With origins in ancient India, #karma is a key concept in many belief systems including #Buddhism and #Hinduism. It is the theory that our actions have inevitable and unknowable results in our future, either in this life, or the next. Karma is also described as the good or bad emanations felt to be generated by someone or something.

This conversation explores how the concept of karma can guide us as we push forward towards creating non-human intelligence. How we develop and design #artificialintelligence will impact individuals and society for generations to come. If we think about karma in our interactions with human beings, will we consider it in our interactions with these new artificially intelligent beings as well? Does karma apply to artificially intelligent beings?

How our present and future society chooses to answer these questions could result in major spiritual and ethical shifts with cascading impacts that, like karma, lead to inevitable and unknowable results in our shared future. Join Nikki Mirghafori, Buddhist contemplative and AI research scientist, in conversation with Steve Omohundro on artificial intelligence and karma.
