Discussion article for the meetup : Utrecht- Brainstorm and ethics discussion at the Film Café
We would like to make our meetups more useful for the attendants. Therefore the meetup will start with a brainstorm to collect ideas and decide on how to proceed in future. We will talk about both the discussion meetups themselves and potential projects to work on. If you have any suggestions or ideas, this will be a great opportunity to have your say.
Should your driverless car kill you to save two other people? When is it ethical to hand out our decisions over to machines? We will discuss the following article: http://aeon.co/magazine/world-views/can-we-design-systems-to-automate-ethics/ To get most out of the discussion, you are recommended to read the article in advance. It's a nice stepping stone to topics like moral psychology and AI as well. Very relevant to this topic as well to rational ethics in general: this presentation by Harvard philosopher Joshua Greene on learning to use our moral brains: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=_-vleKVkMec . When is our moral intuition correct, and when not? This one is an optional addition. Looking forward to meeting you again! New people will be warmly welcomed!
Mind that the time has changed to 2pm!
We will meet at Film Café Oscar, which is just around the corner from De Winkel van Sinkel. I will be holding a sign that says 'LW' on it. If you have trouble finding us you can reach me at 0684140766 or me Imma at 0610524989.
We have this Google Doc where anyone can make suggestions, also for the coming meetups.
