Transcendence Technology: What is it, why is it, and how is it working? (Via Videolink)

Transcendence Technology is a term coined to describe technology built to support the cross-cultural and mystical experience of self-transcendence. In this address, Dr. Mossbridge will outline motivations for creating the term “Transcendence Technology,” discuss different examples of this technology and their pitfalls, and explain why Transcendence Technology may be necessary for human survival. She will especially focus on lessons from the LOVING AI project, an ongoing collaborative project to create AI allowing Sophia the humanoid robot to provoke feelings of unconditional love in humans.
