“I don’t want to insist on it, Dave, but I am incapable of making an error.”

—Hal, 2001: A Space Odyssey


Ever been fascinated with depictions of artificial intelligence in books, movies, or television? Did you think the topics to be the stuff of science fiction, only to realize that today reality can be stranger than fiction? People falling in love with videogame characters, sharing secrets with social media chatbots, being unable to distinguish between reality and deepfakes. Then this class is for you. Join me as we discuss the impact that artificial intelligence is having on society, and what you can do about it.

HND VALUE STATEMENT

Any views, findings, conclusions, or recommendations expressed in this {article, book, exhibition, film, program, database, report, Web resource}, do not necessarily represent those of the National Endowment for the Humanities or Humanities North Dakota. However, in an increasingly polarized world, we at Humanities North Dakota believe that being open-minded is necessary to thinking critically and rationally. Therefore our programs and classes reflect our own open-mindedness in the inquiry, seeking, and acquiring of scholars to speak at our events and teach classes for our Public University. To that end, we encourage our participants to join us in stepping outside our comfort zones and considering other perspectives and ideas by being open-minded while attending HND events featuring scholars who hold a variety of opinions, some being opposite of our own held beliefs.
