Data, calculations and sustainability

Everyone must contribute to a sustainable development of society, and those with the greatest resources must contribute the most. dScience, as part of a strong UiO, has resources and must therefore make a strong contribution.

Webinar: Can we make a conscious robot? If so, should we?

In the last decade, artificial intelligence has surpassed humans in among others the games of Go and Starcraft. Many researchers believe it's only a matter of time before we make an artificial intelligence that is smarter than humans in all areas. Most famous of these is Ray Kurzweil who predicts this will happen before the year 2050. But will this intelligence be conscious? What are the implications if it is or not? We invite to a panel discussion where these and other questions will be discussed.
