John Kasson

The Forging of American Technology and Art

Wednesday, January 24 @ 12:30 pm
Stewart Library, Hetzel-Hoellein Room

 

From the earliest days of the American republic, two central questions concerned the terms by which the new nation would industrialize. How might emerging technologies preserve and extend the ideals upon which the nation was founded, and what were the implications of these technologies for art in a republic? The relation of STEM to art has a long history, and this lecture will explore some early chapters.

Brett Frischmann

Reengineering Humanity

Friday, January 26 @ 9:45 am
Wildcat Theater, Shepherd Union Building

 

Brett Frischmann will talk about his forthcoming book Reengineering Humanity which he co-authored with RIT philosopher Evan Selinger. Frischmann notes that AI and other smart technologies seem to be reengineering our humanity. But we can’t say clearly how until we establish some base-line measures for what humanity is. In this presentation Frischmann establishes what these baselines are. Once those baselines are established we will be in a better position to identify the ways that these technologies are reshaping, and possibly degrading what it means to be human.
