Human or Machine: A plus B minus C (Fast Forward audio series)

Presented by

Ken Hollings

About this talk

Set in the haunted Victorian parlor, we look at a famous test for machine intelligence from that era and its implications today. A machine, legendary code-breaker Alan Turing argued, might be intelligent if it can lie convincingly. Presenter Ken Hollings suggests a machine must learn on its own terms how to fool us, and Eric Drass, aka the artist Shardcore, says we should reconsider what we mean by intelligence. Kaspersky security researcher David Emm recommends cautions we should be taking as chatbots get empathetic. Technology author James Bridle describes how effectively AI can be trained to develop traits that seem concerningly human and considers whether we’re on the right track.
