The NYU Center for Bioethics and the NYU Center for Mind, Brain and Consciousness will host a conference on “The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence” this October at NYU.

Recent progress in artificial intelligence (AI) makes questions about the ethics of AI more pressing than ever. Existing AI systems already raise numerous ethical issues: for example, machine classification systems raise questions about privacy and bias. AI systems in the near-term future raise many more issues: for example, autonomous vehicles and autonomous weapons raise questions about safety and moral responsibility. AI systems in the long-term future raise more issues in turn: for example, human-level artificial general intelligence systems raise questions about the moral status of the systems themselves.

The Northwestern University Society for the Theory of Ethics and Politics (NUSTEP) is hosting its tenth annual conference on May 19–21, 2016 and will feature keynote addresses by Nomy Arpaly and Pamela Hieronymi.

Location: St. John’s University, Manhattan campus, New York
Date: December 5, 2015, Saturday

Call for papers: Meta-Ethics and Normative Ethics
The Speculative Ethics Forum is a one day workshop-style event in which we’ll consider the most challenging matters of ethics. Ethical approaches of all sorts are welcomed–analytic, continental, ancient, medieval, Asian, and so on. Most papers are invited. There are two slots open for submissions. Any paper in ethical theory will be considered for acceptance. Bold and speculative inquiries are preferred to papers that primarily defend ground already gained or papers that are primarily scholarly. Our aim, in short, is to have a single day concentrated on expanding the horizons of ethics.

Final session now live: you can watch the live broadcast here: https://www.periscope.tv/w/V0IB7TI4MzI5MDV8MTM0Mzc4NDEHNGogIjSWdbLAyPT Wx3xJJonIYjTFw_v5TBqQ9UHO-w==
