Chiltern Humanists – Morals in Artificial Intelligence – Amersham – 10 October

Sat, 09/29/2018 - 14:43

Chiltern Humanists

8.00 pm   Wednesday 10 October

 

Bob Sampson

Morals in Artificial Intelligence

 

Artificial Intelligence (AI), sometimes called machine intelligence, is intelligence demonstrated by machines, in contrast to the natural intelligence displayed by humans and other animals.   It includes any device that perceives its environment and takes actions that maximize its chance of successfully achieving its goals. Colloquially, the term “artificial intelligence” is applied when a machine mimics “cognitive” functions that humans associate with other human minds, such as “learning” and “problem solving”.   But what about morals?

 

Bob Sampson now works in IT after some years in the army.   He will describe the rise of AI, and how a future society might cope.   He will discuss the social, moral and religious impacts of such an environment on the human population.   He thinks Humanism is implicitly relevant in any such discussion.

 

Small Barn Hall,

Amersham Community Centre,

Chiltern Avenue,

Amersham HP6 5AH

 

Ample free parking.

 

Everyone is welcome at our meetings. Just come along.
