Platform: Ethics for Digital Minds

May 23 @ 11:00 am - 12:30 pm

Brain-to-computer implants, self-driving cars, and autonomous weapons  already exist. How should humanists and progressives view the social challenges expected as technologies advance?  Our speaker, member Terri Karp, has been programming computers professionally for decades, and in this non-technical discussion, she’ll explore the kinds of questions that computer scientists are considering:  Can consciousness be duplicated?  Does intelligence have boundaries?  Could a digital mind suffer?  

Zoom link will be in the Weekly Announcements email and posted on the members-only Facebook page. In addition, it may be obtained by emailing Administrative Director David Bland at admin@ethicalfocus.org
