AI, Tech, and the End of the Anthropocene

A Virtual Conversation

November 17, 2021 - 9 to 10 a.m. (MST)

Hosted by the Iliff School of Theology's Artificial Intelligence Institute (AI Institute)
Human impact on the environment may be reaching a tipping point. The extractive nature of artificial intelligence (extraction of natural resources, of personal data, and of global labor) may be accelerating the crisis. What values might help us reframe our relationship to the environment and to technology in this new phase of human life? Join Kate Crawford, one of the world’s leading figures in AI and ethics, and Tim Beal, a technologically savvy scholar of religious values, in a conversation moderated by Philip Butler, an expert in AI and Black posthumanism.
