Location: Englewood, NJ
 
Attendance Platform: Web Conference
 
Proposed Session Title: Ethics For Digital Minds
 
Session Description:
Brain-to-computer implants, self-driving cars, and autonomous weapons already exist. How should skeptics view the social challenges expected as technologies advance? Terri Karp has been programming computers professionally for decades, and in this non-technical discussion, she’ll explore the kinds of questions that computer scientists are considering: Can consciousness be duplicated? Does intelligence have boundaries? Could a digital mind suffer?
