The Promise and the Peril of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics

October 23, 2018 • Oregon State University

The culmination of OSU150, the celebration of Oregon State University’s 150th anniversary, was an exciting symposium focused on the future held October 23 at Oregon State University: “The Promise and the Peril of Artificial Intelligence and Robotics.”

Oregon State University hosted this daylong symposium that featured OSU faculty and national experts discussing the potential benefits, risks, ethics and uncertainties of the emerging technologies of artificial intelligence and robotics. These experts shared 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 was free and open to all members of the OSU community—students, faculty and staff—as well as the public.

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.
