EXPLORE THE FUTURE WITH BLAISE!
Although we talked a lot about technology with Blaise on this episode of Humans of SDU, he made it sound almost human and surely understandable. Since he works as an AI consultant, we peeked into our future a bit and sketched some possible scenarios for the cohabitation of humans and robots.
- How far are we from being controlled by AI?
- How does Blaise personally perceive that he works on something so unpredictable and potentially powerful?
- Is it possible to develop systems that will behave within the boundaries of expectation?
How did we find Blaise?
Watch out – this story is a bit R-rated. Miška met Blaise in a truly unusual setting – at a strip show that they both attended (together with another future guest Justin! A truly fateful night for Humans of SDU). Blaise shared some really funny stories that night and also showed his great conversational skills. So when the time came to interview some awesome alumni for Humans of SDU, Blaise was an obvious choice.
But we were also in for a surprise when we interviewed Blaise! Apart from a fascinating – and to be honest, a little scary – conversation about artificial intelligence and its possibilities and dangers, we also got a little scoop. Blaise revealed that he actually got married this summer! So not only did we get to learn about the future of the human race, but we also got to congratulate him. Being introduced to Blaise was absolutely worth it – so listen to his episode of Humans of SDU to get to know him, too!
