Markkula Center Joins International AI Partnership

Thu, 02 Nov 2017 11:53:00 PDT

SANTA CLARA, Calif., Nov. 2, 2017—Santa Clara University’s Markkula Center for Applied Ethics was named as one of 21 new members of the Partnership on AI to Benefit People and Society (PAI). PAI is a non-profit organization working to advance public understanding of artificial intelligence technologies (AI) and formulate best practices on the challenges and opportunities within the field. “Artificial intelligence presents a fast growing range of difficult ethical challenges for American and global society. The Markkula Center has demonstrated that it can address rapidly developing ethical challenges and make productive contributions to how they are handled by organizations and governments,” said Kirk Hanson, director of the Markkula Center for Applied Ethics. The objective of the Partnership on AI is to address opportunities and challenges with AI technologies to benefit people and society. Together, the organization’s members will conduct research, recommend best practices, and publish research under an open license in areas such as ethics, fairness, and inclusivity; transparency, privacy, and interoperability; collaboration between people and AI systems; and the trustworthiness, reliability, and robustness of the technology. “The Partnership on AI is an organization built on the ethical ideal that AI should benefit people and society. From my experience at the recent PAI meeting in Berlin, I know that this ethical ideal really is the driving force bringing all the very diverse partners together, in the hope that AI can be used for great good, and that AI’s evil uses can be avoided,” said Brian Green, assistant director of campus ethics programs at the Markkula Center. “Given PAI's ethical mission, the Markkula Center is in exactly the right place, in the middle of great people representing great organizations, who want to deeply engage ethical questions and improve the world.” The efforts of the Partnership on AI are organized around a set of thematic pillars, which currently include: Safety-Critical AI Fair, Transparent, and Accountable AI Collaborations Between People and AI Systems AI, Labor, and the Economy Social and Societal Influences on AI AI and Social Good Special Initiatives The partners hail from three continents and represent a broad cross-section of industry, nonprofit, and academic organizations.

(Re)Writing the Narrative Provides a Platform to Discuss Social Narratives

Tue, 26 Sep 2017 00:06:00 PDT


SANTA CLARA, Calif., Sept. 26, 2017—The de Saisset Museum at Santa Clara University will present (Re)Writing the Narrative, an exhibition on view Sept. 29–Dec. 1, 2017. The exhibition offers a platform to consider the ways in which art can help call into question social narratives.

Spanning multiple mediums, the exhibition features pieces from the museum’s permanent collection as well as works on loan from private collections to explore how artists can create new understandings of our values and societal structures, using humor, abstraction, and, at times, pointed commentary. The artworks in this exhibition include paintings, photographs, prints, and video. They address diverse topics ranging from oppression to commercialism, from expectations fostered by fairytales to specific historical events. Some artists directly target the Western art historical canon, others comment on current events happening in our politics today. 

This exhibition includes works by Ana Teresa Fernández, Andy Warhol, Carrie Mae Weems, Chris Hardy, Deborah Oropallo, Evri Kwong, Hung Liu, Kathy Aoki, Masami Teraoka, and William Hogarth.

A public reception for the exhibition will be held on Thursday, Sept. 28, from 7 p.m. to 8:30 p.m at the de Saisset Museum. This event is free and open to the public. Also on view (and opening that same night) will be the exhibition Michael Mazur’s L’Inferno di Dante.
