How disruptive will machine intelligence be? Could machines become better than humans? How do we programme artificially intelligent beings to achieve our goals?
This talk will contrast the biological version of intelligent machines (humans) with artificial design, starting with neurons vs transistors and comparing ears and eyes with microphones and cameras before drawing conclusions for autonomous vehicles and other robots.
The talk will finish with some general remarks about machine learning and artificial intelligence and how they will fundamentally restructure a number of major industry sectors, like cars, finance, and the pharma industry.
