Gods of Artificial Intelligence

 

'What is software? Is it a form of life? If so, how will it evolve? Will it be as friendly towards us as we are towards other living creatures? Hopefully not.'

In the upcoming decades, artificial intelligence will radically change our world. Economy, politics, art, media, in short: being a human will entirely transform. 

This means we have to rethink ourselves and our position in the universe. This may sound a little bombastic, but that's a good thing. Big changes ask for big stories. 

In this presentation we reflect on the history of life and (programming) languages to get a grip on our artificial future. 

'Maybe some day, artificial intelligence will create a religion for us humans, its' Holy Creator.'
