GENERAL ADMISSION SEATING / FREE
Will superintelligent computers hundreds of times smarter than humans help us solve difficult problems such as the causes of cancer or climate change, or will they decide we're all just raw materials they need to consume in order to expand? Will industrial robots free us from mundane and poor-paying factory jobs, or will they displace workers and trigger a world-wide depression?
These are the types of questions to be discussed at an upcoming technology summit at Purdue, "Dawn or Doom: The New Technology Explosion." The Sept. 18 event will explore whether technology is advancing faster than our ability to understand, regulate or control it, and what can be done about this situation.
