The Promise and the Peril of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

October 23, 2018 • Oregon State University

Please mark your calendars for the culmination of OSU150, the celebration of Oregon State University’s 150th anniversary. An exciting symposium focused on the future will take place on October 23: “The Promise and the Peril of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.”

Oregon State University will host this daylong symposium. OSU faculty and national experts will participate in this symposium and discuss the potential benefits, risks, ethics and uncertainties of the emerging technologies of artificial intelligence and robotics. These experts will contribute their insights into the potential for AI and robotics to transform agriculture, health care, natural resource management, transportation, arts and entertainment as well as consider possible impacts on jobs, the economy, our laws and privacy. The symposium is free and welcomes all members of the OSU community—students, faculty and staff—as well as the public. The day will engage academia, industry, policy makers and others.

The symposium will take place in The LaSells Stewart Center and the CH2M HILL Alumni Center.

Keynote Presenter

Jacob Ward, science and technology correspondent for CNN and Al Jazeera, will give the keynote address at 5 p.m. Ward previously served as the editor-in-chief of Popular Science magazine and recently completed work on “Hacking Your Mind,” a four-hour series on the science and implications of bias slated to air on PBS in 2019. In the coming academic year, he will study the effects of artificial intelligence on human decision-making at Stanford University’s Center for Advanced Study in Behavioral Sciences.

In the 1990s, OSU entomologist George Poinar inspired author Michael Crichton by providing a plausible scientific basis for a fictional story about obtaining dinosaur DNA preserved in amber. Ever heard of it?

It's now one of the most popular book and movie series ever. #OSU150

Established in 1911, the Cosmopolitan Club was the first campus organization for international students, and one of the first to promote diversity. Today, international students make up more than 11% of OSU’s total enrollment. #OSU150
