Many scientists have predicted that humanity will achieve Artificial General Intelligence within the next hundred years. After summarizing the arguments for why AGI may pose significant risk, UofL's Dr. Roman Yampolskiy will survey the field’s proposed responses.

Dr. Roman V. Yampolskiy is an Associate Professor in the department of Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the JB Speed School of Engineering, University of Louisville.
