Brain-based and Artificial Intelligence: Socio-ethical Conversations in Computing and Neurotechnology

May 10, 2018 @ 9:00 am - May 11, 2018 @ 5:30 pm

Organized by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, Illinois Institute of Technology


This workshop seeks to explore the convergences and disparities in approaches to intelligence in neuroscience and computer science. It will reflect on how brain-based intelligence is similar to artificial intelligence and also how both can be combined in neurotechnology. Based on this, the workshop will explore the ethical and social implications that arise in AI and neurotechnology. We are using the term ‘brain-based’ intelligence to encompass both human and non-human animal intelligence. The workshop aims to advance an interdisciplinary discussion between scientists, practitioners, and scholars around these questions.


Please view the attached schedule, and if you would like to join us for all or part of the workshop, please RSVP via EventBrite. Attendance is free and open to the public.
If you have questions, please email us at csep@iit.edu, and we hope you can join us!
