SRI’s annual conference, Absolutely Interdisciplinary, returns in May

Examining the current state of artificial intelligence (AI) and its social implications necessitates reaching across disciplinary boundaries. The Schwartz Reisman Institute for Technology and Society’s (SRI) annual conference, Absolutely Interdisciplinary, convenes crucial multidisciplinary conversations to build new fields of research and tackle the most urgent questions of our time.

This year, the main Absolutely Interdisciplinary conference takes place exclusively in person on May 7 and 8. Regular admission is $100 CAD and student discounted admission is $50 CAD. The conference will be preceded by the Absolutely Interdisciplinary graduate workshop on May 6, which will be available as an online-only broadcast at no cost.

For the first time, in-person conference sessions will be held in the newly-completed Schwartz Reisman Innovation Campus.

Registration is now open.
