In another installment of our ‘AI Futures’ series on the ‘AI in Business’ podcast, we host a debate on what Artificial General Intelligence (AGI) will mean for society and the human race writ large. While opinions on the subject diverge wildly from utopian to apocalyptic, the episode features grounded insight from established voices on both sides of the optimism-pessimism spectrum. Representing optimists is philosopher and thinker Roko Mijic, famous for the ‘Roko’s Basilisk’ controversy on the website Lesswrong. On the side of skepticism, we feature Dr. Roman Yampolskiy, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Louisville and a returning guest to the program. The two spar over whether or not AI with evident superior abilities to human beings will mean our certain destruction or whether such creations can remain subservient to our well-being.
