Humanities Symposia – “‘Artificial Intelligence: A Step Beyond Hollywood'”

Dr. Sean Carroll presents his talk “‘Artificial Intelligence: A Step Beyond Hollywood” as part of the Spring 2017 Trine University Humanities Symposia.

Science fiction books and films offer clear images of Artificial Intelligences. In this presentation, Dr. Carroll will discuss how these ideas compare to the goals of the people actually developing AI. How do these goals shape the AI’s “personality”? If a computer program is as smart as a human, does it deserve human rights? Do you care?
