**This talk includes a copy of Rohit Talwar's new book Beyond Genuine Stupidity.

This presentation draws on a new book by Rohit and his colleagues at Fast Future that explores critical emerging issues arising from the rapid pace of development in artificial intelligence (AI).

Rohit argues for a forward-looking and conscious approach to the development and deployment of AI to ensure that it genuinely serves humanity's best interest. In this fast-paced and inspiring talk, Rohit will present a compelling case to get beyond the genuine stupidity of narrow, short-term, and alarmist thinking and look at AI from a long-term holistic perspective.

The reality is that AI will impact current sectors and jobs—and hope...fully enable new ones.

Key topics to be covered will include:

• Seven Steps to Enlightenment — Key stages in the evolution of AI from Expert Systems to Superintelligence and The Singularity
• A Rapidly Changing Reality — Likely future developments in the application of AI over the next 20 years
• From Tedious to Transformative — How AI is currently being deployed
• Addressing the Human impacts of AI— Cultural and ethical challenges, rethinking education systems, reskilling the workforce, unemployment and guaranteed basic incomes, and dealing with the mental health impacts
• Preparing for the AI Economy – International competition, robot taxes, nationalisation of AI, job creation, research and development for tomorrow’s sectors, encouraging new ventures and the post-AI economy.
