We have built a form of artificial intelligence, and we depend on it in many ways, but we do not yet know how to trust it. The key to addressing our social anxieties about intelligent machines is to understand how they “think”, what we can expect of them, and what can be the consequences of the specific type of intelligence they exhibit, particularly in the specific position we have chosen for them in our global data infrastructure.
This talk will examine the steps that took us to the present form of AI, what we can expect from it, and how we can manage our relation with it, including its legal regulation.
