What happens when AI and cooperation science collide?
Register now for a boundary-pushing conversation, live and online, between AI expert Professor Mark Daley and cooperation scientist Professor Athena Aktipis
The next Future of Being Human … Unplugged event is being live-streamed on December 19 at 3:10 PM Eastern Time, and I’m expecting it to go places few other conversations around AI have gone!
I’ll be joined by two exciting and engaging thinkers from very different background as we explore the intersection between artificial and cooperation science. Knowing Mark and Athena well, this is going to be a lot of fun. At the same time, I’ll be pushing at the boundaries of how we think about AI and the future as I lead the conversation.
I really hope you’ll join us live online — and do spread the word and let others know. To join us (it’s free) please use the link below to register.
