We once held language and art as almost sacred human talents. Now seemingly overnight, everything’s changed.
Our reaction to the rapid rise of AI has been a mix of fear, awe, excitement, and anxiety, and Humanities Washington has asked four experts to go beyond the hype to have a casual conversation about humanity in the age of artificial intelligence.
Will A.I. ever achieve true creativity? What will it mean for labor, for politics, for how we relate to each other? How will it perpetuate or alleviate bias? And what if our fears about A.I. are in the end just fears about ourselves?
Bringing perspectives from history, philosophy, computer science, and law, explore what might happen now that machines are becoming more like humans—and humans more like machines.
Featuring Chirag Shah, professor at the University of Washington’s iSchool; Aylin Caliskan, assistant professor at the iSchool; and Ryan Calo of the School of Law at the University of Washington. Moderated by Andrea Woody, professor of philosophy at the University of Washington.
