Barack Obama on Artificial Intelligence, Autonomous Cars, and the Future of Humanityby Jessica Ho
Hey guys! I'm Jessica Ho, another fellow "Envision-ary" (Envision-ist?), and I'm super thrilled to meet everyone next month. In the meantime, check out this article on President Obama's conversation with Joi Ito, director of the MIT Media Lab. The two discuss the social and political implications of generalized AI (along with fun asides about Star Trek and The Martian). It's a short read and will help get you thinking about all the potentially disruptive effects (both positive and negative) of rapidly developing AI - I highly recommend it!
"Ito: But they underestimate the difficulties, and I feel like this is the year that artificial intelligence becomes more than just a computer science problem. IT’S HARD TO think of a single technology that will shape our world more in the next 50 years than artificial intelligence."

by Gerry Wan
Hi everyone! My name is Gerry Wan, one of the coordinators for Envision 2016. This Commonlounge community is a place for you to discuss anything related to Envision that you might find interesting, whether it is recent nanotech news, your thoughts on an AI future, book recommendations, etc. We encourage you discuss and even join other communities you might find interesting! That being said, this platform can also be used to coordinate travel to and from the conference. Feel free to let others know where you’ll be coming from and include it in the Travel channel. Again, congratulations and we’re excited to see all of you on December 2nd!
