About this Event:
In the past decade, artificial intelligence (AI) has become a disruptive force around the world, offering enormous potential for innovation but also creating hazards and risks for individuals and the societies in which they live. The new Cambridge Handbook of Responsible AI (published 11/2022, Cambridge University Press) addresses pressing philosophical, ethical, legal, and societal challenges posed by AI. We invite you to join us and discuss with authors and editors from different disciplines the foundational and normative aspects of responsible AI that provide a basis for a transdisciplinary approach to responsible AI.

We invite you to explore the concept of 'Constitution' through a look into Connecticut's constitutional history. Our state is known by many names, including the Nutmeg State and the Land of Steady Habits. But its official nickname is, of course, the Constitution State. From the Fundamental Orders of 1639, which some historians argue was the first American constitution, to the current state constitution passed in 1965, Connecticut has had many different documents serve as the basis of our state government. They define the powers and limits of elected officials, establish how new laws are made, and list the basic rights of all citizens. But what constitutes a constitution? How do constitutions affect the daily lives of citizens? What fundamental principles does a constitution need to meet to be legitimate? Join us in dissecting these issues through short readings, small group discussion, and engagement with specialists on the subject.
Lunch will follow for all participants.

This UConn Beyond the Field conversation will focus on examining FIFA in the context of human rights, and particularly the time from Qatar 2022 to the United States 2026. The session will explore the challenges and opportunities for advancing a human rights agenda before, during and after a World Cup. We will address the role and responsibility of FIFA and its obligations to established international human rights, and discuss the role of athletes, leaders, civil society and advocates. The conversation will examine and bring attention to lessons learned and potential recommendations from Qatar 2022 that can be prioritized and highlighted for the USA in 2026.
