Within the frame of “Les Jeudis des Sciences”, Paul McNamara from the University of New Hampshire will explore the significance of Bold Artificial Intelligence on 3 December at 5.30pm on Campus Kirchberg.

Ignoring the supernatural, until our time, the only serious candidates for possession of psychological attributes were biological entities. “Bold Artificial Intelligence” is the view that it is possible in principle for a pure mechanism of some sort to possess psychological attributes.

That’s what bold AI means, and that’s what makes it theoretically and technically radical: it invites the quest to free the psychological from confinement to the biological. But what else of more practical weight might be true if the view is true? Paul McNamara will explore the significance of bold AI by asking this question with a focus on rights.
