Café Scientifique: Created Consciousness: The Future of Sentient Machines
|Sponsored by Ballston Science and Technology Alliance|
The notion of sentient or "conscious" computers or robots is downright scary to some, exciting and promising to others. During "Created Consciousness: The Future of Sentient Machines," Professor James Giordano will explore what kinds of moral, legal and ethical dilemmas we might have to face when that happens.
The goal of Café Scientifique is to make science more accessible and accountable by featuring speakers whose expertise spans the sciences and who can talk in plain English. Please come early to order table service and socialize. Special half-price burgers start at 5:30 p.m. Presentation begins at 6:15 p.m. followed by Q&A. No science background required! Café Scientifique is free and open to the public but advanced registration is requested.
