TEDx Cortina: Unlocking the AI Mirror


As the debate on hashtagAI is raging…. our identity is somehow under threat.
Are we just machines – about to be overcome – or is there something more to the human experience?

As AI advances, many are grappling with existential questions about our purpose and value in the face of intelligent technology.

This thought-provoking TEDxCortina talk explores the profound implications of AI’s growing capabilities, which now rival human skills in areas like strategy, creativity, and intuition. The author reflects on their own journey into AI research, driven by deep questions about the nature of intelligence and consciousness.

The core dilemma posed is: If machines can now think like us, what makes us special? Is there a “something else” that defines the human essence beyond our biological functions? Or are we simply biological machines destined to be surpassed by our AI creations?

These are the kinds of questions that will only become more urgent as AI continues to advance. Rather than fearing obsolescence, this is an opportunity to rediscover our unique value and purpose. By embracing our humanity in the age of intelligent machines, we may uncover profound truths about what it means to be human.

What are your thoughts on this? I’d be curious to hear your perspective on the implications of AI for the human experience
