Mayor London Breed has announced that all Muni rides will be free this Friday, as the air quality has worsened from "unhealthy" to "very unhealthy" due to wildfires. Please stay indoors as much as possible, and spare the air by taking public transit should you decide to attend any of these great events!
Empathy and EQ in the Age of Artificial Emotional Intelligence - Friday, November 16, 2018
A Panel Discussion Moderated by: Sophia Wang
Panelists: Katherine Isbister, Rita Popova, Dorothy Santos, Caroline Sinders
Speculations on the present state and future possibilities of machine intelligence reframe questions that are intrinsic to our social, political, and labor relations: whom do we consider the “other;” which bodies are privileged over others; and who is assigned the work that others prefer not to carry out? As machines begin to perform more care and empathy-based work – from responsive agents in handheld devices to robots designed for companionship – how will the value and measure of emotional intelligence and empathy evolve? This panel invites creative researchers across academic, artistic, and entrepreneurial practices for a conversation on current work in the field, and how to navigate our new technologies and human horizons.
