Outsourcing Humanity: Do Algorithms Make Better Decisions Than People? SOLD OUT

NYU Global Center, Grand Hall
238 Thompson Street, 5th Floor, New York, NY 10012
A, B, C, D, E, F, or M to West 4th St—Washington Sq/ R or W to 8 St—NYU/ 6 to Astor Place

While artificial intelligence lacks empathy, reason, and even basic common sense, we already rely on it to make major decisions that affect human lives. Who gets hired? Who gets fired? Who goes to college? Who goes to jail? Whose life is saved by an organ transplant? Whose life is ended in a military strike? Machine algorithms guide us in all these decisions and, as our group of leading researchers will demonstrate, they often do a better job than we do. Good or bad, this train has left the station, so jump aboard for an eye-opening look at the brave new world of today… and tomorrow.
