Artificial Intelligence:

The Promise and the Peril


by James Barrat

Author and Producer

As an award-winning documentary filmmaker, Barrat introduces audiences to complex ideas in engaging and provocative ways. His films have set ratings records for National Geographic, Discovery, PBS, and other broadcasters in the US and Europe. As a speaker, Barrat shines a light on AI’s soaring potential in science, medicine, ‘smart’ industrial design, and more. He explores why investment in artificial intelligence has doubled each year since 2009, and why by 2025 AI and automation will make up the largest sectors of the economy. But Barrat also probes the dark side of machine intelligence, one you’ll never hear about from Google, Apple, Facebook, or Amazon.
