Chinese Perspectives on AI in Global Context

Over the course of the 2022-2023 academic year, Georgetown University’s Representative Office in Rome and the School of Oriental and African Studies (SOAS, University of London) organized a series of closed workshops around the theme “Chinese Perspectives on AI in Global Context: Towards a New Ethical Eco-System.”

The conversations brought together diverse scholars and practitioners: AI engineers and experts in digital media and communications, philosophers and ethicists, and scholars of Chinese thought and civilization across disciplines. The aim was to bring Chinese perspectives on AI into the emergent global dialogue about its wider cultural, economic, and policy implications for humanity and its future.

The event series concludes with a public webinar in April 2024 on “The Interface between Human and Artificial Intelligence: Chinese Approaches in Global Context.”
