All agree that artificial intelligence will continue to transform human life in the 21st century. But whether that transformation will be for good or ill — or both — relies heavily on decisions made by humans. On this week's LBJ In the Arena, theoretical neuroscientist, technologist and entrepreneur Dr. Vivienne Ming (a multiple Ph.D. who prefers the labels "self-appointed do-gooder" and "mad scientist") summed up the AI conundrum, and offered a roadmap for leaders shaping its course. Dr. Ming was in conversation with Dr. Varun Rai, LBJ School Associate Dean for Research and the director of the Energy Institute at The University of Texas.
