I came across Peter during one of his talks in London, and reached out for a conversation about how we can ratify our thinking about an uncertain future that is merged with machines.
We had a wide ranging talk that covered Narrow, General and Super Intelligent AI, Consciousness, Human-machine augmentation and the dangers of AI and the dangers of a human power processing and wielding advanced AI.
