Artificial intelligence is growing at an astounding rate, but are we ready for the consequences? Cosmologist and MIT physics professor Max Tegmark guides us through the state of artificial intelligence today, and the many paths we might take in further developing this technology. Neil deGrasse Tyson, who is Frederick P. Rose Director of the Hayden Planetarium, moderates, with an introduction by Ward Wheeler, curator in the Division of Invertebrate Zoology at the American Museum of Natural History.


This Frontiers Lecture took place in the Museum’s Hayden Planetarium on January 8, 2018.
