Royal Institute of Philosophy - 9th Annual Philosophy Public Lecture

This is a past event

Dr John Danaher (NUI Galway) will deliver the Royal Institute of Philosophy Annual Public Lecture, entitled 'Will the Rise of Artificial Intelligence Change Our Moral Culture?'

Human societies are grounded in a moral culture: a prevailing set of orthodox beliefs about what is good and what is right. Will the increased use of robotics and AI change our moral culture?

This lecture argues that it can and will do so. Specifically, it will argue that the diffusion of robots and AIs into our political, social and economic lives will cause us to shift away from a moral culture based on dignity, responsibility and the virtue of hard work, towards a moral culture based on well-being, patiency (or passivity) and the virtue of play.
