Generative Artificial Intelligence (A.I.) tools have the potential to alter profoundly the ways we work, create, think, and behave. They raise such questions as: What makes humans distinctive? Can machines have consciousness? What is intelligence? Are the methods used to create A.I. tools ethical? In this symposium, we hope to open a discussion on the philosophical, ethical, political, and cultural, challenges that A.I. poses for our society.
The George Washington University Digital Humanities Institute is a hub of research, teaching, and outreach activities around digital and new media. It is founded upon the core belief that the arts and humanities actively transform and are transformed by digital cultures. We seek to increase public engagement with digital humanities projects within and beyond the GW community and greater DC area.
