Signals from the Future #11 – A.I. & Love
Voice assistants, smart homes, social media algorithms – artificial intelligence has long since arrived in our everyday lives. But how close can artificial intelligence really get to humans – emotionally and even sexually? The British computer scientist Kate Devlin engages with questions like this in her work. She is Senior Lecturer in Social and Cultural Artificial Intelligence in the Department of Digital Humanities at King’s College London, specialising on human sexuality and robotics and founder of UK’s first sex tech hackathon.
How ethical can and should A.I. be when it comes to love and sexuality? How far can technology and emotions be connected? How diverse and accessible can sex tech be when A.I. is largely programmed by white men? And what influence could A.I. have on „real“ relationships between human beings?
Let’s discuss together with Kate Devlin!
