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

May 10, 2018 - May 11, 2018

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.

We invite presentations from the fields of neuroscience, computer science, engineering, psychology, philosophy, ethics, law, political science and social science. Please submit an abstract of up to 500 words.

Abstracts for 20-30 minute presentations are due by March 9, 2018. Please send your abstract to csep@iit.edu.We also welcome your questions or proposals for additional workshop topics at csep@iit.edu.
