Untitled: The Morality of AI

Stonnington Libraries

Event Date: 20 November 2022
Author / Presenters: Professor Toby Walsh and Scott Stephens

Artificial intelligence is an essential part of our lives – for better or worse. It influences what we buy, who gets shortlisted for a job and even how we vote. Without AI, medical technology wouldn’t have come so far, we’d still be getting lost on backroads in our GPS-free cars, and smartphones wouldn’t be so, well, smart. But as we continue to build more intelligent and autonomous machines, what impact will this have on humanity and the planet?

Professor Toby Walsh, a world-leading researcher in the field of AI and author of Machines Behaving Badly: The Morality of AI, discusses the ethical issues and consequences we face in a future dominated by artificial intelligence, and the decisions that need to be made now to ensure the future of AI is a force for good, not evil. 

Bookings required.

Presented as part of the 2022 Stonnington Literary Festival, [untitled]: our writers, readers and stories.
