GeekSpeak – how do we make sure that artificial intelligence can be trusted? Join the discussion Saturday Nov 19th at 12pm slt

Is it possible to make sure that no AI could ever harm humans, start a war or crash the economy? If they did any of those things could they be prosecuted?

Are we in danger?  Should we be thinking of how to protect ourselves?  Or do you think AIs will be safer than humans, more likely to check facts and think rationally and less likely to become angry or be swayed by propaganda?

Is it possible for us to trust AIs completely?  Will the uncanny valley always make us dislike them?  Or will we (or they) get past that?  Will Asimov’s three laws of robotics protect us?  Or are those laws impossible to program into a real AI?

Will they be our servants, our friends, our masters or will they get rid of us altogether?  Come and talk about AI.  But leave your calculator at home; it could be working for THEM.
