The Second Intelligent Species

Marshall Brain

Right now we know of exactly one intelligent species in the universe and it is us: human beings. We currently see no evidence of any kind indicating that extraterrestrials exist outside of our solar system.

But at this moment, millions of engineers, scientists, corporations, universities and entrepreneurs are racing to create the second intelligent species here on planet earth. And we can see the second intelligent species coming from all directions in the form of self-driving cars, automated call centers, chess-playing and Jeopardy-playing computers, airport kiosks, restaurant tablet systems, etc. These robots will soon be eliminating human jobs in startling numbers.

This talk offers a unique and fascinating look at the future of the human race and the choices we can make.
