Artificial intelligence is emerging as an important element in almost every aspect of human life. Yet little has been said or done about the overall implications of this huge leap forward in technology. How will electoral procedures be protected from interference? Can any semblance of individual privacy be preserved in democratic settings, let alone authoritarian ones? Even the simplest questions still plague us: will we be able to control the intelligent machines we’ve created? will they outwit us?; will we rely on them for the most important things? (hint: we already do). At the Forum for the Academy and the Public’s 6th annual conference, The Future of the Future: The Ethics and Implications of AI, experts and thinkers of all kinds will come together to discuss these and other AI issues—for example, AI’s effects on climate, work, art, medicine, and war—and to help us understand what awaits the planet as humanity moves into a problematic technological future.




Free and open to the public. Presented by the Forum for the Academy and the Public. Sponsored by Illuminations: The Chancellor's Arts and Culture Initiative, the UCI School of Law, the Humanities Center, and Los Angeles Review of Books. For event information, please contact Amanda Swain, ajswain@uci.edu. Parking at UCI Student Center (Friday) and Mesa Parking Structure (Saturday)
