PhilosophyCenter | Overview

  Machine LearningMachine Learning provides a four-week individual study forum for exploring various philosophical assumptions and implications of the current approach to artificial intelligence (A.I.) technology along with its potential risks and related topics.

Some of these topics may include the black box problem, hallucination, emergent phenomena, the potential application of personal boundaries to aritificial intelligence, ethical considerations, and whether or not machine learning is a "road with no turns," and if so, what we may be able to do about it if anything to safeguard society, humanity, and the world.
