- Sat, Jun 23, 2018 - Sat, Jun 30, 2018

- From early myths of artificially created beings to today, the question “who’s in control” has troubled us. The future of AI is likely to have powerful consequences related to jobs, income distribution, social justice and our polity in general. On the 50th anniversary of 2001, IRAS returns to considering the prospects, opportunities and dangers of Artificial Intelligence (AI), first discussed at an IRAS summer conference in 1968 by Marvin Minsky, a founder of AI research and consultant to Stanley Kubrick and Arthur C.

Disclaimer: While CSCA strives for excellence, it is always possible that, by mistake, we might list a conference associated with a predatory/deceptive publisher. Unfortunately, there are money-seeking organizations that prey on inexperienced scholars. These groups will produce journals (usually open access) and even host conferences under the guise of peer-review and legitimate academic interests. Click here for more information on deceptive journals.
There is no need to check up on conferences hosted by prominent, well-known, trusted science-religion groups, such as ASA, CSCA, Biologos, Christians in Science (CiS), the Ian Ramsey Centre, etc. But if you don’t recognize and trust the organization, CSCA recommends checking into it before registering or submitting anything.
