Will the Machines Take Over?

Human Uniqueness in the Age of Smart Machines

Join us at 7:30 PST live online on Wednesday, July 11 for a fascinating evening exploring these questions as part of the launch of Discovery Institute’s new Walter Bradley Center for Natural and Artificial Intelligence, named in honor of Discovery Institute Fellow Walter Bradley, whose distinguished academic career included professorships at both Texas A&M and Baylor University.

The presentation will feature William Dembski, Robert Marks, Michael Egnor, and George Montañez

Physicist Stephen Hawking warned humanity that “the development of artificial intelligence (AI) could spell the end of the human race… Humans, who are limited by slow biological evolution, couldn’t compete, and would be superseded.” To meet the challenge of AI, Hawking urged the creation of “some form of world government.”

But will AI really spell the doom of the human race? Is it truly capable of making humans obsolete? Or could it provide an opportunity for greater creativity and productivity based on a renewed understanding of human uniqueness?
