The Future of Humane Technology Symposium

This event last occurred March 14, 2019

The Institute for Humanities Research at Arizona State University invites faculty, students and the community to watch The Future of Humane Technology symposium, streamed from ASU’s new Barrett and O’Connor Center in Washington, D.C.

The symposium will include three panels: “Humane Intelligence in the Age of AI, Algorithms and Autonomous Systems,” moderated by Professor Gaymon Bennett; “Preserving the Person in Personalized Medicine,” moderated by Dean Deborah Helitzer; and “Modeling the Future: Stories of Climate Change and Big Data,” moderated by Dean Jeffrey Cohen.

The symposium will also include a keynote conversation with Michael Crow, president of Arizona State University, whose designs for the New American University have been a catalyst for new research in humane technologies.

Though the symposium will begin at 8:45 a.m. in D.C., it will be broadcasted with a three-hour delay, allowing for faculty, staff and students to enjoy the symposium remotely in Arizona's time zone.
