Lecture by Susan Schneider. Produced by Talks at Google. Runtime 57 minutes.
Susan Schneider, NASA’s Baruch Blumberg Chair of Astrobiology and director of the AI, Mind, and Society groups at the University of Connecticut, explores pressing philosophical questions about consciousness, selfhood, ethics, and humanity. In this talk — and her book, Artificial You: AI and the Future of Your Mind — Schneider questions whether consciousness is an inevitable byproduct of sophisticated intelligence and considers the risks and promises of creating machine minds.
