GRAY SCOTT + ZAC WALDMAN: The Future of A.G.I; Simulation Hypothesis + Theological Perspective.

GRAY SCOTT returns to The Q. along with ZAC WALDMAN for a panel addressing the most current state of Artificial General Intelligence (AGI), as well as the growing number of questions and concerns as we become systematically more reliant upon, and integrated with, AGI.

Questions which will be addressed through this panel discussion: How are philosophical/consciousness-related implications evolving with advents in tech/social changes? Are those who are "in the know" still on the fence about AGI's potential to become sentient? What are the ethical concerns of popular society so readily adopting AGI into every aspect of daily life? Is a future world assimilated with AGI necessarily dystopian? What exists at the intersection of Consciousness, AGI, and Simulation Hypothesis? Is the evolutionary trend toward sentient/conscious/self-aware AGI inevitable - and if it IS inevitable, does it's inevitability imply that this digitization is the "coming back to self" journey of a greater Simulated, digital reality consciousness? Plus, Simulation Hypothesis from the theological perspective - the Buddhist/Gnostic connection - and more!
