Savinien Caracostea and Nicholas Gervasi essay “Towards a Communal Afterlife” published in CLOG x Artificial Intelligence.

“Artificial Intelligence—in particular the so-called “narrow” form of AI that has already surpassed human capabilities when it comes to specific tasks—is a ubiquitous, trusted part of our lives. But at the same time, AI is a topic that often elicits more questions than answers. Even defining “Artificial Intelligence” is no simple matter. In practice, AI today takes many forms, ranging from consumer-oriented primary points of interaction (AlphaGo, Alexa, Siri, etc.) to high-profile super-machines (DeepMind and Watson), to unseen scripts and bots operating behind the scenes. 

CLOG x ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE will critically examine AI from its earliest speculations to its future...and ours.”
