We are entering a new technological epoch that will completely change the way we live, work, love, and remember (skeptics should recall the iPhone is only ten years old). Embodied artificial intelligence (AI) will eventually become widely available vehicles for portraiture, which leads to the possibility of the transfer and preservation of consciousness. It is imperative our AI doppelgangers be developed and coded in ways that convincingly represent the rich diversity of stories, culture, and physicality of the human family.
In this conversation, the group aims to discuss embodied artificial intelligence (androids) as representation, community generated storytellers, and the animated transmitters of culture. Stephanie will look at the implications of artificial intelligence for society. She hopes to demystify AI and spread these ideas as a spark for more conversations to come.
