Description

Max Tegmark, Professor, MIT; Co-Founder, the Future of Life Institute

What has artificial intelligence (AI) brought us? Where will it lead us? The story of AI is the story of intelligence—of life processes as they evolve from bacteria to humans, where life processes define their own software, to technology, where life processes design both their hardware and software. We know that AI is transforming work, laws and weapons as well as the dark side of computing (hacking and viral sabotage), raising important questions.

A native of Stockholm, Max Tegmark left Sweden in 1990 after receiving his bachelor of science in physics from the Royal Institute of Technology. He studied physics at the University of California, Berkeley, earning his master’s in 1992 and his Ph.D. in 1994. Tegmark is the author of more than two hundred technical papers, and he has been featured in dozens of science documentaries. He has received numerous awards for his research, including a Packard Fellowship, the Cottrell Scholar Award and a National Science Foundation CAREER award. He is a fellow of the American Physical Society. His work with the Sloan Digital Sky Survey (SDSS) collaboration on galaxy clustering shared the first prize in Science magazine’s Breakthrough of the Year in 2003.
