AI: Ethics & Diversity Seminar Series with Professor Michael Huth

Talk Title
Diversity in the Age of Convergence Science and AI: A Personal Perspective

Abstract
Convergence science refers to transdisciplinary integrations of scientific disciplines in addressing the world’s pressing problems, in advancing science, and in rethinking how we live, work, and innovate. Diversity – of perspective, education, culture, aspiration, talent, and more – and advances in AI are key enablers of convergence science. In this talk, Professor Huth will reflect on how he learned about and experienced diversity in his adult life and how he will help to enable diverse environments for convergence science and AI.
