Artificial Intelligence Discussion at TCNJ, March 2

Artificial Intelligence Discussion at TCNJ, March 2

The School of Business Center for Innovation and Ethics is hosting its inaugural event on Monday, March 2 at 7pm, in the Mayo Concert Hall.

Artificial Intelligence: Promise, Ethics and Peril—An Evening of Conversation features James Barrat, documentary filmmaker and author of Our Final Invention: Artificial Intelligence and the End of the Human Era, which has been named a Huffington Post Definitive Tech Book of 2013. James Barrat has recently appeared on CNN and BBC World, discussing the dangers of AI, and was named by Time Magazine as one of “5 Very Smart People Who Think Artificial Intelligence Could Bring the Apocalypse.”

Join the conversation! The business and technology communities are intrigued by the promise of artificial intelligence. Stephen Hawking, Elon Musk and Bill Gates have expressed concerns about the risks posed by continued advances in AI. Will we control artificial intelligence or will it control us?

This free event will be followed by a book signing and reception. It is co-sponsored by the Schools of Engineering; Humanities and Social Sciences; Nursing, Health and Exercise Science; and Science and by the TCNJ Chapter of Phi Beta Kappa.

The School of Business Center for Innovation and Ethics is devoted to the idea that innovation and ethics together should shape our future. Read more about the Center and the evening here:
