"We know of no path that will take us from where we are now, in terms of computing and AI technology, to the singularity."

Michael Wooldridge is a prominent figure in the field of Artificial Intelligence. As a Professor of Computer Science at the University of Oxford and previously as head of that department, Wooldridge's contributions to the development and understanding of multi-agent systems have been seminal. His approach to AI isn't just about algorithms but emphasizes the societal implications of this rapidly evolving technology.

Recently, Wooldridge has been vocal about the ethics of AI, bringing attention to its implications for society and the responsibilities of AI developers and users. His participation at HowTheLightGetsIn promises an in-depth exploration of the future of AI and its impact on humanity.
