Artificial intelligence, increasing humanity for good

Upcoming Chat on Artificial Intelligence sponsored by Carl Kruse

As the scope of AI truly covers almost every task, the growing reliance on it to perform day-to-day activities has spawned anxiety about our future relationship with AI. For this reason, there are concerns about its fair use. This upcoming discussion tackles the issues head-on.

Artificial intelligence (AI) is a technological breakthrough allowing algorithms to absorb and understand data, as well as learn on their own.

Many human tasks have been automated by well-trained AI, which can perform repetitive activities much faster and better than humans. Continuous improvements in AI continue to impact global commerce, traffic management, entertainment, security, healthcare, and myriad other areas.

As with many important human inventions, such as nuclear power, capabilities for good often come with the potential for harm. Bad actors, for example, could manipulate AI for destructive purposes, weaponizing the technology.

As the scope of AI truly covers almost every task, the growing reliance on it to perform day-to-day activities has spawned anxiety about our future relationship with AI. For this reason, there are concerns about its fair use.

The SETI Institute has invited two AI experts for a discussion to explore the benefits – and some of the pitfalls – of deploying AI for the future of society. Alex Lavin and Siddha Ganju, two AI experts and entrepreneurs, come together to talk about all things AI. Trillium Company Chief James Paar moderates the conversation. The chat hopes to provide an accessible conversation about technologies vital to the future of humanity.

The chat is scheduled for Wednesday, January 19, 2022 starting at 6 p.m. California time.

It is planned as an online-only event and is free, although registration is required.

Carl Kruse, president of the Berlin chapter of the Princeton University Alumni Association in Germany, is sponsoring these SETI talks.

All SETI chats are free, subscribed by supporters and friends. Anyone interested in supporting a SETI chat can contact the SETI Institute at [email protected]

Based in Mountain View, California, the SETI Institute is the world’s largest organization focused on the scientific search for extraterrestrial intelligence. Its more than 100 researchers study the nature of the universe and the prevalence of life beyond our world.

Since 2015, the CarlKruse.org blog has been spotlighting nonprofit groups and people who are making the world a better place. The blog sponsored the SETI Talk: Are UAPs Worth Scientific Attention? Its members have been active in the SETIatHome project and follow developments in scientific space exploration, artificial intelligence and computer technology.
