Artificial Intelligence: An Opportunity or a Threat?
AI is sometimes seen as a threat to human civilization. Other times it is seen as a boon. Which is it? We are still in the early days of AI development. What use we make of it depends on decisions that need to be made soon. This talk will survey the history of AI and the issues that will govern its, and our, future.
*Please note the location of this talk is now at the Arkell Pavilion at the Southern Vermont Arts Center.
