Artificial intelligence and other new technologies are entering everyone’s daily lives at a pace that barely allows for reflection on the potential consequences of their use, let alone thinking about how these systems will evolve in the future. The development and use of such advanced technological systems today raises important questions that require an interdisciplinary approach to addressing them. 

The goal of this conference is to promote interdisciplinary dialog in a variety of fields in addressing the many challenges posed by AI and other emerging technologies. We would like for this conference to provide contributions that will not just analyse the AI landscape but also raise awareness and provide insightful, empowering ideas on how to fruitfully live in tomorrow’s AI-augmented world while preserving the full spectrum of our humanity. We welcome contributions from various domains such as, but not limited to:

  • Philosophy: The question of intentionality — Can a machine have a mind, a consciousness? Machine intelligence: Is it possible for machines to solve problems using intelligence in the same way as humans? Limits to machine intelligence. Artificial Intelligence and the Body: is the body fundamental for intelligence? Machine ethics: can machines be dangerous to humans? How can scientists ensure that machines behave ethically?
  • Theology: Discussion of the implications of AI and new technologies for the doctrine of the imago Dei, human creativity, and the concept of providence. Theological anthropology perspectives on the ethical questions these technologies raise for human freedom, human work, and community.
  • Computer Science: Investigating the lack of transparency of AI tools: AI decisions are not always comprehensible to humans. AI is not neutral: AI-based decisions are prone to inaccuracies, discriminatory outcomes, embedded or inserted biases. Surveillance practices for data collection and user privacy.
  • Perspectives on the ethical challenges that AI brings to other fields such as law, healthcare, economy, sociology, etc.

All abstracts on topics related to AI ethics and the challenges of new technologies, as described above, are welcome. The organizers encourage a diversity of approaches and perspectives, so participants may come from many different scientific fields and address a very broad range of ethical challenges to which they wish to draw attention. Up to twelve participants will be selected for inclusion in the conference program. Publication of the conference proceedings is planned in the form of a collection of scientific essays. Speakers will receive instructions for submitting the full papers by the end of November 2023.
