Workshop: Brain-based and Artificial Intelligence: Socio-ethical Conversations in Computing and Neurotechnology
May 10-11, 2018, Chicago, IL
Organized by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, Illinois Institute of Technology
This workshop sought to explore the convergences and disparities in approaches to intelligence in neuroscience and computer science. It reflected on how brain-based intelligence is similar to artificial intelligence and also how both can be combined in neurotechnology. Based on this, the workshop explored 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.
