SYMBSYS 2: Sym Sys: Many Parts, Cohesive Whole

The ten branches of the Symbolic Systems major: applied logic, artificial intelligence, cognitive science, computer music, decision making and rationality, human-computer interaction, learning, natural language, neurosciences, and philosophical foundations. Students unfamiliar with the major gain an overview of its branches; students recently involved with the major gain a better idea of which track they should pursue; and students already familiar with the major gain understanding of how the different branches of the program fit together. Sources include films, readings, and presentations by and discussions with Stanford professors and recent alumni.

SYMSYS 122: Artificial Intelligence: Philosophy, Ethics, & Impact

Recent advances in computing may place us at the threshold of a unique turning point in human history. Soon we are likely to entrust management of our environment, economy, security, infrastructure, food production, healthcare, and to a large degree even our personal activities, to artificially intelligent computer systems. The prospect of "turning over the keys" to increasingly autonomous systems raises many complex and troubling questions. How will society respond as versatile robots and machine-learning systems displace an ever-expanding spectrum of blue- and white-collar workers? Will the benefits of this technological revolution be broadly distributed or accrue to a lucky few? How can we ensure that these systems respect our ethical principles when they make decisions at speeds and for rationales that exceed our ability to comprehend? What, if any, legal rights and responsibilities should we grant them? And should we regard them merely as sophisticated tools or as a newly emerging form of life? The goal of this course is to equip students with the intellectual tools, ethical foundation, and psychological framework to successfully navigate the coming age of intelligent machines.
