In 1974, in the shadow of the Vietnam War and amidst the economic and political retrenchments of post-1968, Ursula K. Le Guin published The Dispossessed. The novel’s radical innovation of the narrative utopia, with its unblinking acknowledgment of the form’s conceptual as well as practical limits, paradoxically revitalized and reactivated utopia’s uncompromising social vocation for an emphatically anti-utopian era.

2nd Annual Conference on Artificial Intelligence, Ethics and Society

updated: 
Monday, October 22, 2018 - 3:51pm
AAAI / ACM
deadline for submissions: 
Friday, November 2, 2018

As AI is becoming more pervasive in our lives, its impact on society is more significant, raising ethical concerns and challenges regarding issues such as value alignment, safety and security, data handling and bias, regulations, accountability, transparency, privacy, and workforce displacement. Only a multidisciplinary effort can find the best ways to address these concerns, including experts from disciplines such as ethics, philosophy, economics, sociology, psychology, law, history, and political science. In order to address these issues in a scientific context, AAAI and ACM have joined forces to start a new conference, the AAAI/ACM Conference on AI, Ethics, and Society.
