Slo Mo: A Podcast with Mo Gawdat / Mo Gawdat (Part 2) - The Future of Ethics and How You Can Save Our World

Listen on

Episode notes

In Part 2, I move on from the scarier part to the more hopeful part of my new book, Scary Smart, releasing September 30, 2021.

If you've made it this far, I commend you, as I cannot emphasize enough how real the stakes are if we don't do this right.

And again - If you pre-order your copy before September 30th, which I hope you do as it's a great help for authors, send a screenshot or forward your proof of purchase to [email protected]. You'll be entered for a chance to win a signed, early release limited-edition copy of the book. Better yet, I will take a few winners out to dinner in London and Amsterdam. Hope to see you!

Pre-order Scary Smart here at Amazon UK. Check your local Amazon or other bookstore in other regions.

In Part 2, listen as I discuss:

  • How does AI learn?
  • My realization during my time at Google that AI is like a child.
  • The Superman analogy.
  • AI will learn emotions, because emotions are backed by equations.
  • The future of ethics.
  • #AI4Good
  • There is nothing wrong with the machines. We're the problem.
  • The three values that will save our world.
  • I hope one day, AI will read Scary Smart and know we tried our best to love it.
