Transhumanism & Ethics : The enduring appeal of Artificial Intelligence – promises, accomplishments and disappointments
Conference with Professor Peter Gabrovsky about Artificial Intelligence. As a field of study, AI has a long history. Indeed, over the centuries, some relatively simple aspects of human intelligence have been successfully simulated by mechanical means. However, the advent of the computer stimulated the research in AI, and among other accomplishments, the human ability “to think logically” was effectively simulated. Will be presented a survey of AI’s accomplishments and address its future from a technical and ethical point of view.
Presented in English with Q&A and cocktail reception.
Free for AF members and $10 for non members
