Super-intelligence, Frankenstein, and Post-humanism: AI Ethics Beyond Data and Algorithmic Bias

Thursday, February 9, 2023 | 12:30 PM - 1:30 PM

Moving beyond the contemporary debates centering on data and algorithmic bias, join Professor An as he discusses the philosophical and practical issues concerning AI ethics in the future.

Do AI's have sentience or awareness, and if so, do we want/need to treat AI's as moral agents and offer them rights? How can we learn to coexist with AI (super)intelligence? Do we have a "third way” besides technological singularity (and resulting apocalypse) and trans-humanism (superhuman)?

This presentation is part of the Brown School’s Artificial Intelligence in the Social Sciences Series.
