CMU To Host Conference on Ethics and AI
Thought leaders from industry, academia, government and the media will explore the ethical, social, and policy issues surrounding emerging technologies April 9-10 at the first Carnegie Mellon University - K&L Gates Conference on Ethics and AI.
"Computational technologies, particularly AI and robotics, are often developed and deployed without enough public engagement or discussion about their impacts," said conference co-chair David Danks, head of CMU's Philosophy Department and the L.L. Thurstone Professor of Philosophy and Psychology. "One goal of the conference is to bring together experts from a variety of fields to ensure that our technologies support and advance our collective values and interests.”
