The talk “Humanity’s imprisonment in neural networks” helded at Manege on September 7.
Nowadays, artificial intelligence in the form of neural networks is ubiquitous. Every object, every wish, and every relationship are ceaselessly being analyzed, encoded, and duplicated in virtual reality. When they know everything there is to know about everyone, and every action must be rational, does a person have the latitude to err, to meander aimlessly, or even to do foolish things in daily life?
As we plunge into virtual reality every day, do we still have recourse to all the provisions of real-life laws? Would not their enforcement seem absurd? And, with that in mind, who owns the rights to products generated by artificial neural networks? These are some of the issues we have discussed.
