Artificial intelligence (AI) will transform the world this century. This transition will be a "soft takeoff" in which many sectors of society update together in response to incremental AI developments, though the possibility of a harder takeoff in which a single AI project "goes foom" shouldn't be ruled out. If a rogue AI gained control of Earth, it would proceed to accomplish its goals by colonizing the galaxy and undertaking some very interesting achievements in science and engineering. On the other hand, it would not necessarily respect human values, including the value of preventing the suffering of less powerful creatures. Whether a rogue-AI scenario would entail more expected suffering than other scenarios is a question to explore further. Regardless, the field of AI ethics and policy seems to be a very important space where altruists can make a positive-sum impact along many dimensions. Expanding dialogue and challenging us-vs.-them prejudices could be valuable. This talk will cover various aspects of AI, its applications in different industries, its impact on economy /society and human beings, opportunities for startups and entrepreneurs, and few leading examples. A must attend talk to hear on AI where science and fiction meets together, from serial entrepreneur Akash Sureka, also known as “Father of Auto Search” who patented AI products revolutionizing smartphones as human beings in this space of AI.
