What happens when our computers get smarter than we are? | Nick Bostrom

What happens when our computers get smarter than we are? | Nick Bostrom

Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds — within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as "smart" as a human being. And then, says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: "Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make." A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we're building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will our smart machines help to preserve humanity and our values — or will they have values of their own?

What Is Time? | Professor Sean Carroll explains the theories of Presentism and Eternalism

What Is Time? | Professor Sean Carroll explains the theories of Presentism and Eternalism

What is Time? Tackle one of the greatest problems in all of science—the nature of time itself—in "Mysteries of Modern Physics: Time," a groundbreaking course by Dr. Sean Carroll, one of the foremost researchers in this field. In this second video from the 24-video series, Professor Carroll approaches time from a philosophical perspective. “Presentism” holds that the past and future are not real; only the present moment is real. However, the laws of physics appear to support “eternalism”—the view that all of the moments in the history of the universe are equally real.

You aren't at the mercy of your emotions -- your brain creates them | Lisa Feldman Barrett

You aren't at the mercy of your emotions -- your brain creates them | Lisa Feldman Barrett

Can you look at someone's face and know what they're feeling? Does everyone experience happiness, sadness and anxiety the same way? What are emotions anyway? For the past 25 years, psychology professor Lisa Feldman Barrett has mapped facial expressions, scanned brains and analyzed hundreds of physiology studies to understand what emotions really are. She shares the results of her exhaustive research -- and explains how we may have more control over our emotions than we think.

The Biggest Questions of Cosmology: Pondering the Imponderables

The Biggest Questions of Cosmology: Pondering the Imponderables

PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Is our universe unique or one of many? What happened before the Big Bang? Why is there something rather than nothing? Physicists and cosmologists are closing in on how the universe operates at its very core. But even with powerful telescopes and particle accelerators pushed to their limits, experimenters struggle to keep up as theoreticians march forward, leaving grand theories untested. Some argue that if these deep questions can’t be answered empirically, they’re not relevant to science. Are they right? Join world-leading cosmologists, philosophers and physicists as they tackle the profound questions of existence. PARTICIPANTS: David Z. Albert, George F. R. Ellis, Alan Guth, Veronika Hubeny, Andrei Linde, Barry Loewer MODERATOR: Jim Holt Original program date: JUNE 3, 2017 WATCH THE TRAILER: https://youtu.be/8_dPccRi8kE WATCH THE LIVE Q&A W/ DAVID ALBERT: https://youtu.be/SWEpp_3qbGg MORE INFO ABOUT THE PROGRAM AND PARTICIPANTS: https://www.worldsciencefestival.com/programs/big-universe-bigger-questions/ This program is part of the Big Ideas Series, made possible with support from the John Templeton Foundation. - Subscribe to our YouTube Channel for all the latest from WSF - Visit our Website: http://www.worldsciencefestival.com/ - Like us on Facebook: https://www.facebook.com/worldsciencefestival/ - Follow us on Twitter: https://twitter.com/WorldSciFest TOPICS: - The Biggest Questions of Cosmology 00:05 - Participant Introductions 05:33 - Does eternity relate to infinity? 13:45 - Why is wrong to say the universe has a finite past? 24:15 - The two claims about inflation. 36:54 - Is 3D dimensional space the real space? 47:27 - The "measurement" problem 59:33 This program was recorded live on 6/3/17 and has been edited for our YouTube channel.
