This was the final episode of the the CrashCourse series on artificial intelligence (AI). It focused on the future of AI.

Instead of making firm predictions, the narrator opted to describe how far AI development has come and how much further it could go. He used self-driving cars as an example.

Five levels or milestones of self-driving AI.

Viewed this way, the development of AI is gauged on general milestones instead of specific states.

The narrator warned us that the AI of popular culture was still the work of science fiction as it had not reached the level of artificial general intelligence.

His conclusion was as expected: AI has lots of potential and risks. The fact that AI will likely evolve faster than the lay person’s understanding of it is a barrier to realising potential and mitigating risks.

Whether we develop AI or manage its risks, the narrator suggested some questions to ask when a company or government rolls out AI initiatives.

Questions about new AI initiatives.

I thoroughly enjoyed this 20-part series on AI. It provided important theoretical concepts that gave me more insights into the ideas that were mentioned in the new YouTube Original series, The Age of AI. Watching both series kept me informed and raised important questions for my next phase of learning.
