OCTOBER 18 & 26, 7–8:30PM
At University Presbyterian Church and Union Church
Intelligent computers and robots are coming, with much of the development work happening right in our neighborhoods at the University of Washington, in South Lake Union, and in Redmond. How will these machines be involved in our lives? How will they “learn” right from wrong in different situations, and whose values will provide the basis for that learning?
In two nights at University Presbyterian Church and Union Church, specialists in artificial intelligence, theology, and business ethics will help us understand the technological, ethical and cultural issues in this industry, and provide a basis for an ongoing cross-spectrum discussion of these important issues. The content of each night will be similar.
THURSDAY, OCT. 26, 7–8:30PM
