Conference on the development of AI and its many possible applications on May 3 in Budapest.
On May 3, 2018 , 11:00-14:30,
 
Danube Institute will host a conference entitled
 
 
Consciousness and Artificial Intelligence
 
 
The conference will be devoted to the development of AI and its many possible applications, specifically the evolution and nature of human consciousness, the current state of debate of human consciousness and how it relates to the development of AI. 
 
Current speakers include:
 
Dr. David Dusenbury of University of Leuven, lecture entitled:
 
“Immanuel Kant in the Garden of Eden”, which will explore the connection between “the emergence of intelligence and the propensity to evil” in machines.  The technophiles & technocrats are telling us that they want to introduce "intelligent, autonomous machines" - their chosen terms - which are operationally transparent and predictably benevolent.  But will they remain so?
 
"I use Kant - & the first pages of Genesis - to suggest that a 'propensity to evil' is bound up with the emergence of ‘intelligence’.   If we want intelligent machines, then, we must prepare for the fact that they will, like us, have a propensity to evil.”
 
Dr. David Martin Jones of Kings College London, lecture entitled:
 
“Utopian Ambitions Meet Big Data”, which will discuss the exploitation of human psychology, not least with its parade of endless distractions by social media; the mining of big data, as the ongoing revelations of Facebook's privacy violations attest, and the subsequent impact on political democracy.
 
 
Date:  May 03, 2018
Time:  11:00-14:30, registration: 10:30
Place: Danube Commission Building. Benczúr u. 25, 1068 Budapest. Hungary
