Artificial Intelligence and the Human

This series of six lectures looks at the successes, as well as the failures, in the search of artificial intelligence and uses them as a window into the larger question of what this search can tell us about shifts in how we conceive of what it is to be human. The series will be hosted by Zed Adams and Markus Gabriel.
