On Wednesday, March 4, Susan Schneider, philosopher at University of Connecticut and Library of Congress, will present the talk “How Will AI Change Us” at Stevens’ College of Arts and Letters. The event will be held in the Babbio Auditorium.
Schneider, who holds positions at the University of Connecticut and Library of Congress, will talk about her new book, “Artificial You: AI and the Future of Your Mind,” which explores the ways, positive and negative, in which artificial intelligence might transform us. Physicist and author Martin Rees says Schneider “offers sophisticated insights on what is perhaps the number one challenge confronting humanity.”
