Chasing Consciousness #10, at Rubin Museum of Art : “Can a Robot Feel Pain?”

Place: Rubin Museum of Art, Art Lounge

Speaker: Susan Schneider (University of Connecticut / Yale University)
Moderated by: Ed Turner (Princeton University)

If and when you encounter an AI, it is best to look beyond superficialities, like a humanlike appearance. Perhaps only biological beings can have experience, or perhaps superintelligent AI doesn’t need to be conscious. Join Susan Schneider, an associate professor of philosophy and cognitive science at the University of Connecticut and a member of the Interdisciplinary Center for Bioethics at Yale University, as she discusses her proposal for a test for determining whether AI can be conscious.
