Artificial Intelligence Today and Tomorrow: A Debate on Societal Impact
Michal Pěchouček will introduce the discussion with a short outline of the current state of artificial intelligence, attempting to dispel fears of the domination of humanity by AI while at the same time explaining why it is dangerous to underestimate the speed and scale of societal changes that it brings in terms of unexpected opportunities and real threats. Michal Pěchouček will also explain why – although he agrees with the reasons that led top names in AI science and technology to formulate a call for a temporary halt to the training of large-scale AI models – he did not put his own signature to the petition.
