Reforming Civilization with AI


Since the birth of civilization, humanity has experienced stages of rapid growth and expansion. After each ‘revolution’ we have lived longer, healthier, and more fulfilling lives. Now, we are on the brink of another revolution and Artificial Intelligence is at its core. How must we prepare and what changes will this transformation bring? Shalev Lifshitz, one of the youngest AI researchers in the world, is currently working on a breakthrough that will pave the way towards a new AI era. He will showcase how AI is driving this revolution and disrupting our industries. Shalev will also outline the work being done to achieve AI with human-level intelligence. When might we reach that point, what will it look like, and what can we do to prepare? Will humans remain the only intelligent species?
