The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence: A Humanist Perspective

AI services are rapidly spreading everywhere. What effect will this have on humanity? How can we harness the potential of AI and use it to improve human intelligence and creativity?

Through data processing, AI can do tasks that human beings do through their creative intelligence, sense-making and understanding, leading to the metaphor of ‘intelligent machines’. The ability to process large amounts of data is enormously beneficial in the age of information, to the point that AI can even predict and influence human behaviour.

In this webinar, Dr. Schorlemmer will analyse the difference between artificial and human intelligence, differentiating between information, knowledge and data. He explores the multi-dimensional nature of human intelligence and argues in favour of “a mature and harmonious socially embodied intelligence, based on universal lifelong education”.

The presentation will be followed by an open discussion with the speaker.

Come and join us for an interesting evening, full insights and wonder!

About the Event Organiser

The dialogue between scientific knowledge and contemplative wisdom has the potential to catalyse growth, resilience and positive change.

Science & Wisdom LIVE is a project of Jamyang London Buddhist Centre, bringing together scientists and contemplative practitioners of all faiths to address our society’s biggest challenges. Through dialogue and inquiry, it promotes the ideas of societal wisdom – the skilful use of our knowledge and experience to foster individual and collective well-being.

Each dialogue explores the middle ground between science and contemplative wisdom, focusing on themes such as the ethics of artificial intelligence, gender equality, climate change, and the benefits of mindfulness and meditation for mental health.
