Hi <<First Name>>,
I am excited to welcome you tomorrow, and I appreciate the time you’re taking to spend with us thinking about the problems and opportunities in the use of language and communication when working with, or designing for autonomous systems (a collective name for AI, ML, deep learning and the likes).
This will not be a discussion about the future of humanity or if AI will ever develop consciousness. While I love discussing philosophy of the mind–and don’t believe the human brain can be computed–I want to be consciousness of everyone’s time and set an agenda for tomorrow.
7:00 - 7:15 : hello and introduction
7:15 - 7:30 : overview of the report, target audience and current state
7:30 - 7:45 : overview of the current topic list (breakdown below)
7:45 - 8:50: picking the first to start with and allocating 20 mins for it, before moving to the next one
8:50 - 9:00: thank you and next steps
Our current set of topics for Communication and Language is list below:
You can always add more points in the open Google document: https://docs.google.com/document/d/1TEGz_f…
- Premise: language is crucial in newness
- Everyone wants to know the future: hunting for predictions
- Ethical Issues with false definitions
- Avoid the hype (machines can’t be smart)
- Gradients of machine autonomy: the use of language in setting expectations
We still have a couple of seats available via Eventbrite, and I welcome any feedback, comments or ideas.
Wishing you a wonderful Sunday, and please get in touch with any questions.
