Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence with Max Tegmark and Neil deGrasse Tyson


Artificial intelligence is growing at an astounding rate, but are we ready for the consequences? Cosmologist and MIT physics professor Max Tegmark guides us through the state of artificial intelligence today, and the many paths we might take in further developing this technology. This Frontiers Lecture, moderated by Neil deGrasse Tyson, took place in the Museum's Hayden Planetarium on January 8, 2018. Max Tegmark will be participating in the 2018 Isaac Asimov Memorial Debate happening next week at the Museum. The podcast of that event will be available on February 15. ANNOUNCER: It is my pleasure to welcome not one but two of our amazing AMNH curators who will be introducing our presenter for the evening. First up we have Frederick P. Rose director of the Hayden Planetarium, Neil deGrasse Tyson. NEIL DEGRASSE TYSON (Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium): Welcome to the universe. I've just got to see that that show of hands again, is this the first time you've ever attended a Hayden program? We've been here for 60 years.
