What students have said about this class:
"Thought provoking workshop. At the intersection of tech and philosophy. Truly important conversations to be had, driven by some of the insights shared here.

Absolutely crucial that we all be aware of the power of AI and that we use it to craft the better world we want to live in. Thank you for offering this workshop."
