AI and ETs: From ChatGPT to the Stars by Paul Hynek

October 24 @ 7:00 pm


Most people have now heard of ChatGPT and the other popular Artificial Intelligence applications available to almost anyone now. But how could AI be related to UFOs and ETs? Are people using AI to find aliens?

Could aliens, especially the iconic “Grays,” actually be AI alien sentinels? Is Humanity’s future post-biological?

In this fascinating lecture and slide presentation, Paul Hynek discusses all this and more and presents his theory as to why, one way or another, AI WILL become self-aware and recursively self-improving within 20 years, or maybe much sooner!

Note: Mr. Hynek will be presenting IN PERSON
