The Workshop aims to provide a forum for stimulating and constructive exchange among philosophers currently working on issues concerning normativity, broadly construed to include: the traditional questions of metaethics (and analogous questions about other normative domains); theories of reasons, rationality and reasoning; the semantics and pragmatics of normative language; the psychology of normative judgment; and the nature of epistemic normativity. The hope is to showcase cutting-edge work in these and related areas, providing speakers with useful feedback, and other participants with lively presentations and conversation.

On November 17-18, 2017, the NYU Center for Mind, Brain and Consciousness, the NYU Center for Bioethics, and NYU Animal Studies will host a conference on Animal Consciousness.

This conference will bring together philosophers and scientists to discuss questions such as: Are invertebrates conscious? Do fish feel pain? Are non-human mammals self-conscious? How did consciousness evolve? How does research on animal consciousness affect the ethical treatment of animals? What is the impact of issues about animal consciousness on theories of consciousness and vice versa? What are the best methods for assessing consciousness in non-human animals?

The full program for “The Ethics of Artificial Intelligence” Conference at NYU, hosted by The NYU Center for Bioethics and the NYU Center for Mind, Brain and Consciousness is now available (see below).

The conference is taking place this Friday and Saturday October 14-15 at the NYU Kimmel Center and the Cantor Film Center.

Full details including abstracts can be found here.

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.

St. John’s Department Philosophy is hosting a Speculative Ethics Forum for professional philosophers, graduate students, and philosophy faculty this Saturday, December 5, 2015 from 9 a.m. – 5 p.m. on the St. John’s University Manhattan Campus.

Here’s the schedule for the day:

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: Wx3xJJonIYjTFw_v5TBqQ9UHO-w==
