AI: Debating the impacts, crafting the futures
As part of the Insitute of Advanced Studies' (IAS) Annual Theme 'AI:Facts, Fictions, Futures', this virtual event will bring together a range of academics to discuss the impact and future of Artificial Intelligence (AI).
Voices in academia, the technology industry and civil society are increasingly critical of the implications raised by the growing pervasiveness and ubiquity of AI in all domains of social, economic and political life. From racial bias and discrimination to politically motivated decision-making algorithms, a plethora of high-profile cases appear to justify the critique that after all, the design and deployment of AI is all too human, hence subject to human bias and fallacy. As we approach the closing of the IAS Annual Theme series on AI: Facts, Fictions, Futures, this event will bring together academics in the social sciences, humanities and technology studies to debate the current impacts of AI and suggest principles for alternative futures.
Convened by: Dr Amalia Sabiescu, Dr Lise Jaillant & Dr Adrian Leguina
