AI, Automation and Society

November 14, 2017
5:30pm — 7:00pm ET

In the first symposium, CASBS presents a panel discussion among three 2017-18 CASBS fellows supported by the Berggruen Institute: technology journalist John Markoff, applied engineer and defense researcher Arati Prabhakar, and philosopher-ethicist and Buddhist monk Tenzin Priyadarshi. They will explore vital issues including the pace of adoption of automation and artificial intelligence (AI); the ethical responsibilities of scientists, engineers, and technology firms; and the implications for jobs and societal disruption.

How we frame and contextualize these and related issues and questions will influence how we as a society address the challenges and opportunities of automation and AI.
