Video presentation at the 2017 APEX workshop (Alumni Professional Exchange). Rob Sen. Self-described “serial entrepreneur” Robi Sen, Chief Technology Officer with the company Department 13, offered attendees a glimpse into the future and implications of autonomous systems and artificial intelligence. Sen traces the history and the future prospects of these systems. Benefits could include fewer accidents, finely tailored personalized medicine, reduced natural resource use, opening of areas for exploration and more leisure time. An equal set of risks also exist. An autonomous power grid, for example, may provide hyper-efficient climate adjustment, but a glitch could result in cascading failure. Already, autonomous commercial ships are sometimes found to be infected by malware, Sen noted. The prospect plugged-in, autonomous automobiles may decrease accidents, but the prospected also stokes fears of a ready-made surveillance state.
