How will Artificial Intelligence affect crime, war, justice, jobs, society and our very sense of being human?
The rise of AI has the potential to transform our future more than any other technology—and there’s nobody better qualified or situated to explore that future than Max Tegmark, an MIT professor who’s helped mainstream research on how to keep AI beneficial.
Max Tegmark, Professor, MIT
A native of Sweden, Tegmark earned his Ph.D. in physics at Berkeley in 1994. He then worked as a research associate at the Max-Planck-Institut für Physik in Munich, as a Hubble Fellow and member of the Institute for Advanced Study in Princeton, and as faculty at the University of Pennsylvania before joining MIT in 2004. Tegmark’s research has focused on cosmology theory and phenomenology but has also included diverse topics such as interpretations of quantum mechanics, predictions of inflation, and parallel universes.
