6. We are not afraid enough of artificial intelligence

About the episode

In the sixth episode of “Polder in de Fik” we delve deeper into the world of artificial intelligence, entitled “Fear of AI.” As technology continues to develop, fear of the impact of artificial intelligence on our daily lives is growing. In this episode, we explore concerns about how AI could threaten our jobs, cause mass unemployment, and even lead to war between humanity and AI.

We explore how AI can not only be a boon by improving our daily lives, but also how it can create fear of takeover, and other potentially devastating consequences of AI. Scientists Jaren Eske and Hans Boutilier from VU University Amsterdam share their insights on this matter. Using examples from education, healthcare and banking, they discuss the extent to which AI is slowly but surely finding its way into all aspects of our existence and explain the fear of AI.
