Artificial intelligence (AI) and the information age are bringing us more information about ourselves and each other than any society has ever known. Yet at the same time it brings machines seemingly more capable of every human endeavour than any human can be. What are the limits of AI? Of intelligence and humanity more broadly? What are our ethical obligations to machines? Do these alter our obligations to each other? What is the basis of our social obligations? In her lecture Joanna Bryson will argue that there are really only two problems humanity has to solve: sustainability and inequality, or put another way: security and power. Or put a third way: how big of a pie can we make, and how do we slice up that pie? Life is not a zero-sum game. We use the security of sociality to construct public goods where everyone benefits. But still, every individual needs enough pie to thrive, and this is the challenge of inequality. Joanna Bryson will argue that understanding these processes answers the questions above. She will then look at how AI is presently affecting both these problems. Joanna J Bryson, Professor of Ethics and Technology at Hertie School, is an academic recognised for broad expertise on intelligence, its nature, and its consequences. She advises governments, transnational agencies, and NGOs globally, particularly in AI policy. She holds two degrees each in psychology and AI (BA Chicago, MSc & MPhil Edinburgh, PhD MIT). Her work has appeared in venues ranging from reddit [More]
The second webinar in the new NIOSH Future of Work Webinar Series focused on the role of artificial intelligence (AI) in the future of work. Understanding how AI works can maximize occupational safety and health (OSH) advantages as well as minimize potential setbacks. Although the application of AI in the workplace is still emerging, OSH professionals, practitioners, researchers, employers, and workers can benefit from developing a greater understanding of workplace AI applications. This webinar is appropriate for anyone interested in the topics listed. For more information on the webinar series, go to For the associated NIOSH Science Blog, visit This video can also be viewed at
Artificial intelligence has been progressing at exponential rates and it’s just a matter of time until AI replaces tens of millions of blue-collar jobs and even millions of white-collar jobs. However, this is not as concerning as it might sound as artificial intelligence will also create millions of jobs not only in existing AI-related industries but also in brand new industries. Taking a look at a longer time period, AI will eventually replace all the jobs that we know today and put us in a position where everyone can just do nothing and live off welfare checks. However, people will never choose to do this. As AI takes over entire industries, it’s simply fewer things for humans to do, thus giving us more time and energy to take on bigger tasks like lengthening our lives and engaging in interplanetary travel. This video explains the various impacts of AI on the job market and why artificial intelligence will never be able to replace the role of humans.

With the prevalence of artificial intelligence in our daily lives, it’s natural to ask, “What will be the future of art in an AI-driven society?” This question becomes even more relevant as AI increasingly appears in the creative domain. Across human history, artists have always integrated new technologies into their practice—from oil paint and printmaking in the Renaissance to photography, motion pictures, and computer animation in the modern era. AI is no exception, yet we need to understand how it is different. • Marian Mazzone, Moderator, Associate Professor of Fine Arts, College of Charleston • Ahmed Elgammal, Professor of Computer Science, Founder and Director of the Art and Artificial Intelligence Laboratory, Rutgers University • Carla Gannis, Professor and Assistant Chairperson, Department of Digital Arts, Pratt Institute Presenting Sponsor: RTI International With generous support from: Burroughs Wellcome Fund Glaxo Educational and Cultural Outreach Fund Research Triangle Park Center for Documentary Studies at Duke University Unite.AI NHC Institutional Sponsors In Our Image: Artificial Intelligence and the Humanities

James Hendler is a recognized visionary, who, along with Tim Berners-Lee and Ora Lassila, created the Semantic Web. He continues to push the boundaries of thinking in computer science and artificial intelligence (AI) research with his latest book “Social Machines: The Coming Collision of Artificial Intelligence, Social Networking, and Humanity” that highlights the challenges and the possibilities of the interconnection of human and machine intelligence. Hendler’s talk will redefine the vision of how certain approaches in systems engineering can enable massive improvements in productivity for managers of information via sophisticated and increasingly intelligent algorithms, while at the same time leading to systems that perform in ways that are designed to work as naturalistically as possible for their human operators. Speaker: James Hendler, Director of the Institute for Data Exploration and Applications and the Tetherless World Professor of Computer, Web and Cognitive Sciences at Rensselaer Polytechnic Institute

GRC Summit 2018 | Baltimore: In this age of disruption, technology is a strong enabler of business. And arguably, few developments in technology have generated as much interest as artificial intelligence (AI). From digital assistants to streaming services, AI is everywhere, with seemingly endless possibilities. But beyond all the hype, what are the practical applications of AI in GRC? In this fascinating discussion with leading experts from Forrester Research and Mastercard, Mikael Hagstroem leads the conversation on the use cases for AI in GRC. Know how AI can aid functions such as audit, and lead to business growth. Also learn about the areas where AI should and shouldn’t be applied.
