The Human Renascence in the Era of Robots: Alberto Levy

Loading Events

As we watch incredible advances in artificial intelligence and robotics, machines get smarter and stronger every day.

Some say robots will take everyone’s jobs and we are doomed to live under harsh circumstances, but the reality is that humans are needed more than ever, and this is an opportunity for a “Human Renascence.”

Why not allow machines to do what they do better and further develop our human skills? Critical thinking, creativity, negotiation, emotional intelligence, and love cannot be developed by machines as humans do, yet those skills are fundamental in the construction of our future and in the design of robots.

In this lecture, Alberto Levy Macedo will talk about how we are educated to be robots, and will discuss about jobs, ethics in AI, and how to combine technology and humanity for a better future.

This event takes place at the Richter Library – 102B Learning Commons Flexible Program Space.
