Discussion article for the meetup : Nick Bostrom Talk on Superintelligence

WHEN: 04 September 2014 08:00:00PM (-0400)

WHERE: Emerson 105, Harvard University, Cambridge, MA

What happens when machines surpass humans in general intelligence? Will artificial agents save or destroy us? In his new book - Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies - Professor Bostrom explores these questions, laying the foundation for understanding the future of humanity and intelligent life. Q&A will follow the talk.

(This event is organized by Harvard Effective Altruism. It is not technically a Less Wrong Meetup, but the topic is highly relevant and most of the Boston area rationalist community will be there)

This should be awesome, except for the 2-minute introduction that will be given by this annoying Swedish guy (me). Be there for be square! ;-)
