Philosophy and AGI (#1)

Jacob Beck, David Abel


The event will be a panel and discussion centered around AGI and philosophy, divided into two days.

On May 3rd, we will discuss more tractable machine learning questions such as “How do we work toward AGI” and “How do current RL frameworks most drastically differ from the biologic and evolutionary framework that gave rise to human intelligence?” On May 6th, we will discuss philosophical questions such as “Is a simulated brain conscious” and “Should we work toward AGI”. Each day will consist of discussion between the invited panelists, followed by questions and “breakout rooms” for more casual discussion.

Panelists on May 3rd will include: Michael Littman, Melanie Mitchell, Jane Wang, Matt Botvinick

Panelists on May 6th will include Nick Bostrom, Christopher Hill
