UGA to Host Southern Workshop on the Ethics of Emerging Technologies

Next Friday and Saturday, April 19-20, the University of Georgia Botanical Gardens will be the venue for the Southern Workshop on the Ethics of Emerging Technologies. Organized by UGA’s Philosophy Department, this event will bring together nine distinguished philosophers from Georgia and Florida to discuss critical issues related to the ethics of AI and emerging technologies.

The workshop will feature contributions from UGA philosophers including Youjin Kong, Samuel Bennett, and the event organizer, and will focus on pre-read papers available to attendees in advance. The Dropbox folder containing the drafts can be accessed here: Workshop Papers.

Attendees are invited to join for some or all of the talks, with lunch provided on-site. Given the limited capacity of the venue, potential participants are encouraged to inform the organizer in advance to ensure adequate arrangements for catering and seating. For further details and to confirm attendance, interested individuals should contact the organizer directly.

The workshop promises to be a thought-provoking event, fostering dialogue on the ethical challenges posed by rapidly advancing technologies.
