Event Details

New Founding Member Muhammad Aurangzeb Ahmad will also be giving a talk at the Washington State Museum on October 17, 2019 at 6:30 pm on his own work using AI to create a simulation of his deceased father that can interact with Ahmad’s daughters, who were born after their grandfather passed away. The talk will delve into the moral, ethical and legal implications of AI technologies. What does it mean for identity if we can simulate a person’s personality? Does it lighten the weight of death if we can interact with a simulation after a person has died? Can we ban people from creating digital simulations of ourselves?
