“Autonomous Systems and Conflicting Feelings: Do we have to collaborate with machines?” Jamie Winders, Director, Autonomous Systems Policy Institute (ASPI), Maxwell School of Citizenship and Public Affairs, Syracuse University.  
As one of Syracuse University’s newest institutes, the Autonomous Systems Policy Institute (ASPI) is driven by  the advancement of knowledge through the exploration of the policy and governance that surrounds the field of autonomous systems.  In her talk, ASPI Director, and Professor of Geography, Jamie Winders will touch on the main questions driving the institute including how the proliferation of autonomous systems – unmanned aerial vehicles, driver-less cars, platooning trucks, and so on – as well as the artificial intelligence & algorithms on which these systems depend, raise pressing questions about human/machine collaboration and conflicts. As ASPI is a campus-wide institute with the goal of interdisciplinary work between the likes of the Maxwell School, Falk College, the School of Visual Performing Arts, and numerous others,  the presentation will also focus on the ways that faculty and students can get involved with ASPI and the cutting edge work they are producing. 

Conversations in Conflict Studies is a weekly educational speaker series for students, faculty, and the community. The series, sponsored by PARCC, draws its speakers from Syracuse University faculty, national and international scholars and activists, and PhD students. Pizza is served.

We’re Turning 100!

To mark our centennial in the fall of 2024, the Maxwell School will hold special events and engagement opportunities to celebrate the many ways—across disciplines and borders—our community ever strives to, as the Oath says, “transmit this city not only not less, but greater, better and more beautiful than it was transmitted to us.”

Throughout the year leading up to the centennial, engagement opportunities will be held for our diverse, highly accomplished community that now boasts more than 38,500 alumni across the globe.
