Artificial Intelligence

May 12 @ 9:15 am - 10:15 am

Jared Millson, Assistant Professor of Philosophy at Rhodes College

Advancements in Artificial Intelligence are poised to reshape everything from the economy to our artistic and expressive practices. Since the transformations wrought by these new technologies are both dramatic and accelerating, it’s natural to approach them with trepidation. But, as is so often the case, much of our fear is born of ignorance. In this tutorial, I provide a brief overview of the field of Artificial Intelligence—its history, methods, and philosophical commitments. With this background, we’ll turn to some of the social, environmental, and ethical challenges confronting the development and deployment of artificial systems. While these new technologies raise many legitimate concerns, they also hold enormous promise for a better world.
