Humane Artificial Intelligence and Our Collective Future

May 6, 4:00pm - 5:30pm
Mānoa Campus, Burns Hall Add to Calendar

Machine learning, big data, and Artificial Intelligence are reshaping the human experience. As technology shatters previously foundational certainties and opens entirely new spaces of risk and opportunity, how can we think differently about attention and ethics? This event will feature a conversation among Dr. Peter Hershock, Director of EWC’s Asian Studies Development Program, and Dr. Andre Uhl and Dr. Emilie Parry, Fellows affiliated with the EWC’s Humane AI Initiative. This talk-story builds from Dr. Hershock’s recently-published book, Buddhism and Intelligent Technology: Toward a More Humane Future, and explores such questions as What are the potential benefits and perils of intelligent technologies? and What can individuals and communities do to counteract the capture and exploitation of our attention and the traces of our intelligent activity—our so-called data exhaust? ? This event is relevant for anyone interested in gaining a nuanced perspective of intelligent technology, how we are both shaping and being shaped by it, and what that means for our collective future.
