The robots are taking over! Why worry? On AI and Existential Risk
Screenshot of the title page of the white paper

Abstract. Hosted by Holistic AI, the London AI ethics meetup group meets on a monthly basis for a presentation and subsequent discussion of topics related to AI ethics. As part of this multidisciplinary series of events, a discussion was held on the subject of AI and Existential Risk. The attendees represented a cross-section of people (representing a range of ages and interests from philosophy, psychology, creative writing and engineering) with a shared interest in exploring the subject matter. Aside from these legal efforts, institutions and smaller groups are also contributing to the discussions, with Master’s courses in AI ethics and start-ups aiming to increase the responsible use of and trust in AI at scale emerging. The purpose of this white paper, which is part of our Holistic AI thought experiment series, is to provide a write-up of the talk given at the start of the session and should be read as a text to stimulate the discussion - much like the one that proceeded in the event.
