Stellenbosch Institute for Advanced Study (STIAS)

CAIR AI 4 Society Symposium Series

In addition to the 2024 PSSA conference, we are also happy to announce that the AI Ethics Research Group at the Centre for AI Research (CAIR) will host the first 2024 edition of the CAIR AI 4 Society Symposium Series, the day before the PSSA at the same venue.

There is space for 12 papers only. While we prefer a focus on ‘AI and Agency’ as a theme, any abstract on any theme related to AI from a philosophical point of view will be considered.

Please submit abstracts of no more than 300 words to emma.ruttkamp-bloem@up.ac.za by 31 August 2023.

We look forward to hosting you in Stellenbosch in 2024.
