“AI Empowerment, Value Alignment, and the Broader Conversation”
FLI president Max Tegmark’s TED Talk on the risks and opportunities of artificial intelligence was released. In the talk, Max separates the real opportunities and threats of artificial intelligence from the myths, describing the concrete steps we should take today to ensure that AI ends up being the best — rather than worst — thing to ever happen to humanity.
