AI Humanities: Reclaiming Artificial Intelligence

As Director of the Wheaton Institute for the Interdisciplinary Humanities (WIIH), I curate a programme to look at artificial intelligence from the perspective of the humanities. I want to revisit and reclaim AI as an endeavour of the humanities, deeply philosophical, artistic and creative, a project for the liberal arts.

  • How can we understand artificial intelligence as part of the liberal arts, and of the humanities in particular, and not just as another piece of technology?
  • How does AI affect the humanities and how should AI be shaped by the humanities?
  • What philosophy comes implicit or even explicit in AI? What philosophy can potentially be modelled with AI?
  • How can higher education, liberal arts education in particular, make use of AI? What are risks?
  • How does AI touch the life and experience of the students already now, and in the foreseeable future?
