SciComm Studio 008: Empathy Versus the Machines

How can artists and scientists collaborate to shine a new light on the future of technology and society? How does philosophy and empathy help us anticipate and address the opportunities and challenges ahead?

Join us for a different perspective on science communication at the convergence of science, tech, philosophy, and empathy.

We welcome two experts exploring the implications of new technology on ethics and empathy. Jodi Halpern, MD, PhD, UC Berkeley Professor of Bioethics and Medical Humanities, and Jonathon Keats, the principal artist behind Mental Work, whom The Atlantic has called a “multimedia philosopher-prophet.” Together, we’ll explore how science communicators can broaden the conversation around the impacts of tech and science on our society.

This event is held alongside the Mental Work exhibition, a philosophical thought experiment on view at the swissnex Gallery, raising questions about the potential consequences of the Cognitive Revolution. It is part of swissnex San Francisco’s ongoing explorations into the emergent future of Intelligent Machines.

Speaker: Jodi Halpern, UC Berkeley; Jonathon Keats, artist, writer and experimental philosopher.
