A Podcast From The Jist

22 Nov November

Carrick Flynn from The Future of Humanity Institute was our guest on today's show. The Future of Humanity Institute is run by Nick Bostrom and Carrick is involved in their work on AI (Artificial Intelligence) governance and policy-making. Essentially, that means he is attempting to propose frameworks through which we could safely produce AI for the common good of humanity. We spoke all about the fears and potential for AI and how it could destroy or revolutionise our world.
