“By far, the greatest danger of Artificial Intelligence is that people conclude too early that they understand it.” (Eliezer Yudkowsky, 2012) Automation discourse, digital labor, digital waste and techno-feminism… the once far-fetched terms are now in a process of becoming a reality as our culture is now deeply shaped by algorithms and technology than anytime.

How is AI changing our lives? What are the social, political, and ethical implications of algorithms and robotics? What will the future human-technology relationship look like? To explore these, come to our workshop and have a discussion with each other at Shanghai’s HOW Museum on April 30th 2020.

We will have a free conversation with peers who shared the same interests on AI ethics and see what others are doing!

This workshop is conceptualized and convened by LI Ruoyu and Chai Hua students of Arts and Humanities at Duke Kunshan University, which will take place part of the one-day symposium “The Female Robot” co-hosted by the Humanities Research Center of Duke Kunshan University and HOW Museum Shanghai, curated by prof. Zairong Xiang.

“现如今,人工智能最大的危险便潜藏在人们对于它完全了解之前的过早总结。” (Eliezer Yudkowsky, 2012)  自动化论述,电子劳务,电子垃圾以及技术女性主义……它们曾一度只是遥远的概念,而现如今,随着我们的生活被算法与科技深刻地影响,这些话题正在成为新的事实。 AI 如何改变着我们的生活? 算法与机器人技术有什么社会意义上,政治上以及伦理上的应用吗?人类与科技的关系在未来会是怎样?加入我们的研讨会,来探索这些有意思的问题吧!此次工作坊由昆山杜克大学的学生组织,将会在4月30日于上海昊美术馆举行,并有免费午餐!如果你感兴趣,请于4月15日前联系邮箱 或者。座位有限,期待你的参与!



This event is co-organized by the HOW Art Museum, DKU’s Humanities Research Center, and DKU’s Division of Arts and Humanities and curated by Professor Zairong Xiang.
