Discussions about artificial intelligence (AI), robotics, and their impact on humans and the future of human society continue to figure prominently across the global media and policy agendas. In the current global pandemic, AI and robotics have once again demonstrated their great potential for contributing to the well-being of human society.
This current book is centered on how we may rethink foundational values by tapping into the wisdom of Chinese philosophical traditions. Concurring with such observations and provocations and to foster innovative foundational thinking befitting this era, the China Center of the Berggruen Institute brought together AI scientists and Chinese philosophers in late 2017 and since then conducted a series of dialogues and workshops. These discussions, which took place over an 18-month period, culminated in this current volume that reflects on AI’s impact on human beings and the human society by philosophers well-versed in Confucianism, Daoism, Buddhism, and Western philosophical traditions.
