Effektiv Altruisme at UiO presents the debate Man vs Machine during the UiO Festival 2017. The debate is about Artificial Intelligence and its potential risks in society.
The robots help us, while taking our jobs. But do they represent an existential threat against humanity, and how do we evaluate such risks around artifical intelligence? What life is worth rescuing? What are our backup-plans?
AI-researcher Morten Goodwin from the Centre for Artificial Intelligence Research at the University of Agder, and Academic Project Manager Haydn Belfield from Cambridge Centre for Existential Risks were invited to discuss the challenges artificial intelligence may represent for humanity and life on earth - should it be out of control. With a twinkle in the eye and a dose of critical reflection our experts discussed the solutions that perhaps one day will save all of humanity from extinction. Who has the responsibility? Is it technological or social development we need? What is the risk that we all become slaves for the machines? Dagbladet commentator and layman representative in the Norwegian National Research Ethics Committees, Marit M. Simonsen, is the moderator.
Effektiv Altruisme UiO aims to give students knowledge and motivation to make the greatest positive impact in the world. Effective altruism is a global movement based on the idea of making the world the best for all sentient beings, and we seize the opportunity whereever we have a potential to make a sizable impact.
