One of the many worrying aspects of the Brexit referendum in the UK and the Trumpularity in the US is that most politicians are not yet talking about the challenges posed by the coming impact of powerful artificial intelligence. This needs to change.
A conversation I had recently with George Osborne (until recently the UK’s Chancellor of the Exchequer) gives grounds for hope.
The video below (16 minutes) contains excerpts from a recent panel discussion called “Ask Me Anything About the Future”. Hosted by Bloomberg, it was organised by Force Over Mass, an early-stage investment fund manager. It was very ably chaired by David Wood, who runs the London Futurists meetup group.
The video of the whole event (1hr 39 mins) is here.
