"Utopia's Killer Robots & the Moral Weight of a Feather" – Dr. Ahmed Amer, SCU

A talk on the ethics of potentially harmful technologies, using autonomous weapons (for their inherent design to inflict damage or harm) as an example. While the talk will briefly discuss a range of ethical perspectives on war and weapons, the focus is how to wrestle with the broader questions raised by potentially harmful technologies, and the roles of both engineers, and broader society, in limiting the realization of those technological harms.
Light refreshments will be provided for in-person attendees at 5:30pm
Presentation will start at 6:30pm
