International Symposium on Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Humans, the Future of Society and Religion in SAC

International Symposium on Artificial Intelligence, Robotics, Human, Future of Society and Religion at St. Aloysius College (Autonomous), Mangaluru from 18th to 20th November 2022

Mangaluru: Addressing the media during a press meet held at the Mangaluru Press Club, Dr. Alwyn Desa, Registrar of St. Aloysius College (Independent), said, “Being like God has been the dream of many human beings since the dawn of civilization. It seems that the amazing strides that modern science has made over the past The past 400 years, and especially the last 100 years, give humans so much hope that this dream is within their reach.No other breakthrough in science and technology is more reassuring in this context than Artificial Intelligence (AI), especially when combined with robotics and human technology “.

He also said: “Artificial intelligence is an intelligence that is produced artificially in a machine. It is an attempt to produce human-like intelligence in a man-made machine. Today, artificial intelligence and its related fields have become some of the most active centers of scientific research and development (R & D). 2020, there are no less than 72 active research and development projects related to artificial intelligence in 37 countries.Artificial intelligence with its applications in robotics and humans has brought about a revolution whose consequences are expected to go beyond the field of science and technology to affect many important aspects of human existence and life, to the extent that it may not It would be inappropriate to talk about the revolution of “robot artificial intelligence.” Fear has been expressed that as a result of this revolution, human beings, equipped with high-quality artificial intelligence and other technological improvements, may outpace and outperform ordinary humans to make them redundant, nor Especially the poor and unskilled who are engaged in many ordinary jobs. in different parts of the world.”

Another reason for the growing importance of the AI ​​robotic revolution is the great diversity and widespread application of AI-powered robots and humans. There is a long line of robots to meet the needs of many fields. In the human world, a wide variety is also available. A group of major, almost comprehensive, developments of this kind are bound to have a strong impact on many aspects of human life and activities at various levels, raising serious questions. First of all, what is intelligence? Scientists point out that so far we only have a similar idea of ​​this common phenomenon; Existential understanding remains elusive. All the proponents and promoters of AI-driven robotics and human tissues agree that their products are just machines, albeit highly sophisticated and highly effective in their field. Until these become conscious, they cannot be placed even at the level of low-level animals,” added Dr. Alwin Disa.

Also speaking on the occasion, Reverend Goop Kozamthdam, Director of the Institute of Ismaili Studies, Delhi, said: “How can science make them conscious? More profoundly, can science make them conscious at all? The fundamental question lies at its root: What is consciousness? Again, We only have a phenomenological understanding of consciousness We only have certain reliable criteria or indicators to reveal that the being in question is conscious The true nature or ontology of this phenomenon remains a mystery Another area of ​​concern in this context is the impact of AI robots and humans on society What are some of the consequences How will the current society deal with them creatively and responsibly? Can we regard these new creatures as people like us humans? If so, can we regard them as moral agents able to know and freely choose their preferences?”

In 2017, Hanson Robotics’ socialite “Sophia” was granted citizenship by Saudi Arabia. What are its effects? Is it a sign of Saudi Arabia’s respect and respect for women or is it, as some critics point out, a publicity stunt and business promotion? Again, how will these new developments affect the economies of countries, especially the poor and less developed ones? There is no doubt that although this new industry will provide some very attractive jobs with good wages, it will leave a large section of the existing workforce without work and eventually penniless. Can we afford such a fate to befall our society? Father Job added

As Father Job said: “There is no doubt that some of these intelligent robots will be very useful in the fields of industry, space exploration, advanced medical interventions, etc. It is also certain that these facilities will be very expensive and will exceed even the dreams of ordinary people. There are possibilities That the main, if not exclusive, beneficiaries of these newcomers will be the super-rich and the super-cared for. Ordinary people will only be left to watch and wonder! Will not this scenario widen the gap between the rich and the poor? These and related issues will be studied and critically evaluated by Admitted panel of international and national scholars in an international colloquium organized by the Indian Institute of Science and Religion) in close collaboration with St. Aloysius College (Autonomous), Mangaluru and Principal Catholic Church, Mangalore University on 18-20 November 2022. This is the 14th International Colloquium organized by the Institute of Studies Ismailis of Delhi on the latest issues in science and technology and their impact on human society and religious values”.

Other members who attended the platform during the press meeting were – Ms. Flora Swans, Dean of Training, Placement and Careers, and Ms. Chandrakala, PRO
