It is with great pleasure that we announce our Thursday, October 3rd event, “Ethics and the Future of AI”. With the rapid rise of AI, a host of new ethical issues present themselves: biases in algorithms, effects on the future of work, whether we will someday have conscious robots, just to name a few.
Join us with our distinguished panel of authors, academics, and industry leaders to discuss these deeply important issues. We will also be celebrating Rutgers alum, Susan Schneider, in the launch of her new book, Artificial You.
Please RSVP so we can get an accurate headcount: https://forms.gle/mKbiBG9KZsE97GEXA
