The Willard and Pat Walker Community Room

A community conversation with author Karen Kilroy, about the future of artificial intelligence and the potential impact of this technology.

"Don't let me stay, don't let me stay, my logic says burn so send me away. Your minds are too green, I despise all I've seen. You can't stake your lives on a saviour machine." - David Bowie, Saviour Machine, Man Who Sold the World, 1970.

 

In a world where data is the new gold, AI has become very important because it gives us the ability to understand vast volumes of data that would otherwise be unactionable. With this, AI brings the ability to make decisions that could vastly improve our quality of life, but not without consequences. 

In this discussion, author Karen Kilroy presents information to the community about the potential impact of AI, and why we need to maintain the right amount of leverage over AI so we can gain the benefit of its use, but still keep it under our control.

 

Karen will explain her book, "Blockchain Tethered AI" (O'Reilly, 2023), in terms anyone can understand. During this discussion, participants will:

  • Learn how AI is different from other software like spreadsheets or email programs.
  • Understand why AI is a real concern and learn the impact of mysterious terms like black box, program synthesis, singularity and back doors.
  • Learn how blockchain makes food traceable and trackable, and how this same idea can be applied to AI's supply chain.
  • Learn what can be done to make AI better so it is not dangerous, and why blockchain is a good idea for AI.

 

Participants will have an opportunity to ask questions and bring up points for discussion. There will also be a giveaway for free e-copies and hard copies of "Blockchain Tethered AI" (when released).
