Silicon Valley has pitched A.G.I.—or Artificial General Intelligence—as a solution to the world's problems; all we need to do is to make it safe and mitigate its risks. And, of course, to build it: it doesn't yet exist. Yet, Silicon Valley gets it wrong: even the safer version of A.G.I. is not desirable, for it will amplify already neoliberal trends while posing a threat to democracy and public reason. In conversation with Vienna Humanities Festival co-founder DESSY GAVRILOVA, the award-winning author and leading thinker on technology, policy and society EVGENY MOROZOV will explain why.
Evgeny Morozov is the author of several award-winning books about technology and politics and, most recently, the producer and host of The Santiago Boys, a podcast about Salvador Allende's technological legacy. He is also the founder and publisher of The Syllabus, a knowledge discovery platform.
