    This lecture series is part of the Humanities Center's multidisciplinary programming around artificial intelligence and the intellectual and moral challenges it poses. International scholars from across disciplines will join us to explore vital questions such as theological and ethical questions raised by AI, impacts of AI on social life, the nature of the mind and of thought itself. Members of the Humanities Center AI Learning Group invite the community, students and faculty members from across all disciplines to attend. These questions are important for scientists, social scientists, artists and humanists alike. Coordinated by Hannah Holtzman, PhD, Keck postdoctoral fellow in critical technology, USD Humanities Center.

    AI and the Humanities Lecture Series is held on Mondays from April 12 through May 3.
