During my presentation, which I titled “Limitless,” I showed the university’s undergrads why they are the most powerful versions of themselves that have ever lived, how they have the potential to change the world at unfathomable speed and cost, and asked them questions noone has ever asked them before. I also discussed the upsides of extreme Artificial Intelligence (AI) automation – the other side of the “AI coin” that so far the global negative news agencies have neither spied nor talked about.
