Comedy, calamity, and contemplation come together as we step into the heart of Sydney’s legislative chamber for AI Will Destroy Humanity: A Future Science Debate.

Will Artificial Intelligence spell the doom of humanity, or is it the pinnacle of human achievement? This debate features Ben Rohald, Dr. Zoe Xirocostas and self-confessed science nerd and comedian Adam Spencer. It dives deep into the controversy that has even torn apart besties Elon Musk and Larry Page.

Amidst the grandeur of NSW Parliament House, witness a clash of intellects, where the future of AI becomes the battleground for scientists turned comedians, renowned journalists, and Sydney’s sharpest comedic talents.

In a unique twist, Australian scientists, intellectuals and researchers have been trained in the art of stand-up by David Crisante and the Sydney Comedy School and bring both levity and insight to this pressing debate.

Prepare for an evening of laughter, enlightenment, and spirited discussion. Dress code? Think funereal black or no-tomorrow rave. Whether AI is our end or our greatest achievement, this debate promises to be an unforgettable exploration of one of the most significant dilemmas of our time.
