A.I., Ecology & Earth Ethics
September 28 @ 5:00 pm – 7:00 pm
What are the social, ethical, and religious implications of artificial intelligence for the environment and the climate crisis? How can faith leaders apply their ethical insights of religious traditions to understand the nature, possibilities, and limitations of A.I.? What are the moral implications of this new technology, which holds the possibility of impacting nearly every aspect of human life?
To help us begin understanding the ecological issues surrounding artificial intelligence, the Center for Earth Ethics at Union Theological Seminary will host “A.I., Ecology & Earth Ethics” on Wednesday, September 28, at 5:00 p.m. Scheduled participants at the salon-style discussion include:
- Rev. Fred Davie, Senior Strategic Advisor, Union Theological Seminary & Commissioner, U.S. Commission on International Religious Freedom
- Karenna Gore, Founder & Executive Director, Center for Earth Ethics
- Ken Kitatani, Director General, International Council on Environmental Economics and Development
- Isaac Sharp M.Div., Ph.D., Visiting Assistant Professor of Theological Studies, Union Theological Seminary
This salon will be held in-person in the gathering space at “A Species Between Worlds,” an interactive exhibit hosted by artist John Mack at 537 West 27th Street in Manhattan. This exhibit, which focuses on how AI can shape our perceptions of reality, will provide a fascinating backdrop for a discussion of AI, ecology and earth ethics.
