Schedule

Discussion: Saving Everyone. Effective Charity: How to Choose Who to Help? 14+

The participants will discuss how to evaluate the social impact of charity programs and whether it is possible to maintain a balance between the intention to “save everyone” and our limited resources.

While some charity organizations support children, others aid elderly people. Can we claim however that any of these directions is more important than the rest? WWF Russia, for instance, does not work with waste—despite it being a crucial environmental problem. It also operates in various regions but has deliberately distanced itself from the preservation of Baikal. Is it better to invest a large sum of money in the education of a particular talented child at one of the world’s top universities—or in the creation of an online course accessible to many children across the globe? 

The group will have to exercise in an ethical arithmetic of sorts, discuss the critical global agenda, learn how to evaluate the quality of an information source, and get introduced with the works of artists displayed in the show The Coming World that address these topics.

Lecture: Life 3.0: Artificial Intelligence and Future. 12+

Based on research, expert opinions, and trends in the world of innovations and cutting-edge technologies, the speakers will try to find an answer to the question “what it means to be human in the age of smart machines” and offer their vision of a possible intercommunication between natural and artificial intelligence. The audience will learn about the probability of developing a “powerful” type of artificial intelligence, what will happen in case it is produced, whether we should consider AI a new life form, what AI can eventually become for humans—a friend, opponent, or inheritor, and, most importantly, how people are going to build a relationship with “life 3.0”.
