Towards Life 3.0: Ethics and Technology in the 21stCentury is a new talk series organized and facilitated by Mathias Risse, Director of the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and Lucius N. Littauer Professor of Philosophy and Public Administration. Drawing inspiration from the title of Max Tegmark’s book, Life 3.0: Being Human in the Age of Artificial Intelligence, the series draws upon a range of scholars, technology leaders, and public interest technologists to address the ethical aspects of the long-term impact of artificial intelligence on society and human life.

Held on select Monday evenings at 5:30 – 6:45 in Wexner 102, and occasionally on other weekdays, the series will also be shared on Facebook Live and on the Carr Center website. A light dinner will be served.

Steven Livingston, Senior Fellow at the Carr Center for Human Rights Policy and Professor of Media and Public Affairs at George Washington University, will be giving a talk titled, "Chess, Go and AI: When Computers Outwit Humans."
