Robin Hanson - After The Dreamtime: The Science of Brain Emulation Societies

The three most disruptive transitions in history were the introduction of humans, farming, and industry. If another transition lies ahead, a good guess for its source is artificial intelligence in the form of whole brain emulations, or “ems,” sometime in the next century. I apply standard academic consensus science, including social science, to this unusual situation, to outline a baseline scenario set modestly far into a post-em-transition world. I consider families, reproduction, mating, cities, finance, training, careers, management, identity, talk, culture, security, inequality, life plans, daily activities, property rights, industrial organization, and governance.

  • For planning purposes, please RSVP through this Eventbrite invitation so we can arrange to have enough food.
  • Please enter the building through the Bryant Street entrance (large Quixey logo visible).

Parking: During lunchtime, parking in downtown Mountain View is sparse. We recommend parking in one of the three city lots (marked below in red): Bryant and Villa St. Deck, Bryant and California St. Deck or the Franklin and Villa gravel lot. You will want to enter through Bryant St.
