AI and the Digital | Seminar Series

We're delighted to be co-sponsoring a new seminar series on AI and the Digital, convened by our research affiliate Dr. Audrey Borowski, with our colleagues from Cambridge Digital Humanities (CDH) and the Leverhulme Centre for the Future of Intelligence (LCFI) at the University of Cambridge, the Center for Science and Thought at the University of Bonn and the Stiftung Mercator.

AI and the Digital will explore how AI and other digital technologies are influenced by concepts of the human and how they can be designed to be responsible, socially just and ecologically sustainable. Together with international experts, participants are invited to discuss the entanglement of thought and technology.

The series is hosted and streamed via Zoom by The Philosopher.
