The promise and threat of artificial intelligence

Some of the world’s brightest minds are very concerned with the development of AI technology. The rise of intelligent machines poses a grave threat to humanity, they say. Others view artificial intelligence as purely positive and soon to be as ubiquitous as electricity. We discuss how artificial intelligence might change the world as we know it.

Guests in the studio: Theo Kanter and Kristina Nilsson Björkenstam, Stockholm University, Christian Smith KTH.

On Skype: Jürgen Schmidhuber, Professor in Artificial Intelligence, Scientific director at the Swiss AI Lab IDSIA
