ENGINEERING SAFE AI: ROBERT MILES SPEAKS
29th January, 19:00 - 20:30
Hughes Hall, University of Cambridge
Many experts believe that humanity will likely develop machines more intelligent than ourselves during the 21st century. This could lead to rapid improvements in human welfare, but could also cause disastrous outcomes and could even be an existential risk. AI safety research is a small but growing field, devoted to foreseeing the problems AI might pose and working out ways to ensure AI developments are safe and beneficial. We are starting a new series of AI safety meetups! For our launch event, Robert Miles, known from Computerphile and his own YouTube channel, will talk to us about why the AI safety problem is so important and some of the progress that has been made.

CWIC 2020: AT THE EDGE
Wellcome Genome Campus
The world is at the edge of great change, with new technologies offering radically different operating models to businesses. The processing capacity of both low-power devices and data centres has increased dramatically over the past decade, and rapid, high-bandwidth connectivity means that consumers no longer notice where or what is processing their demands. They just know that their needs are being met more quickly and in a more personalised way than ever before. And they hope more than trust that it is being done in a secure, sustainable manner.
