Anticipating Obsolescence

Over at the Atlantic are a few articles suggesting that future cities may no longer have street signs. As the argument goes, driverless automated cars are going to depend on high-precision maps. Such maps will be incredibly valuable to companies like Google and Apple, who may no longer be willing to give them away for free to consumers.

TA opportunity

We are looking for TAs for a new course, STV 208: Artificial Intelligence & Society.

These concerns include historical determinism, automation, surveillance, regulation, equity, fairness, and robo-ethics.  An overview will be provided on these issues as they arise in areas such as commerce, education, finance, journalism, law, literature, healthcare, transportation, warfare, and work.  
This course is a non-technical one—no background in AI is assumed or required.
 

If you are interested and qualified, please contact Wendy Stocker before the end of Wednesday, Dec. 8.  Thanks!
