As we step in the age of AI, the question of ethics remains hanging in the middle. How will mankind deal with this conflict (if there is any?) between Artificial Intelligence and Human Intellect while also dealing with the moral and ethical domains of mankind’s existence. This SSE Public Lecture invites the mind to think and question these issues and ponder upon what could be the most important question of our time as we stand on the cusp of a new era of human-designed intelligence, which could possibly outpace its creators.
