Artificial Intelligence and Philosophy: Why Do They Need Each Other?
12:00 p.m. to 1:30p.m. ESTOnline
Artificial Intelligence has undergone a boom in recent years, and its applications are now ubiquitous, figuring in our private and professional lives, and raising profound issues for society at large (e.g. in relation to algorithmic bias, autonomous machines, data privacy, democratic deliberation, etc). In this international roundtable, hosted by NCH at Northeastern, experts in Philosophy, Ethics, AI, and Robotics, from Northeastern, NCH, and University of Manchester in England discuss the question of how both industry and the field of AI can benefit from input from philosophy and vice versa.
Audience participation is very much encouraged, and attendees can expect to acquire and perhaps contribute insights on the value of interdisciplinary engagement, and education, across these diverse fields.
