"AI is likely to be either the best or worst thing to happen to humanity."
"The real question is, when will we draft an artificial intelligence bill of rights? What will that consist of? And who will get to decide that?"
"Once the computers get control, we might never get it back. We would survive at their sufferance. If we're lucky, they might decide to keep us as pets."
-Marvin Lee Minsky
"If we do it right, we might actually be able to evolve a form of work that taps into our uniquely human capabilities and restores our humanity. The ultimate paradox is that this technology may become the powerful catalyst that we need to reclaim our humanity."
"Artificial intelligence would be the ultimate version of Google. The ultimate search engine that would understand everything on the web. It would understand exactly what you wanted, and it would give you the right thing."
"AI is a fundamental risk to the existence of human civilization."
"Ultimately, AIs will dematerialize, demonetize and democratize all of these services, dramatically improving the quality of life for 8 billion people, pushing us closer towards a world of abundance."
"Humans should be worried about the threat posed by artificial intelligence."
Our mission is to enable broad discussions of our society’s evolution from a human based economic model to a robotic one, to foster broad understanding of that transition’s opportunities and threats, to communicate that understanding to all those who wish to know, and to educate our leaders to give them the knowledge needed during the challenging times ahead.
