Event Description

Although it sounds like science fiction, the technology already exists to create weapons that can attack targets without human input. In Army of None, Paul Scharre, a leading expert in emerging weapons technologies, draws on deep research and firsthand experience to explore how these next-generation weapons are changing warfare.

What are the ethical implications of autonomous weapons? Can artificial intelligence adequately mirror human judgement?

Paul Scharre is a former U.S. Army Ranger who served in Iraq and Afghanistan. He is the director of the Technology and National Security Program at the Center for a New American Security. He is also a contributor to Foreign Policy, Politico, and The New York Times.

This panel explores how to advance ethical leadership on climate justice globally, nationally, and locally in the years ahead. Topics include the Paris Agreement and commitments going forward, geoengineering governance, the problems in California, and the creative ways the Seychelles are coping.

Greed, Movies, and Capitalism with Ethicist John Paul Rollert

Every capitalist economy struggles with how to come to terms with greed, says John Paul Rollert, an expert on the intellectual history of capitalism. He describes how our perspective has changed from the Christian view of greed as an unalloyed sin, to the 18th century idea that it could bring positive benefits, to the unabashed "Greed is good" ethos in the movie "Wall Street." Where do we stand now? How can we rehabilitate capitalism?
