Machine Intelligence: Psycho Pass and Reflections on Automatic Society
Speaker(s): Dr. Tsz Yuen Lai
Dr. Tsz Yuen Lai, Research Assistant Professor of the Academy of Film, Hong Kong Baptist University, he is developing studies and courses including: ‘Film and 20th Century Political-intellectual History’ and ‘Techno-humanity’.
Are people happier living in a society that leaves individual judgments to the proxy of machine intelligence? Will determining the good or evil and the fate of individuals based on digital traces and the machinic computations lead to a more objective and just society? Does automation make everyday life easier and human being more powerful, or does it forcibly eliminate possibilities? Drawing on the world view of the popular animated series Psycho Pass, we invite participants to discuss and reflect on various issues related to the automatic society. Nanjing Course by Bernard Stiegler will be our reference.
