Kurzweil, Turkle, Arkin, Hughes on being a Human Being in an Inhuman Age

Bard College’s Hannah Arendt Center had a two day conference on Human Being in an Inhuman Age: What does it mean to be human amidst super-human technological advances?”. The entire conference video is online, Ray Kurzweil’s (hard to hear) keynote (min26), Ron Arkin’s excellent talk on ethical controls on autonomous military robots (min493) and Sherry Turkle’s marvelous talk about the effect of constant connectedness on kids (min425). The IEET’s J. Hughes spoke (min594) as part of the panel “Will Machines Realize Their Potential as the Masters of Man?”


Had the opportunity to attend one of these sessions. Excellent, and looking forward to more!
