TRANSHUMANISM with Peter Xing, a Chinese Transhumanist in Australia.
When one hears the word transhumanism, what is it that comes to mind? Transcending what are thought to be our biological limitations is something that has been both a topic of interest and debate for decades. With the rapid acceleration of artificial intelligence, we have feared that we may become obsolete in various ways.
However, the research in transhumanism has looked into such topics in addition to looking for ways for us to transcend our limitations were the shadow of artificial intelligence will no longer hover over us.
Peter Xing, Ted X speaker and advisory committee of singularity university in Australia has looked into such matters and shares his knowledge with us on transhumanistic development
ARTIFICAL INTELLIGENCE, with Antonio Fowl Stark, a Korean Artificial Intelligence Specialist in Taiwan.
Artificial intelligence is slowly seeping its way into every facet of our lives, from the mobile phones (google home, iRobot, Philips Hue lamps, etc) we use to the Ubers we’re taking, yet most people only have the faintest idea of what it is and its implications.
What is artificial intelligence, exactly? How is it different from human intelligence? How can it affect our lives, both now and in the future?
In this episode, Suzette Lyn pursues answers to these fundamental questions and more in an in-depth interview with AI specialist Antonio Fowl Stark.
