Future of Work: AI – with @benjaminellis

This was the first of a series of evenings at Truphone looking at the future of work in the context of four currently maturing technologies.  We started off with a focus on Artificial Intelligence and were given a great overview by Benjamin Ellis of Redcatco.

Discussions that followed included:

  • What happens when the AI is wrong?
    Social Machines (where/how/what)
  • The social acceptability of AI decisions, even if they are better than human ones
  • I want IRON MAN’s suit!
  • AI & Regulation Self/Gov
  • Are we driving AI… or does it drive us?
  • Why AI? Are we creating stuff because we can or because it adds to the human condition or…?
  • UIs How do we talk to them and them to us? How do they sell their ideas? Spectrum from Sound Hound to C3PO to HAL
  • If a machine/AI does something bad (kills someone) who is responsible? The owner, the manufacturer, the programmer or the victim?
  • What will we be using AI for in the next few years? What can I use it for now?
  • Is AI artificial ie not human?

We finish each evening with a circle where we pass around an audio recorder to capture people’s immediate reactions.  Have a listen to get more of a feel for what it was like in the room.

David Terrar did a write up for the Agile Elephant Blog.  If you were there and have written anything yourself, do let me know and I’ll add a link.
