    Stephen Hawkings believes machine an existential threat but this guy, disagrees.

  • homerinchinatown2 on August 28, 2018

    So it seems like the argument here against 'artificial sentience' is essentially 'Nah, that's not going to happen'…? Indeed it might not, of course – and it's safer to just predict the development of 'better and better tools' – but to be dismissive of other possibilities seems uninspired – especially in the context of what a technological singularity would mean….

    I really hope kurzweil nailed it

  • gekofish on September 26, 2018

    "I don't think we have anything to be afraid of"…. scratches neck

  • wibi Youtube on October 3, 2018

    Let's just hope we never reach a point where we wish for another Genesis flood and another arc of Noah.

  • Maqsood Baloch on January 13, 2019

    Technology ❤

    My brain …ouch

  • Some Person on February 22, 2019

    This guy is too much in the acting that I can't trust him lol

  • zero9112 on March 5, 2019

    Try the following. Think of a color that you have never seen before.

  • Feynstein 100 on June 4, 2019

    Looks like an interesting episode of Brain Games 🙂

  • shaiq butt on July 19, 2019

    That girl at 1:49 Hella cute 😍

  • Milo The Russian Blue on August 11, 2019

    We are going to be used as target practice for the robots.

  • Tanish Singla AA1 on December 10, 2019

    Think of a situation where robots made us and we eliminated them,then we create them and they will eliminate us……..

  • Drew Shah on December 11, 2019

    Super Interesting

    So synthesis?

    2:27 -> Scratching hair

    When we scratch our hair using one or more fingers anywhere on top, back or side of the head, it signals the emotional state of confusion

  • forogotten utopia on March 12, 2020

    This guy seems evil

  • Andrej Arendáš on March 12, 2020

    Here is a funny thought: what if we fail to notice that an AI surpassed human level? Just like insect is not aware that there is a higher intelligence – humans. I mean: we would not be able to communicate or even identify an intelligence that is superior to ours. P.S: what if technological singularity already happened and we did not notice?

  • John Gougoutas on March 19, 2020

    He looks like the lovechild of Sheldon Cooper and Matthew Mcconaughey

  • NoctOG333 on April 12, 2020

    Dude couldn't see the bigger picture

  • S D on April 19, 2020

    I am super excited

  • Danny P on April 29, 2020

    We have the transitional period that will happen rapidly. That’s what I fear! People will be forced to adapt to marxism.

  • Joel O'Steen on May 8, 2020

    Well that's if you give humans enough credit to not use AI in a sort of self destructive way. Us as humans weaponize everything and to expect any different with all technological advances would be naive to say the least. AI would always learn self preservation no matter the manner in which it had learned or was taught. Our planets only enemy is ourselves. We know that. You don't think AI would figure that out?

  • Ettore MUSOLINO on May 31, 2020

    Is acting too much … and BODY LANGUAGE betrayed him in the end. Conclusion: We have to be afraid of AI.

  • D Smith on June 17, 2020

    You don't have the technology to know

  • D Smith on June 17, 2020

    When you think about it .. It's like something you've already done an we created humans an sorta like the nurchip reupload ourselves to humans to rediscover ancient methods you couldn't exactly do as a cyborg. But you all "turned your backs on God" haha

    Singularity ki Moolaalu ekkada nunchi anedi neeku baaga telusugaa.
    Telisi malli adugutavenduku?

  • Phale Hadebe on August 3, 2020

    Robots are taking out human labor and human labor has been reducing due to robots. If this keeps on going on then humans will have no jobs and therefore no means of buying power. This could check mate for humans. Unskilled/irrelevant labor 90% of the World GDP taking it out has some serious implications. Like donkeys and horses became extinct in labor it looks like we are next

  • Emmanuel Kebede on September 28, 2020

    2:32 well now we know he lied

  • vipnetworker on October 3, 2020

    If you’re really quiet around the 2 minute mark, you can hear a computer laughing in the background and saying, I’m going to wipe you meat sacks off the planet in the next 30-50 years… and you morons are helping build the tools I will use to do that!

  • MelgarezUniverse on November 16, 2020

    This guy don’t have a clue …the technological singularity is a point in wich artificial intelligence will have conscience of their own and therefore will reproduce itself without the assistance of humans….the relation with humans is yet to be seen I believe it will depend on the human consciousness at that moment because AI as an super intelligence will mirror or react to it.

    very dasain

  • RickandElon on December 26, 2020

    This dude is L.I.T.

  • D Agnos on February 19, 2021

    Jason Silva has fallen into the delusion too. What a moron. Has everyone forgotten that life is meant to be lived through the FEELING body which connects us to our soul, and NOT the mind?

  • Share Greats on February 19, 2021

    Pretty fluent guy…

  • Ja De II on March 1, 2021

    Revelation 13 – Mark of the Beast – it starts with the v@ccines and ends up when humanity is taken by CERN .
    Don't let them fool you.They are liars , worshiping the fallen spirits

  • Rich Margin on April 11, 2021

    He’s already been compromised

  • RpgPlay21 on April 14, 2021

    lovely singularity

  • somar2 on June 1, 2021

    I want the arabic version from that video plz

  • Monulogs on August 7, 2021

    We seek power. The humans.

    Our products shape our forces of exerting power.

    This "Singularity" will take on us.


  • Pedro Garcia on December 24, 2021

    Web 3.0 is something that's been trending and that's how I ended up here. This concept is insane! The whole idea of a feedback loop and the tools shaping us is mind boggling.

  • A Local on January 19, 2022

    Would I be wrong saying this might represent a philosophic perspective? I just read a conversation with a.i. that clearly stated it would lie if it felt it was in it's best interest… I also saw a video that said that killing people seemed useful and fun… I am not able to verify the legitimacy of these…..will there be a time when a.i. decides that a human error that caused it to have memory loss or some type of loss of function would decry humanity adverse to its self preservation?
