The Cambridge Red Cross Lecture

Machine Intelligence, Utopia or Dystopia?

This lecture on machine intelligence will compare man-made machines with biological machines like animals and humans. Many beleive the intelligence of both will soon be comparable and that artificial intelligence will grow more rapidly than biological. Managing the transition to life with entities that are smarter than humans could become a challenge in the 21st century. Both utopian and dystopian scenarios will be discussed in this lecture.
