The Influence and Ethics of Artificial Intelligence Explored at NIU STEM Cafe
The upcoming Northern Illinois University STEM Cafe will delve into the influence and ethics of artificial intelligence (AI) technologies. The event, which is free and open to the public, will take place at 6:30 p.m. on Wednesday at Fatty’s Pub and Grille in DeKalb. Attendees will have the opportunity to learn about not only the practical implications but also the ethical considerations surrounding AI in the realms of communication and creativity.
Companies today are both intimidated by the prospect of falling behind those utilizing AI and cautious about its implications. This caution arises from concerns about the boundary between what AI is capable of and what it should avoid. As AI continues to advance, understanding its ethical and practical applications becomes crucial.
The upcoming STEM Cafe will feature two prominent speakers: David J. Gunkel, a professor of media studies at NIU and a presidential research, scholarship, and artistry professor, and Andy Jeon, an assistant professor of marketing at NIU. The speakers will shed light on the growing influence of AI and its impact on various aspects of our lives.
NIU STEM Cafes are organized as part of NIU STEAM, an initiative focused on raising public awareness about the critical role that STEM disciplines play in our everyday life. Interested individuals must register to attend the event by visiting the go.niu.edu/stemcafe website.
Artificial intelligence has become an increasingly significant area of research, and understanding its influence and ethical implications is vital for individuals and organizations alike. The STEM Cafe serves as a valuable platform for discussing and exploring these issues, providing an opportunity for attendees to gain insights from experts in the field.
