Enhanced humanity in a disrupted future



Humberto Schwab in Venture Café Rotterdam on how to realize the Symposium of Plato.

What is artificial intelligence? Should we not first carefully assess what intelligence is? Do we have an adequate model or do we miss important aspects of our vision on humans? Should we impose the “Superman” route of the Silicons, or rather an appeal to embrace the embodied mind as a next step in the Renaissance project of human emancipation?

Do we not copy the least exciting part of humanity with the robot?
The robot forces us into a new project; if there is no more work, then we can learn as if it is a desirable and lustful activity.
