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

The Illinois Tech Center for the Study of Ethics in the Professions will host a Brain-based and Artificial Intelligence: Socio-ethical Conversations in Computing and Neurotechnology Conference on Thursday, May 10 and Friday, May 11.

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 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. We are using the term ‘brain-based’ intelligence to encompass both human and non-human animal intelligence. The workshop aims to advance an interdisciplinary discussion between scientists, practitioners, and scholars around these questions.
