Join this year’s Turing Prize winner Yann LeCun and other pioneers in artificial intelligence for a no-nonsense discussion of whether a truly intelligent machine can be created—and, if so, how and when. The "thinking machines" that Alan Turing postulated in 1950 have already vaulted beyond us in specific arenas like chess, Go, and Jeopardy. But if we achieve artificial general intelligence, it may take only seconds for our creation to surpass us in every other arena as well. Will humans fight to the end, seeking to restrain such super intelligence, or join forces with a power never before encountered, perhaps bringing about a new utopia? Or, will we simply and quietly become irrelevant? The field’s leading thinkers will debate and discuss the engineering and the ethics required to make room for machines.
