About Absolutely Interdisciplinary

Understanding the capacities and limitations of complex new technologies like artificial intelligence (AI) calls for more than just a technical perspective. Absolutely Interdisciplinary convenes researchers from across disciplines to build new, interdisciplinary approaches to advance our understanding of how to meet the challenge of ensuring AI and other powerful technologies promote human well-being. This year, Absolutely Interdisciplinary takes place virtually, on November 4-6, 2021.

About this year’s theme: Human and machine normativity

Humans are a fundamentally normative species, with complex cognitive and social systems for shaping behaviour to implement collectively-determined values and norms in support of cooperation. Building AI systems that are robustly aligned with human values requires deep understandings of how these normative systems work. At the same time, advances in AI present unique opportunities to investigate and test what capacities contribute to our ability to build, maintain, and abide by norms. This year, Absolutely Interdisciplinary takes up the challenge of exploring these dynamics under the theme Human and Machine Normativity: New Connections. Learn more.
