Artificial intelligence could have some great benefits for us humans , in the sense that , for example , there is no reason to believe A.I. could not break free from the constraints our Biological Brain is subjected to , including the "Cause and Effect" mechanism that prevents us humans to fully understand and visualise how our Universe came about in the first place , out of absolutely nothing and without a prior cause ! There are also risks involved in the sense that A.I. could eventually make us humans redundant as a distinct species , of course . But is it worth taking this risk ? In the end I think it will be inevitable that we must take this opportunity , and risks associated with it , simply because human hunger for knowledge will override the fear of being made obsolete by far superior intelligence .

No no no, 250k Teslas sold in 2018 vs 86 MILLION Cars solds worldwide... less than 0.5% of all the cars have some level of autonomy, of course autonomous cars crash less because it's population is almost nothing compared to regular cars. I agree AI will help a lot, but is not fair to compare crashes of autonomous vs driven cars as of yet. (6:46)

AIs with curiosity, which explore without immediate rewards, have already been made. For reference check two minute papers channel.

Was searching for a Ted Talk resource to integrate into AI learning module for Entrepreneurship and Law classes. Just perfect and it's recent- gives the content, speaker and message "right now" relevance and authenticity. Lucky teacher; lucky students. Thank you.
