Authorship, Agency, and Moral Obligation
(Professor of Ethics and Technology in the Centre for Digital Governance at Hertie School in Berlin)
How much of our individual human experience can we absorb into machine models when we use machine learning and a huge amount of data? Will AI become sentient? Sovereign? Ambitious? How will living with AI change our daily experience? This talk reflects natural, social, and computing sciences, describing both human and artificial intelligence, then governance, justice, and creativity. What we do matters, and we are obliged to ourselves and our planet to create and maintain good governance of all artefacts of our species.
Joanna J Bryson, Professor of Ethics and Technology at Hertie School, is an academic recognised for broad expertise on intelligence, its nature, and its consequences. She advises governments, transnational agencies, and NGOs globally, particularly in AI policy. She holds two degrees each in psychology and AI (BA Chicago, MSc & MPhil Edinburgh, PhD MIT). Her work has appeared in venues ranging from reddit to the journal Science. She continues to research both the systems engineering of AI and the cognitive science of intelligence, with present focuses on the impact of technology on human cooperation, and new models of governance for AI and ICT.
The talk will be in English and followed by a Q&A session.
This event is organised by CADA in partnership with Lisbon Architecture Triennale and Faculty of Fine Arts, University of Lisbon (Departments of Communication Design and of Multimedia Arts) as part of Human Entities 2023: culture in the age of artificial intelligence, Seventh edition (Public talks, April – May 2023)
