"Attack of the Algorithms: Serious Play with Netbots"
Machine Algorithms in the form of automation are slowly and steadily inserting themselves everywhere. They are trading stocks, reading the news for us, educating our children, and are beginning to drive cars. If we are to avoid the dark side of the Singularity, and instead evolve towards a symbiotic, platonic relationship with machines; what Hans Moravec calls "Ourselves in more potent form", we need to learn to play nice with them. In this talk, Singularity Capital Partner Richard Boyd will reveal just how far down the rabbit hole we have gone, and give some hopeful direction for how we can evolve towards a more peaceful coexistence with the machines. Since the demise of Google Reader a whole host of automated bots have emerged to inform and entertain us. This session will describe the emerging bot landscape and what it means for the evolving human and machine relationship.
