Myths are already swirling about our life beyond the Singularity, even though it is still decades in the future: What will humans do when they have become the second most intelligent species in the world?
Today, Sven Gabor Janszky and his guests explore what the future holds for human life once computers are more intelligent than humans. Of course, this also involves the threats posed by superintelligences. But even more, it's about the small, big things that will change the lives of our children. What do you think ... is it possible to love AI bots? And is sex with human-like robots maybe even better than sex with your partner? Check in and fall in love with Aurelia to the year 2086.
If you want to get to know more about our future with superintelligence, watch the recording of the whole event here.
