James Barrat talked about his book, Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era, in which he explores the threat of runaway Artificial Intelligence. Mr. Barrat argued that we are headed into a future in which machines will be able to outthink humans and may eventually view us in the same way that we think of lower life-forms today. He says that many people in the Artificial Intelligence community acknowledge the threat but have largely ignored it so far. This event was hosted by the Annapolis Book Store in Annapolis, Maryland. close
