Our lives are increasingly ruled by the often invisible influences of artificial intelligence (AI). This interactive Q & A-style philosophy symposium is part 2 (of a 3-part series) open to the general public.

The event will explore some of the less emphasized properties of the human spirit in relation to technology and technological advances.

Panelists will briefly address the theme and then open the symposium up to general, free-flowing discussion. This event will be live-streamed and subsequently available for viewing through this website.

For few contemporary issues are the presence of a depth perspective so critical. The development of AI focuses almost entirely on outcomes, but much of human makeup is opaque even to our own understanding. Consequently, without serious exploration of the whole psyche, the risks to humanity of ignoring subtle aspects of 'intelligence' in emerging AI are grave.

We welcome participation in this community discussion, particularly by those with an awareness of depth issues. We encourage participation by forwarding questions you'd like to see addressed that evening to: holmes.studio@yahoo.com
