How Dangerous is Artificial Superintelligence?

Feb 5, 2022 · London, United Kingdom

Researchers around the world are developing methods to enhance the safety, security, explainability, and beneficiality of "narrow" artificial intelligence. How well will these methods transfer into the forthcoming field of artificial superintelligence (ASI)? Or will ASI pose radically new challenges that will require a different set of solutions? Indeed, what hope is there for human designers to keep control of ASI when it emerges? Or is the subordination of humans to this new force inevitable?

These are some of the questions to be addressed in this London Futurists webinar by Roman Yampolskiy, Professor of Computer Science at the University of Louisville. Dr. Yampolskiy is the author of the book "Artificial Superintelligence: A Futuristic Approach" and the editor of the book "Artificial Intelligence Safety and Security". Dr. Yampolskiy will also be answering audience questions about his projects and research.


This event will be hosted on Zoom. To register, visit

The Zoom registration fee (UKP £2.50) helps cover London Futurists running costs. (The Zoom registration page opens a PayPal interface, but there is NO requirement for attendees to use a PayPal account.)

The webinar can also be viewed, without charge, on the London Futurists YouTube channel, but without the option to participate in the live Q&A.


Dr. Roman V. Yampolskiy is a Tenured Associate Professor in the department of Computer Engineering and Computer Science at the Speed School of Engineering, University of Louisville. He is also the founding and current director of the Cyber Security Lab at the university.

Dr. Yampolskiy is a Senior Member of IEEE and AGI; Fellow of the IEET; Member of Kentucky Academy of Science; Research Advisor for MIRI; and Associate of GCRI. He holds a PhD degree from the Department of Computer Science and Engineering at the University at Buffalo. He was a recipient of a four year NSF (National Science Foundation) IGERT (Integrative Graduate Education and Research Traineeship) fellowship. Before beginning his doctoral studies, he received a BS/MS (High Honors) combined degree in Computer Science from Rochester Institute of Technology, NY, USA. After completing his PhD dissertation, he held a position of an Affiliate Academic at the Centre for Advanced Spatial Analysis, University College London.

Dr. Yampolskiy's main areas of interest are AI Safety, Artificial Intelligence, Behavioral Biometrics, Cybersecurity, Digital Forensics, Games, Genetic Algorithms, and Pattern Recognition. He is an author of over 100 publications including multiple journal articles and books. His research has been cited by 1000+ scientists and profiled in popular magazines both American and foreign (New Scientist, Poker Magazine, Science World Magazine), dozens of websites (BBC, MSNBC, Yahoo! News), on radio (German National Radio, Swedish National Radio, Alex Jones Show), and on TV. Dr. Yampolskiy’s research has been featured 250+ times in numerous media reports in 22 languages.


The webinar will start broadcasting at 4pm UK time on Sat 5th February. To find this time in other timezones, use

    This group is for people who are interested in the future and maybe want to help shape it. The acceleration of technology means that the near future may bring radical changes to all of us. Major developments in technologies like anti-aging, nanotech, genetics, computing, robotics, and geo-engineering are going to make the next few years very exciting - and possibly also very dangerous. We could gain god-like powers - but we might also lose sight of our humanity, and destroy everything that we used to hold
