Show Notes

This is an interview with Dr. Yoshua Bengio, Turing Award Winner and Scientific Director of the Montreal Institute for Learning Algorithms.

This is the first episode in a 5-part series about "AGI Destinations" - where we unpack the preferable and non-preferable futures humanity might strive towards in the years ahead.

There three main questions we'll be covering on the Trajectory:

1. Who are the power players in AGI and what are their incentives?

2. What kind of posthuman future are we moving towards, or should we be moving towards?

3. What should we do about it?

If this sounds like it's up your alley, I'm glad to have you here.
