A Public Lecture by John Milanese
Standard rationality theory considers the possible outcomes of an action, what the costs and payoffs of those outcomes are, and how likely those outcomes are. However, what about the possible outcomes that we overlook? How can we possibly gauge their likelihood and desirability? How can we ‘expect’ the unexpected? Philosopher John Milanese will discuss these questions, and apply this to the specific case of the future and impact of artificial intelligence, robotics, and cognitive technology on our personal lives and society at large.
