Featured Session: Machine or Human? The Ethics Behind Smarter AI

Mar 18, 2022

4:00pm – 5:00pm CT

There’s no question AI is getting smarter and more human-like and has the potential to change our world. Emerging technologies like GPT-3, multi-skilled AI, and Emotion AI can now replicate human-written text with uncanny realism; problem-solve, adapt, and react to unfamiliar situations; and understand human emotions, cognitive states, and activities. With these advancements in AI, there come ethical challenges in how we integrate the technology into society and our lives. In this session, we will explore what a human-centric AI world can look like, how we can build emotional intelligence into our machines, and the massive potential this has to improve our lives — as well as the possible risks.
