Brain-Based and Artificial Intelligence: Socio-ethical Conversations in Computing and Neurotechnology

Brain-Based and AI workshop

Hosted by the Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions, this workshop seeks to explore the convergences and disparities in approaches to intelligence in neuroscience and computer science. It will reflect on how brain-based intelligence is similar to artificial intelligence (AI) and also how both can be combined in neurotechnology. Based on this, the workshop will explore the ethical and social implications that arise in AI and neurotechnology. The workshop aims to advance an interdisciplinary discussion between scientists, practitioners, and scholars around these questions.
