As part of its humanities lecture series, a special lecture on ‘How will the world be different with ChatGPT?‘ will be held at the UNIST branch of Jigwanseoga on March 20, 2023.
Held under the theme of ‘Sustainability of Coexistence of Humans and Machines,’ this lecture will be delivered by Professor Dae-Shik Kim from the Electrical and Electronic Engineering Department at KAIST, who is also a renowned neuroscientist with enormous contributions to the following fields of neuroscience, high-field MRI, neuro-engineering, and brain reverse engineering.
In this lecture series, Professor Kim aims to offer a glimpse of the world from a neuroscience perspective, while explaining the sustainability of coexistence of humans and machines, focusing on his recently-published book,『Asking ChatGPT about the The Future of Humanity』.
Modern communications is expanding to human-to-AI, beyond human-to-human. Inspired by this, Professor Kim will explain the questions about “How to Live with AI” and “What Capabilities Are Required for Us to Coexist with AI?”.
Located on the first floor of UNIST’s multi-purpose cultural space, the humanities space ‘Jigwanseoga‘ has been structured around the theme of meditation in September 2022. This space, where students and local citizens can meet and communicate through books, has been steadily conducting online and offline lectures planned by the Foundation Academia Platonica, a non-profit organization that supports the development of research in the humanities. The UNIST Branch of Jigwanseoga selects topics related to meditation and give lectures on the fourth Thursday of each month.
The 2023 lecture series has been organized under the following four themes: “Me and the Others,” “Goals and Values,” “Symbiosis and the Environment,” and “Aging and Death.” It invites scholars and humanities activists from each field to give lectures on thinking about life questions together. In the case of this lecture, it is a special lecture conducted online and offline apart from regular lectures.
