots are what humans create. We are responsible for these creations. And if Robots and AI are made in our own image, we have to be sure what we’re projecting into these machines.
