Lila Tretikov: The Open Mind interview

This post is a collection of quotes from Lila Tretiokov in an interview with Alexander Hefner and The Open Mind in 2016. Tretiokov was the executive director of the Wikimedia Foundation from 2014 to 2016. I recommend watching to the interview. There are 2 quotes listed below chronologically.

1. "So as we progress, and develop those different types of [artificial] intelligences, and as we understand our own human mind, how do we actually enhance how we think about ourselves, about our society, about our planet and how do we evolve as a species?" (4:20)


2. "It could be visual, it could be auditorial, it could at some point maybe tactile. Right? Who knows what we're going to do in the future. And of course there's words, and text, and symbols, and numbers and all of those things that enable us to learn much better, enable us to really build on top of that new discoveries, and learn more, and truly explore and go as far as we want." (22:28)
