I’m sorry! Wait?? Are we supposed to be impressed by this? Millions of lives are being or will be destroyed with indifference and this guy who writes the very algorithms doing that is applauded. Well done, humans 🙄

Hello there AI people. It sure seems to be a challenge to predict the weather. This Saturday the weather report was totally incorrect for Orlando Florida. You know you have at least one hundred years of weather data for every day of the year. Don't you think a good test for artificial intelligence would be to see if it could predict the weather? Weather a person can bank on is valuable, This week the weather report broke my bank.

AI is a tool. SJW types working as human emphatic moderators are also tools.

Not very impressed with this at all. A.I. automation would transform the world, allowing humans the opportunity to not have to work. Automation and A.I. are meant to make our lives more convenient, make our lives easier and better. Automating jobs is GREAT, not a bad thing!

@Christopher Kolobanov UBI is being discussed as part of that equation.
Christopher Kolobanov
how would one make a living to buy essentials? Would everything be free; food, water, shelter? What about the economy?

Narrow AI, which is what he talked about is just an advanced program. Actual AI is reaching a breaking point in computations and algorithms, paired with recursive learning to fact check its thought process, while understanding the impact that it's having around it when applying it's processes. It needs to understand context and reading what is going on, understand why, and reason whether it should consider adding some changes in previous lines of thought, due to negative outcomes that it wasn't expecting. The "AI Revolution" we have now is still far too narrow to mean much. It could potentially replace countless tasks, but it is a far cry from being intelligent in a conscious and aware way. Probably 20-40 years from now, we may actually see intelligence rivaling out own from computers, and surpassing it in many regards due to its capacity as a machine. Until such a time, it's hard to actually consider what we have now as Artificial Intelligence. It's just a mockery of the term to consider Narrow AI actually AI. Like comparing an ant to an aardvark in terms of hierarchy in the ecosystem.

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 .

@Fernanda Abreu Where is your proof that AI would made humans "obsolete" ? I don't see any evidence for that ! There is a remote risk involved but it's not worth taking this risk ? I think it is because the possible benefits overweight those minor risks. Human will be made redundant by some other more Intelligent species one day anyway that is almost inevitable . You seem to regard AI as your "enemies" number 1 which is certainly not the case . These are atavic "fears" which go back to the dawn of mankind when our ape-like ancestors were always watching over their shoulder for imminent and ever present dangers ! We are mislead into believing that AI is our enemy number 1 by superstitious individuals not by proper scientists you know ! Human hunger for Scientific knowledge will override any "fear" of being made obsolete by some other brighter stuff it's just in our human nature to want to know more about everything that exists around us !

I'm sorry, but I don't think you've chosen your words correctly, then. You paint a horrible picture where humans would have been "made obsolete as species", "replaced", "outsmarted", yet you start your thought with the idea of these very perpetrators being somehow "beneficial for us humans IN THE SENSE THAT". That made no sense, I'm afraid.

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)

Daniel Enrique Velazquez Borja i think you might be wrong, look at the statistik in 6.42 then he has taken amount Of crashes divided by amount Of miles driven. It doesnt matten if there is more Of one the statistik show that human has hugger crashpercent....

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.
