Will a computer ever be more creative than a human? In this compelling program, artists, musicians, neuroscientists, and computer scientists explore the future of artistry and imagination in the age of artificial intelligence. Today, there are robots that make art, move like dancers, tell stories, and even help human chefs devise unique recipes. But is …

‘Artificial Intelligence’ or AI has drastically improved the world around us in many different ways. However, there are still many notable concerns with regard to its overall impact on employment all over the globe. Many people have been understandably worried that AI will lead to literally millions of unemployed individuals who might be out on the …

Technological Singularity: the moment when robots reach a level of intelligence that is superior to the current level of human reasonableness or ability to predict the outcomes of unrestrained technological growth. As a consequence, the economic, cultural and political singularity of human civilization follows. And although the singularity is still the subject of many Hollywood films …

Contrary to popular fears about job losses, the World Economic Forum predicts that automation will result in a net increase of 58 million jobs.
