Max’s Talks:

Max Tegmark is driven by curiosity, both about how our universe works and about how we can use the science and technology we discover to help humanity flourish rather than flounder. His  energy and passion for the biggest questions facing humanity leap from the pages of his best-selling books. It’s an infectious enthusiasm that also comes across in his energetic, witty and thought-provoking talks.

His aim is not only to help us understand the dangers presented by A.I., but also its positive potential. In his own words…

“I’m fascinated by A.I. and the future of life. There’s been much talk about A.I. disrupting the job market and enabling new weapons, but very few scientists talk seriously about the elephant in the room: what will happen once machines outsmart us at all tasks? That’s why I wrote [Life 3.0], to help you join the most important conversation of our time.”
