Free and open to the public. No registration required. This event is presented by the Veritas Forum and co-sponsored by the Lumen Christi Institute. 

We find ourselves on the cusp of a revolution. In the realm of language, image, and voice, AI technologies showcasing incredible potential, such that distinguishing the work of humans from computers is becoming nearly impossible. What does this mean for human identity and purpose? What might this mean for our future?

Join us for the University of Chicago Veritas Forum as we bring computer science into conversation with theology, philosophy, and ethics. Duke theologian and ethicist Norman Wirzba will participate in a moderated dialogue with University of Chicago computer science researchers Ben Y. Zhao over the implications of an AI-saturated future. A Q&A will follow.
