The Ethics of Emerging Technology

ARTISTS HAVE A CRITICAL ROLE FOR PROVIDING REFLECTION, ANALYSIS, AND EXPLORATION OF EVERY ASPECT OF HUMAN EXPERIENCE. AS HUMANITY HOVERS ON THE VERGE OF A DRAMATIC LEAP TOWARDS INTEGRATING TECHNOLOGY INTO THE VERY DEFINITION OF BEING HUMAN, DISRUPTING OUR SENSE OF PURPOSE FOR LIVING, AND CHANGING THE MEANING OF LIFE, WE MUST USE DIRECT AND INDIRECT APPROACHES TO FINDING OUR BEARINGS IN A NEW FUTURE. NO WHERE ARE THESE QUESTIONS MORE PRESSING THAN IN SEARCH FOR ETHICS FOR THE EMERGING ARTIFICIAL INTELLIGENCE.

 

Icarus Salon is looking for partnerships.

If you have any questions or see an alignment with Icarus Salon’s goals and your own organization, please get in touch.

Icarus Salon is proud to be working with the following organizations:
