Doctoral Consortium | The Dark Side of AI: Martin Ford

AI is a uniquely powerful technology altering every dimension of human life, often for the better. For example, advanced science is being done by machines, solving devilish problems in molecular biology that humans could not, and AI can help us fight climate change or the next pandemic. It also has a capacity for profound harm. AI will have an enormous impact on the job market. Deep fakes—AI-generated audio or video of events that never happened—are poised to cause havoc throughout society. AI empowers authoritarian regimes. And AI can be deeply biased, learning bigoted attitudes from us and perpetuating them.

Martin Ford is the author of two best-selling books on the dark side of AI, The Rise of the Robots: Technology and the Threat of a Jobless Future, and The Rule of the Robots: How AI Will Transform Everything
