AI: Hype or Revolution?

We invite students and staff to attend the forthcoming conference "AI: Hype or Revolution?" organized by the postgraduate students of the Centre for Interdisciplinary Methodologies (CIM).

As AI continues to make new breakthroughs, questions arise about our relationship with these automated machines, sparking debates about the potential benefits and risks associated with this technology. Can AI provide solutions to the fundamental problems facing our societies? How so? Who is behind these AIs? Who is it for? And what even is AI?

On the one hand, the excitement about the potential of AI to provide solutions to some of the most pressing problems facing society, applied to heterogenous contexts such as climate change, healthcare, and education. On the other, a concern on the social and political issues that may arise, or be reproduced, from these technologies.

In the age of AI, it is increasingly important to consider the impacts of this technology on the world around us. The conference will focus on the ways in which AI is changing the relationships between humans and non-humans, as well as how these changes are reshaping our understanding of the world.

Dr. Beatrice Fazi (University of Sussex) will present a Keynote examining trends and issues concerning AI in the fields of Media, Arts, and humanities. The Conference Programme will be added soon.

The conference will take place 29th June 2023 on campus (Oculus Building), from 9.15 - 6pm - see the Conference Programme. Refreshments and lunch will be included, and there will be a post-conference social event.
