AI is going to destroy humanity? Not so fast! Elon Musk is right. We should be concerned about AI's potential to harm humanity but how do we make AI safe? Learn how companies, governments and scientists are working to develop safe, innovative AI to benefit humanity and the challenges they must overcome. Explore how you can participate in AI research. By the year 2020, global spending on artificial intelligence research is estimated to reach $46 billion, with money pouring in from big tech companies, private investors, public institutions and governments. AI is set to change humanity and our world in unimaginable ways and AI research is the fuel catapulting us into to this next era of technological innovation. This workshop, taught by Dr. Seth Baum (Executive Director of The Global Catastrophic Risk Institute and an AI researcher specializing in AI safety and risk) will introduce you to the global AI research ecosystem (the researchers, the companies, the conflicts, the money funding it and and the research leading to new innovations). You will learn how to stay on top of the latest research without becoming overwhelmed, and how you can participate in AI research even if you aren't an academic or a technologist. There will also be plenty of time for Q&A with Dr. Baum.
