THE UNIVERSITY OF ARIZONA
The University of Arizona College of Humanities presents the 3rd annual Dorrance Lecture Series: Humanities Innovators in a Tech World.
Sponsored by the Dorrance Scholarship Programs, the symposium brings together outside thought leaders, Humanities faculty and students in the Dorrance Scholarship Programs for lectures and discussion about the intersection between the humanities and advanced technologies, like artificial intelligence and robotics.
As technological advances bring us closer to a digital future, the humanities are vital to understanding the world. In the Fourth Industrial Revolution, the fusion of technologies is blurring the differences between the physical, digital and biological. Big data, artificial intelligence and genetic science present grand challenges that need the perspective and context of the humanities. Join us for a series of conversations about the ways human skills, human knowledge and human ingenuity are essential to making the most of these technological breakthroughs.
All talks are FREE and open to the public.
