The 6 Ted Talks that will change how you perceive AI dominance

Thanks to Hollywood, we are constantly being fed the idea of machines growing so smart that they are taking over the world! Seeing how far we’ve come, this idea is legitimate. Somewhat. It’s true that technology is advancing so fast and we are in a world where machines keep getting smarter. In fact, some machines even exceeded the human brain, especially in board games. But that’s the thing, it’s more about optimized memory and patterns and less about intuition and thinking. Don’t take my word for it, take the experts’. Here are 6 Ted talks that will show you how far we are from a world dominated by machines.

1. Garry Kasparov - Don’t fear intelligent machines, work with them

2. Nick Bostrom - What happens when our computers get smarter than we are.

3. Anthony Goldbloom - The jobs we’ll lose to machines and the ones we won’t

4. Sam Harris - Can we build AI without losing control over it?

5. Grady Booch - Don’t fear superintelligence

6. Kevin Kelly - How AI can bring on a second Industrial Revolution.
