Charles J. Simon, Founder and CEO of FutureAI, is speaking on "Ethics and Artificial General Intelligence (AGI)" at the IEEE International Symposium on Technology and Society (ISTAS'19), the flagship event for IEEE Society for Social Implications (SSIT).  The event is in Boston, MA on November 15-16, hosted by Tufts University School of Engineering, on its Medford Campus.  ISTAS is an interdisciplinary forum for policy makers, entrepreneurs, technologists and engineers to collaborate and discuss the implications of technology.

One technology is Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), the creation of computers which exceed human intelligence. While most view AGI in terms of its representation in movies, pop culture, and media, and view it as a far-off fantasy, AGI is, in fact, right around the corner. AGI's development raises a number of ethical questions that have an immediate need to be addressed: Will AGI become smarter than humans? Will AGI replace humans in the workforce, and how do we combat the possible rise in unemployment? Will we eventually lose control of the technology? And most importantly, will computers revolt?
