U of T ALUMNI ASSOCIATION ANNUAL GENERAL MEETING
Thank you to all who joined us at the 2019 U of T Alumni Association (UTAA) Annual General Meeting and Keynote Address on Saturday, June 1, 2019. We look forward to seeing you at next year's AGM!

Do Sentient AIs Have Rights?
AI has already stoked fears about surveillance and mass unemployment. Yet the possibility of creating AIs that think and feel—sentient AIs—raises difficult questions. How should we treat them? Do they have legal rights? Do we also pose a threat to them? Prof. Kingwell’s talk explores the ethics and politics of sentient AIs.
