In an exclusive interview with CMRubinWorld founder C. M. Rubin, Professor Nick Bostrom at the Future of Humanity Institute, Oxford University in England discusses the threats to the human species in the age of advanced AI and its impact on a relevant education for today’s world.
Smart machines have edged their way into people’s lives in nearly every industry, transforming our societies. Advanced AI has already significantly challenged the brains of humankind. As unprecedented opportunities created by this intelligence continue to grow, so do the ethical, moral and educational challenges for today’s world. Professor Nick Bostrom at Oxford University, who is also a founding Director of the Future of Humanity Institute, identifies threats to the human species in the age of AI and the ways to prevent life-shattering events from occurring. “Superintelligent AI should be developed only for the benefit of all of humanity and in the service of widely shared ethical ideals,” says Bostrom.
In his recent interview with CMRubinWorld founder C M Rubin, Bostrom shared his perspective on the growth of AI and its inevitable impact on the future of education. He believes while AI is moving too fast to integrate new ideas into curriculum, providing “a broader base of computer science education,” including programming, is a good idea.
Nick Bostrom who directs the Governance of Artificial Intelligence Program, is a Professor at Oxford University and a founding Director of the Future of Humanity Institute. He is the author of some 200 publications, including Anthropic Bias (Routledge, 2002), Global Catastrophic Risks (ed., OUP, 2008), Human Enhancement (ed., OUP, 2009), and Superintelligence: Paths, Dangers, Strategies (OUP, 2014), a New York Times bestseller.
