Join Dr. Rhonda McEwen, Suzanne van Geuns, Robyn Hillman-Harrigan, and De’Aira Bryant for a conversation that explores the intersections between artificial intelligence, spirituality, and critical race theory, moderated by Efosa Obano, lead Program Coordinator for the Black Founders Network at the University of Toronto’s Entrepreneurship Centre.

Overview

Increasingly, humans have looked toward artificial intelligence to overcome human limitations, flaws, and build towards a techno utopia. Private and public companies have tapped into these hopeful associations and are actively looking to AI to automate decision-making processes within economic sectors, health, transportation, retail, education, the justice system, and many more. But, can AI truly solve real-world problems? Does AI make us more human? Faith, spirituality and religion are part of the human experience, and how AI interprets and normalizes these human conditions has huge implications for people of African descent and the BIPOC community at large. How will the Black experience be impacted by these algorithms?

Join Hart House, the Centre for Student Engagement, and the Multi-Faith Centre for a conversation around AI, spirituality, and the Black experience, with guest panelists Dr. Rhonda McEwen, Suzanne van Geuns, Robyn Hillman-Harrigan, and moderated by Efosa Obano, as we explore the intersections between artificial intelligence, spirituality, and Black experiences.
