Scientific progress, especially advances in artificial intelligence and computing technologies, give society immense potential to extend human ability and productivity. However, progress is never as straightforward as it seems. We need discussions not only about the potential for human progress as a result of these developments but about how they will change our interactions with one another, whether this is desirable, whether it changes the way we think about what it means to be human and whether there are any elegant solutions to ethical dilemmas posed by machines that can be ultimately responsible for life and death. The answers to these questions can only be genuinely explored in truly interdisciplinary settings. Leave this panel with deep insight into these questions and the opportunity to ask questions of leaders in their fields.
Speakers: Prof. Robert Sparrow, Barbara Sharp, Tessa Ramanlal, Thiago Couto & Edward Cliff
