    Tobay Walsh on "How can you stop killer robots" at TEDxBerlin (http://www.tedxberlin.de)

    Toby Walsh is one of the leading researchers in the world in Artificial Intelligence.

    He is currently working in Berlin thanks to a Humboldt Research award. He is a Professor of Artificial Intelligence at the University of New South Wales back in Sydney, Australia, and a Research Group leader at NICTA, Australia's Centre of Excellence for ICT Research. He has been elected a fellow of the Association for the Advancement of AI for his contributions to AI research.

    Earlier this year, he was one of the initial signatories of an Open Letter calling for a ban on offensive autonomous weapons. The letter was also signed by Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Steve Wozniak. In total, the letter now has close to 20,000 signatures and has pushed this issue into the world's spotlight. The letter argues that we need to take action today to prevent an arms race in which these lethal autonomous weapons fall into the hands of terrorists and rogue nations.

    This talk was given at a TEDx event using the TED conference format but independently organized by a local community. Learn more at http://ted.com/tedx

Are Robots Really The Answer?
  • Description

    As artificial intelligence and robotics becomes more prevalent in our daily lives, Oxford university researchers have estimated that that 47% of today’s jobs will become irrelevant. In this session, we examine how robotics can affect our livelihood and what policies are needed for humans to prosper in the new age of robots.

    Andrew Keen is an author and commentator on the digital revolution. He is executive director of the Silicon Valley innovation salonFutureCast. In 2015, he was named by GQ magazine in their list of the "100 Most Connected Men”.
