A number of well-known AI researchers — and Elon Musk — have signed an open letter calling on AI labs around the world to pause development of large-scale AI systems, citing fears over the “profound risks to society and humanity” they claim this software poses.
The letter, published by the nonprofit Future of Life Institute, notes that AI labs are currently locked in an “out-of-control race” to develop and deploy machine learning systems “that no one — not even their creators — can understand, predict, or reliably control.”
The promise of neurotechnology to improve lives and to gain insight into the human brain is growing. How can we uphold data privacy and personal freedom as we make strides toward a world of brain transparency?
This session is moderated by Atlantic CEO Nicholas Thompson, while Nita A. Farahany from Duke University School of Law, who is also a leading scholar on the ethical, legal, and social implications of emerging technologies, throws light on what the world of brain transparency would look like.
