Flynn Coleman spoke at Plywood Presents 2017 at Atlanta Symphony Hall.
In this talk, Flynn asks us to think about our role in shaping the technology and humanity of the future. As artificial intelligence increasingly becomes a part of human life, how will we interact with it? And are there ways to teach artificial intelligence the characteristics of social and moral good?
