Online Seminar On Undergraduate Mathematics Education

Tuesday, December 05, 2023

Virtual Event

Speaker:  Lionel Levine (Cornell University)

Title:  Math (education) for AI safety

Details:  Many of today’s math majors will be tomorrow’s AI engineers. How can we empower our students to succeed in a world pervaded by AI, and to shape that world? Tech progress may be inevitable, but it is also path-dependent: The technologies we pursue as a civilization are ultimately a function of choices made by individual human beings. The future of AI holds great promise and, many believe, great peril. What is the best way to encourage our students – especially those going into tech careers – to wrestle with the moral and ethical dimensions of AI? This talk will be interactive, and I’ll mostly supply questions rather than answers, so please come prepared to debate!
