All Things Have Standing: 4.7 -- Future Stories -- Machine Virtue

In this closing chapter of our journey through the ethics of artificial intelligence, Prof. Shannon
Vallor explores the fundamental philosophical and practical question humanity must answer if
we are to live harmoniously with smart machines: Is it possible to build a machine that has
virtue? What is virtue? What does it mean to flourish and flourish with us? What is virtue as
moral intelligence and must machines be virtuous to be trustworthy? How do we become
virtuous? What are the core virtues? Do we need machines themselves to embody virtues like
justice, compassion and honesty, and have the practical wisdom to practice these virtues? Do
artificial moral agents need to be tied to our own moral judgment and preferences? Prof. Vallor
explains value alignment and its role in developing trust. She concludes by exploring an array of
key ethical and design questions remaining for us to answer if we and machines are to act and
live well together in a flourishing society.

Shannon Vallor is a philosopher of technology. She is the Baillie Gifford Chair in the Ethics of Data and Artificial Intelligence at the Edinburgh Futures Institute.

"All Things Have Standing" is a course in human psychology and the ethics of artificial intelligence and environmental law inspired by a powerful idea from the audio drama "Spark Hunter"—that all things have ethical standing. "All Things Have Standing" is presented by Carnegie Council in collaboration with Fighter Steel Education. Inspired by a futuristic story of a highly advanced A.I. experiencing existential crisis, All Things Have Standing explores, with leading scholars, A.I. and environmental ethics, the psychology and philosophy which underlie them, and the extraordinary challenges they raise for the global community.

Dr. Judith Orloff | Radical Empathy in the Workplace | Talks at Google

Judith Orloff MD, a New York Times bestselling author of "The Empath’s Survival Guide" and the upcoming “Radical Empathy," discusses how to ignite the power of empathy and intuition at work, teaching viewers how sensitive people can thrive in an insensitive world.

There is a powerful connection between your emotions, intuition, and empathy. The magic comes when you learn how to tap into each of them to access your sensitivities without going on overload or becoming drained by challenging or stressful situations at work. Learning how to keep your center and avoid burnout in all situations is important to identify emotional triggers so you can master strategies to own the moment in your interactions.

Dr. Orloff is a psychiatrist, an empath and is on the UCLA Psychiatric Clinical Faculty. She synthesizes the pearls of traditional medicine with cutting edge knowledge of intuition, empathy, and energy awareness. She also specializes in treating empaths and highly sensitive people in her private practice and does online sessions with individuals and businesses internationally. Her work has been featured in O Magazine, Forbes, Business Insider, The London Sunday Times, CNN, The Today Show, PBS, BBC and NPR.

Paul Slovic | Confronting the Deadly Arithmetic of Compassion | Talks at Google

Paul Slovic discusses human perception towards mass tragedies and losses at scale.

We as a global society value individual lives greatly and respond strongly to protect a single person in need, but often ignore mass tragedies and fail to take appropriate measures to reduce their losses. As the numbers grow larger, we become insensitive; the data fail to trigger the emotion or feeling necessary to motivate action. In some cases, large numbers convey a false sense of inefficacy, discouraging us from taking valuable actions. Understanding how our minds deceive us in the face of large losses of life is essential to motivating actions needed to reduce the harm from catastrophic consequences such as those associated with poverty, disease, climate disasters, and violence.

Paul Slovic received his B.A. degree from Stanford University, and his M.A. and Ph.D. degrees in psychology from the University of Michigan. In 1976, Dr. Slovic founded the research institute Decision Research with Sarah Lichtenstein and Baruch Fischhoff, where he currently serves as President. He has also been a professor of psychology at the University of Oregon since 1986. He and his colleagues worldwide have developed methods to describe risk perceptions and measure their impacts on individuals, industry, and society. His most recent work examines “psychic numbing” and the failure to respond to global threats from genocide and nuclear war. He publishes extensively and serves as a consultant to industry and government.

Dr. Slovic is a past President of the Society for Risk Analysis and in 1991 received its Distinguished Contribution Award. In 1993 he received the Distinguished Scientific Contribution Award from the American Psychological Association. In 1995 he received the Outstanding Contribution to Science Award from the Oregon Academy of Science. He has received honorary doctorates from the Stockholm School of Economics (1996) and the University of East Anglia (2005). Dr. Slovic was elected to the American Academy of Arts and Sciences in 2015 and the National Academy of Sciences in 2016.

July 2020 | Dr. Renee Lertzman | Citizens' Climate Lobby

Feeling anxious and overwhelmed about climate change and our ability to solve the problem? Our guest this month, environmental psychologist Dr. Renee Lertzman, says we have a window of tolerance that, once we exceed it, causes us to shut down. Turning to the tools of psychology, we can acknowledge the feelings of anxiety that can immobilize us and create conditions that allow us to show up as our brilliant selves. Dr. Lertzman’s unique and integrated approach brings together the best of the behavioral sciences, social sciences and innovative design sciences to create a powerful approach to engagement and social change.

On Nudge by Richard Thaler

Author and economist Richard Thaler discusses "Nudge: The Final Edition", co-authored by Cass R. Sunstein, which demonstrates how best to nudge us in the right directions, without ever restricting our freedom of choice.

Every day people make decisions: about the things they buy or the meals they eat; about the investments they make and the time they spend; about their health and the health of the planet. Unfortunately, people often choose unwisely. Nudge: The Final Edition shows us that we are all susceptible to biases that can lead us to make bad decisions that make us poorer, less healthy and less happy. And, as Thaler and Sunstein show, it is not possible for choices to be presented to us in a neutral way. Given this fact of life, why not try to help people choose what is best for themselves, for their families and for society?

Richard H. Thaler was awarded the 2017 Nobel Memorial Prize in Economic Sciences for his contributions to the field of behavioral economics. He is the Charles R. Walgreen Distinguished Service Professor of Behavioral Science and Economics at the University of Chicago Booth School of Business. He is a member of the National Academy of Science and the American Academy of Arts and Sciences, and in 2015 he was the president of the American Economic Association. He has been published in numerous prominent journals and is the author of "Misbehaving: The Making of Behavioural Economics".

Can We Trust Our Feelings and Intuition? with Eckart Tolle

The conditioned mind will often create feelings out of fear, and these should not be the guiding force in your life. Eckhart urges us instead to discover the deeper feelings that arise from Presence—the source of true intuition—and to let that guide your actions.
