Glendon series explores artificial intelligence revolution

A new three-part workshop series exploring the artificial intelligence revolution will take place at Glendon College on Feb. 6, 13 and 27.

“The Artificial Intelligence Revolution: How Will Emerging Technologies Reshape Our Society and Ourselves?” looks at how the revolution places us on the edge of change comparable to the rise of human life on Earth. It will focus on how this change will re-shape the core components of our society and ourselves, from our careers to our institutions to our ethics. What sort of future will we end up with: utopia or dystopia? What level of control do we humans still have?
