Artificial Intelligence Will Kill Us All, Writer And Speaker Says

Jul 15, 2019

"There is no guarantee that we will always be Darwin’s Darling." That’s the conclusion of writer and speaker Jay Tuck, the prolific author and journalist who warns that artificial intelligence could end up being the death of humanity as we know it.

He brings his ominous message to the Antioch College Summer Institute: AI Symposium on Monday afternoon at the Eichelberg Forum Main Stage of the Dayton Metro Library. The 1968 Antioch graduate is also described as a U.S. Defense expert and, in a YouTube video of his TedX talk on AI, which has garnered more than 2.7 million views, Tuck speaks of how large tech corporations, U.S. defense contractors, and the U.S. government work together on the creation of robots that could prove to be problematic for all sides of conflicts down the road.

Tuck says AI’s challenges are not a dream of science fiction, but rather that it is here now, changing the world at breathtaking speed.

Tuck (@AirtimeDubai) joins Cincinnati Edition to explain why he sees AI as a threat, and talks about whether it's already too late to do anything about it.

Listen to Cincinnati Edition live at noon M-F. Audio for this segment will be uploaded after 4 p.m. ET.
