AI in Business

Our AI Futures series aims to share perspectives from those pushing the boundaries of technology, and this episode's discussion steps toward farther-out potential futures.

Before founding the US Transhumanist Party, Zoltan earned a degree in Philosophy & Religion from Columbia University, worked as a reporter for National Geographic, and served as a Director for WildAid (a nonprofit protecting endangered species). In recent years, he's shifted his focus to authorship, speaking, and activism, with a focus toward the long-term future for humanity. His book, "The Transhumanist Wager," is an Amazon best-seller.

This episode dives into perspectives pertinent to the future of AI governance e.g. dynamics of the USA-China AI race, the "winner-take-all" potential for powers controlling artificial general intelligence (AGI), and China's potential rise in an environment with fewer regulations and hurdles for transformational technologies like AGI, gene editing, and neurotech.
